Where does Kundalini come from?
Kundalini is one of the most sacred and ancient forms of yoga, dating back to around 1,000BC. It incorporates different movements, breathing patterns, postures and postural locks to fully awaken the deep and powerful energies hidden within us. The name ‘kundalini’ comes from the Sanskrit word for ‘coiled snake’, referring to the internal energy that sits coiled up in the base of our spine, waiting to be uncoiled and awoken.
How does it work?
Kundalini works by combining aspects of Bhakti yoga (including chanting), Raja yoga (for achieving mental and physical control), and Shakti yoga (expression of power and energy). Done properly, kundalini activates the mental, perceptual and feeling faculties of our physical self. Using different movements, postures, meditative and breathing techniques; kundalini helps release the full potential and potency of our inner energy by pulling it up through the base of the spine, through the top of the crown and out, helping to improve the balance, flow and functionality of our energy.
