The “Yoga of Awareness,” the “Mother of All Yogas,” and known as a sacred science, Kundalini yoga is coming to Vikasa Yoga and Pilates Studio in Cold Spring. “Many people practice yoga, but few have ever heard of or practiced Kundalini yoga,” says Siri Chand Kaur, certified teacher of Kundalini yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
This ancient yoga practice was kept secret and only began being shared with outsiders and the West since the late 1960s. It encompasses breathing techniques, postures, body locks, eye focus, mantra (chanting), mudra (hand positioning), sound, and meditation in a conscious and precise format to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, and harness the energy of the mind and emotions, all leading to one experiencing his or her highest consciousness.
Chand says: “We all have Kundalini energy, the unlimited potential that exists in every single one of us, that lays dormant at the base of our spine. Through Kundalini yoga we are able to awaken that energy and send it up through the chakras to experience full enlightenment.
“What I like best is that this is a form of yoga that anyone can do. Regardless of your age or experience or lack of experience practicing yoga, absolutely everyone can benefit from this practice and feel the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual effects.”
Chand has been teaching throughout the Hudson Valley since 2006 and is featured on the health and wellness show on WHUD 100.7 FM’s Kacey on the Radio every week with her Kundalini Moment segments. She will be offering a free introductory Kundalini yoga workshop at Vikasa, located at 15 Main St. in Cold Spring, on Oct. 13 from 1 – 3 p.m.
