Experience Yoga

There is no substitute for experience. In these pages you can have a little taste of what it is like to do Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®. The exercises herein are necessarily brief because normally Kundalini Yoga is taught to you in person by trained professional yoga teachers.

Kundalini Yoga was brought to the Western Hemisphere in 1968 by Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga. He said his mission was to create Kundalini Yoga teachers so that this ancient but effective technology would not be lost to the world. Yogi Bhajan fulfilled his mission by teaching public yoga classes nearly every day and by training thousands of Kundalini Yoga teachers over the next forty years all around the globe.

Today the next generation of certified Kundalini Yoga teachers, under the auspices of the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association (IKYTA), are taking on the task of sharing this great technology with millions of people in every continent and virtually every country. All of the Kundalini Wellness Plan yoga teachers are certified Level One IKYTA Kundalini Yoga teachers and they carry professionial liability insurance.

Medical Disclaimer: Nothing in this website is to be construed as medical advice. Always consult your physician before beginning this or any other exercise program. The benefits attributed to the practice of Kundalini Yoga come from centuries-old yogic tradition. Results will vary with individuals.

Therefore if you practice any of the exercises available on this website, you should carefully adhere to the instructions given, including how to Tune In (given below), and you should observe the time duration and/or frequency of practice restrictions stated within the description of each exercise, so that you do not overexert yourself.

First Thing to Do: Tune In

Ong Namo Guroo Dayv Namo

The first thing you should always do at the beginning of any yogic practice is to tune in to the wisdom within you by calling upon it for guidance during the exercise and/or meditation. Even when a trained yoga teacher is present to instruct you, both teacher and student should tune in this way together. Here is how you should tune in:

Sit with a straight spine, eyes closed, hands with palms together in a prayer position in front of the chest. Inhale deep through the nose and use the full breath to chant aloud:

Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo

This is pronounced "ohng" (rhymes with sarong), "nam-oh" (rhymes with ramone), "gu-roo" (rhymes with good-spoon), "dayv" (rhymes with wave), "nam-oh" (rhymes with ramone). This means "I bow to the wisdom within, present everywhere, I bow."

Then inhale again and twice more repeat this chant, each time on a full breath. Then you can begin to exercise.
