KUNDALINI YOGA, THE YOGA OF AWARENESS

KUNDALINI YOGA

Kundalini may feel different than what you might have experienced in a Vinyasa, Hatha or Iyengar Yoga class.  Kundalini is in all yogas and is considered to be the "yoga of awareness." In kundalini we work to awaken our life force energy and open the energy centers in the body as well as the glandular, circulatory, and nervous system through movement, breathing practices and meditation.
