The word kund, means ‘to burn’ and kunda means ‘to coil’ or ‘to spiral’. Kundalini Yoga is based on the 7 chakras (psychic centers) in the body. The attempt to release a Yogic power is known as Kundalini Shakti (energy). This power has the ability to spring awake when activated by Yogic disciplines.
Kundalini Yoga is one of the complicated practices. It consists of many physical poses (asanas), expressive movements and incantations, breathing exercises, and practice of meditation.
The main benefit of Kundalini Yoga is obtained from through inner experience. For this reason, Kundalini Yoga is also called Yoga of Awareness as it awakens the inactive Kundalini. This is an infinite potential existing within each and every one of us. Once this unlimited potential energy has been awakened and released in your body it rises up the 7 physical chakras and rouses the higher centers. This gives you greater intuition and mental clarity as well as creative potential.
