Kundalini yoga is a form of yoga that uses breath, mantra, and movement to move the kundalini energy throughout ones body. It is believed that we all contain an amount of kundalini energy, or untapped potential energy. It is through the effort of breath, mantra, and movement that one can tap into this internal kundalini energy. The kundalini energy then moves up the base of the spine alongside the chakras which then creates enlightenment.
Many people are confused as to what is kundalini yoga, which is derived from the sanskrit word of “coiled energy”. This energy becomes uncoiled and awakens self awareness. This new found energetic self awareness opens up the person to having an awakening. The kundalini practice is benign to any religious practice.
