Kundalini Yoga is one of the 23 original types of Yoga. It was created thousands of years ago for active people, not for monks. It is an ideal discipline for people who lead active lives as it gives immediate results in a very short time and most of the exercises take 1-11 minutes.
Its effectiveness derives from a combination of body strengthening physical postures, meditation techniques, breathing and sound repetition, which together help fortify the nervous system, stimulate the glandular system, focus the mind and energize the body through relaxation.
The science is rooted in India’s ancient traditions of meditation, and its sacred teachings were originally passed on orally to only a small circle of masters and disciples.
In 1968, however, Yogi Bhajan, aware of the world’s accelerating rhythms and the growing need to face new challenges, decided that the time had come to reveal the secrets of this ancient practice to the West. He therefore travelled to the United States of America and taught there for over 30 years, combining meditation with the Sikh tradition of sound repetition.
