The practice of Kundalini yoga aims to unlock and awaken the radiant transformative energy that exists within every person. This book is the perfect introduction to the fundamentals of a Kundalini practice. Taught for thousands of years and brought to the West by Yogi Bhajan, Kundalini is a powerful mind-body style of yoga. When practiced regularly, Kundalini yoga can strengthen the nervous system, balance the glandular system, and harness the energy of the mind, emotions, and body, and is surprisingly simple to learn. While general yoga technique focuses on exercise postures and breathing, Kundalini takes the process a step further by integrating yoga into everyday life activities. This definitive guide, fully illustrated with photographs, is an accessible introduction to the ancient practice of Kundalini yoga, with information on poses and positions, diet and lifestyle, breathing and stretching techniques, chanting and meditation exercises, and general guidelines that can help anyone--beginner or advanced--gain the greatest benefit from the practice of yoga.
