Kundalini Yoga is a system of meditative techniques and movements focused on the breath and body. Kundalini Yoga is designed to free energy in the lower body, allowing it to move upwards through the use of meditation, mantra, physical exercises and breathing techniques.
Kundalini Yoga uses rapid, repetitive movements rather than holding poses for a long time. The teacher will often lead the class in call and response chanting.
The interpretation/translation of the Sanskrit term “kundalini” means “that which is coiled” in reference to energy coiled at the bottom of the spine which can be released through Kundalini practice.
