Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga uses sound and mantra practices, focused breathwork, and asana posture to free the Kundalini energy that lies dormant at the base of the spine. With the cultivation of this energy, awareness and vitality are awakened and the practitioner may experience heightened states or a “Kundalini Awakening”, or the ecstatic and intense free flow of energy up through all seven chakras. The practice is known for being physically quite intense, but grounded in a deep sense of spiritual purpose and intention.

Kundalini retreats are offered all around the globe, offering the practitioner an opportunity to focus undistracted on the richness of dedicated practice. Whether you seek to become more familiar with the mantras and kriyas or just delve more deeply into your own energetic and spiritual work, a retreat can offer the guidance and instruction you need. Popular destinations include Bali, California, and various provinces in India such as Gao, Kerala and Uttarakhand.
