Kundalini Yoga is a very potent and effective system of self-transformation, personal development and mindfulness.

It uses and combines the following techniques: pranayam (breathing techniques), kriyas (body postures / movements), mudras (hand-postures), mantras (sound currents or mentally produced sounds), bhandas (body locks muscle contractions) and dhristi (mental and eye focus).  Kundalini Yoga (KY) is characterised by quite dynamic, repetitive exercises (kriyas).

There is always a strong attention to the breath which helps intensify the effects of the poses with the purpose of freeing energy in the lower body and allowing it to move upwards.  The kriyas help you to, become more aware of your physical, mental and emotional link and to influence that link in a positive way – mindfulness – hence KY is also called ‘The Yoga of Awareness‘…

Kundalini Yoga has a wide range of benefits.  It keeps you healthy, by reducing stress, increasing vitality and productivity.  A regular practice of KY strengthens the muscles, joints and spine, removes toxins from the body, and enhances the functioning of glands, nervous and immune systems.

The yoga and meditations develop and balance both brain hemispheres and give you a stronger focus in your daily activities and at work.  This increases your efficiency and will help you excel in your endeavours.  A regular practice of KY helps you understand your emotions and discern their origin in certain thoughts.  It teaches you how to handle these emotions and change them by changing your thoughts.

A KY practice will also motivate you to adopt a more mindful lifestyle.  KY has proved to be very effective in helping people deal with many diseases of this age for example, stress, burnout, chronic pain, trauma, illnesses, cancer and chemotherapy.  Apart from all this, it also deepens a spiritual awareness and sense of oneness with everything around you.   It stimulates you to live a life of righteousness, compassion, truth, consciousness, and service.

Kundalini Yoga & Mindfulness

When you become aware of yourself from the inside out, when you can learn to change your attitude from something unhappy to happy—this is what is called awareness in yoga, or mindfulness.


In yoga, we talk about being aware and being mindful. Curious to see the similarities and differences in definition.

Awareness: The state or ability to perceive, to feel, or to be conscious of events, objects or sensory patterns. According to 20thcentury spiritual writer and leader, Jiddhu Krishnamurti, choiceless awareness is the state of unpremeditated, complete awareness of the present without preference, effort, or compulsion.

Mindfulness: The self-regulation of attention so that it is maintained on immediate experience, [followed by] adopting a particular orientation toward one’s experiences in the present moment, an orientation that is characterized by curiosity, openness, and acceptance.

In everyday language it can play out this way:

•  Whatever situation you find yourself in, you have thoughts and feelings about it.

•  In being mindful of thoughts and feelings in the moment, you cultivate self-awareness.

•  Self-awareness strengthens focus, which leads to the ability to direct thoughts and feelings.

•  With conscious direction of your thoughts and feelings, you can move into something that feels better.

•  When you feel better, your energetic response, or vibration to life is more positive.

•  When your vibration is positive, you are more closely aligned with your happy, radiant, authentic Self.

•  The energy or vibration you send out is like a signal that attracts other similar frequencies, so your life improves in quality as you attract people and circumstances that are more aligned with your happy, authentic Self.

•  This wonderful chain of events is sparked by simple mindfulness/awareness in the moment!

The Journey

Shamanic journey pix

Once on the path to conscious living, whatever path you chose, you begin elevating your consciousness. This is “the Kundalini rising”. Whether through yoga classes or meditation or breathwork, this raising of the Kundalini energy starts its journey up the spine.

There is no more powerful and quicker way to start the process to obtain consciousness than through the practice of Kundalini yoga. Consciousness is about clarity of decisions… you know when and how to make a move without confusion and judgement. You are in the flow of the universe and do not limit yourself.

The practice of Kundalini yoga uses the technology of mantra and meditation to still the mind, a physical set or kriya, to get you moving and the breath or pranayama to balance the chakras and stimulate the meridians.

Laughter Yoga is the art of Laughter and the science of breathing combined. It is breathing exercises combined with unconditional laughing exercises to bring awareness or consciousness present into our life.

Rebirthing aka Intuitive Energy Breathing or Conscious Energy Breathing, is the most natural healing ability of all. This ability involves merging the inhale with the exhale in a gentle relaxed rhythm in an intuitive way that floods the body with Divine Energy.

Connecting with the Breath is the path. Prana or energy is carried on the breath. Once in connection, therefore control of our breath, we have the key to awareness.
