I remember the first time I tried this type of yoga. It was exhilarating and freeing. I had lapsed on my regular routine. However, I took the time out to do it yesterday and oh what an experience. My soul had been longing for it. Not only was it exhilarating and freeing, it felt quite mind blowing.
Throughout the day I was continually drinking water, more than my normal amount for the day and I was wondering why am I so thirsty. Then it dawned on me; the yoga exercise is also very detoxifying. Some of the moves help you to release toxins out of your body. In addition some release natural medicines in the body. For the physical benefits alone, I would highly recommend you try Kundalini Yoga .
What is Kundalini Yoga ?
It is an elevating combination of spiritual and physical practices; Kundalini Yoga integrates vibrant breathing techniques, meditation, movement and the chanting of mantras, such as Sat Nam, which means truth is my name. The goal of Kundalini Yoga is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness. These practices enable you to merge with your higher self, your innate wisdom which helps you to tap into all the answers within and reach your highest potential. This merging of individual consciousness with universal consciousness creates a divine union.
It is a very powerful energy contained in each and every one of us, and for some people once awoken can be an extremely potent experience assisting with transformation and personal development. Kundalini Yoga stimulates individual growth through systematic techniques that strengthen the nervous system and balance the glandular system (the guardians of health), for increased stability and vitality. This energy is symbolised by the snake going through the back of our spine. This is a similar symbol used in many health institutions, which denotes the healing power of the Kundalini energy. It helps to balance mind, body and soul.
So if you have never tried it before, I recommend you do, and if you have, continue to enjoy the wonderful experience.
Love and light
