We thought that to help curious people or beginners, a little information might help. And for the experienced people, a little reminder never hurt anybody !

So, what is Kundalini Yoga ?

Kundalini is above all the name a spiritual powerful energy. At rest, it is located at the basis of the spine, near the chakra’s root. When this energy is activated, it goes all the way up the spine, passing through all 7 chakras.

But “why wake this spiritual energy up?” you may ask? The aim is the awakening of your inner self and the realization of your being. No less !

And that’s what Kundalini Yoga is all about. Often considered as an ancient Yoga form because it combines all the components of Yoga, it is, however, a lot different than the most famous ones like Vinyasa or Ashtanga… This practice is very powerful, and works in series just like Ashtanga. There are hundreds of those series, also named Kriyas. They use breathing repetitions (pranayama), with static or moving postures, but also meditation, mantras, mudras and relaxation.

It is credited with many spiritual vertues but not only…
