Using chanting, meditation, poses, and breath, a Kundalini practice helps you channel your energy from the bottom of your spine to your whole being’s energy centers, or chakras. Labeled the “yoga of awareness” by many, Kundalini captures the elevation of the spirit: as the energy flows within you, rising from your lower chakras to the higher ones, the delivery of enlightenment and the highest consciousness is achieved.
Kundalini stems from the Sanskrit word, kundala, meaning coiled, or kundalini, which has been translated as “the curl of the lock of hair of the beloved” (yogic testimonies suggest it being theorised as both a coiled-up or sleeping serpent at the base of the spine and as a metaphor to conceptualise the flow of energy and consciousness found within each person.
