Kundalini is a dynamic, powerful tool for expanding awareness. As an integrated and authentic system of exercise, breath control, chanting, and meditation that has been practiced in India for millenia, it is safe, comprehensive, and simple. Kundalini yoga promotes physical health, stimulates the mind's potential, and touches one's innermost being.
Yin yoga and meditation
Yin yoga uses passive postures held for longer periods of time (around five minutes) to allow for deep opening of the connective tissues in the hips, pelvis, and spine. This practice includes mostly sitting or lying postures to promote growth, clear energetic blockages, and enhance circulation.
