Origin of Kundalini Yoga

Ancient Wisdom

Although Kundalini yoga is practiced around the world, its origin is unknown. The concept of Kundalini energy has been around for centuries and was mentioned in ancient Vedic texts from 1,000 B.C. Kundalini yoga is most associated with Yogi Bhajan, a yoga teacher from Pakistan, introducing Kundalini yoga to Western countries in the 1960s.

Some people think Kundalini Yoga is a religion. Some people think it is physical exercise for vitality and health. Some people think it is a psychological system that develops the potential of the psyche. In reality, this is all true, but overly simplistic. Yoga is essentially a relationship.

The techniques of Kundalini Yoga form the owner's manual for human consciousness. Knowledge becomes wisdom when you experience it with your own heart and Being, when it becomes your personal experience.

The term “Kundalini” comes from the Sanskrit word “kundal,” which means “circular” and refers to a coiled snake, because Kundalini energy is like a coiled snake, sitting at the base of your spine, sleeping and unaroused. In early Eastern religion, it was believed that divine energy was created at the base of the spine, the energy we are born with. Kundalini works to “uncoil the snake” and connect you to this divine energy within.


Yoga of consciousness

The power of your inner energy

Kundalini Yoga awakens you to the power of your inner energy. It is not only about making your body stronger and more energetic, but most importantly about increasing your self-awareness and consciousness.
With special combinations of movements, breath, meditation and chanting, you awaken unused energy within you that contracts at the base of your spine. When you practice Kundalini Yoga, you activate this energy to move up through the chakras (energy centers) along your spine. Awakening this energy enhances consciousness, this practice is also called "yoga of consciousness".

This energy can be drawn up through your body, awakening and balancing each of the seven chakras (energy centers). Full enlightenment occurs when this energy reaches the crown chakra at the top of the head.

​It is your creative potential. You experience it when the energy of the glandular system combines with the energy of the nervous system to create such a sensitivity that the totality of the brain receives signals and integrates them. Then you become totally aware, and your creative potential becomes available to you.
