Kundalini Yoga uses previously secret, ancient and powerful techniques originating in India and brought to the West by Yogi Bhajan in 1968. Practicing Kundalini Yoga helps to raise consciousness so we can better understand ourselves and live a more harmonious life. Involving a dynamic blend of physical postures, breathing techniques, meditation, mantra and relaxation, Kundalini Yoga can be practiced by anyone regardless of age, fitness and experience.
The aim of Tantric Yoga is to expand awareness into all areas of consciousness; wakefulness, dreaming, and sleep states. This requires an unlearning and relearning of the mind that has been programmed from birth and influenced by our genetics and environment. The practices of Tantric yoga enable us to prosper, to thrive and to merge the spiritual world and the material world into one. Join Swami Muktibodhananda for a fascinating insight into our human consciousness.
Yoga Nidra is such effective technique, not only for physical or mental relaxation but also for preparing the mind for the higher yogic discipline.
