“In Kundalini Yoga the most important thing is your experience. It goes right to your heart. No words can replace that experience.” – Yogi Bhajan
Kundalini yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan® is “the Queen among the yoga traditions”. It is the most effective and complete yoga you can practice. It is designed to give you “hands on” experience of your highest consciousness. It teaches a method by which you can achieve the sacred purpose of your life. Kundalini yoga is not a religion; it is universal and nondenominational. It is known as “The yoga of Awareness” and is the fastest way to establish an aligned relationship between your body, mind and soul.
Kundalini yoga is for anyone and everyone. It is for people who have to cope with the daily obstacles and stresses of holding jobs, raising families, managing businesses and maintaining a household. It is for those who want the skills to cope successfully with the challenges of living in this day and age.
“Kundalini yoga classes are a dynamic blend of postures, pranayam, mantra, music and meditation, which teach you the art of relaxation, self-healing and elevation. Balancing body and mind enables you to experience the clarity and beauty of your soul. No previous experience in yoga is required for you to achieve results with your very first class.” – Yogi Bhajan
Kundalini yoga is the most comprehensive of yoga traditions, combining physical and meditative exercises. Virtually every aspect of human existence has an enlightened, efficient, and effective way to do it. Yogis have been custodians of the detailed information on the care and feeding, maintenance, and preservation of a human being.
For thousands of years yogic knowledge was carefully handed down by oral tradition from Master to student. Kundalini yoga was always kept very secret until 1969 when Yogi Bhajan challenged the ages-old tradition of secrecy. His motive? Compassion. He saw the reality of our inner beauty, power, and potential and he wanted us to discover it for ourselves.
To fully appreciate the value of this great gift, we need to understand why, for thousands of years, the Yogis kept it secret. They were selective and guarded because knowledge gives power, and power can corrupt. Traditionally, only after the student demonstrated humility, self-discipline, and obedience would the Teacher reveal the secret kriyas. Yet Yogi Bhajan shared this knowledge openly with everyone in order to prepare humanity for the major changes that this planet is going through as we cross from the Piscean to the Aquarian Age. The ancient technology of Kundalini Yoga can give us the awareness and the strength to make our transition smoother.
The practice of Kundalini yoga and meditation balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system, and enables us to harness the energy of the mind and the emotions, so we can be in control of ourselves, rather than being controlled by our thoughts and feelings.
The list of very real benefits from regularly practicing Kundalini yoga is very long. But, really, what matters most to you is your experience – to acquire a real understanding of Kundalini yoga, do it!
It`s simple: the color white expands a person`s aura, or the electromagnetic field that surrounds every one of us. When our aura is big – we can expand it up to nine feet – we feel strong, balanced, grounded and radiant, and can more easily handle the challenges of our lives with neutrality, peace and calm. When our aura is small, we feel depressed, weak, off- center and ineffective.
This is the explanation that Yogi Bhajan gave as an answer to a question about the wearing of white natural fiber clothing taken from “The Beads of Truth”, Spring 1981:
“We wear white because it’s a simple scientific fact that every piece of matter or material has a foot and a half aura. Every animal has a three and a half foot aura. Every human has a nine foot aura. And if we wear the cotton and we wear the white, this color therapy gives us one extra foot of aura. So, I trust my students will behave right, but in case they behave like animals, they will still have a margin, an edge. And that is what it’s all about. You have to wear a natural fiber and you have to wear white. It’s a pure color therapy and it’s called auric color therapy”
If you haven’t tried wearing white, you should try it. It makes you feel good.
Note: It is not mandatory to wear white in order to attend Kundalini Yoga & Meditation classes.
During a class of Kundalini yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan®, chances are the teacher and many of the students will have their heads covered with a scarf, hat, or turban.
Wearing a head covering enables you to command your sixth center, the Ajna Chakra, to stimulate the 3rd Eye and increase intuition; it helps to stabilize the skull, the cerebral matter and the 26 parts of the brain, which are interlocked with the neurological system and electromagnetic field. It creates a focus of the functional circuit of the hemispheres of the brain, and tunes the neurological system.
The skull is made up of tiny bones that are constantly moving even if only by micromillimeters and the degree to which they move impacts levels of calmness or anxiety. Covering the head provides a sense of containment and focus while practicing yoga or while doing work that requires clarity of thought.
Head coverings of any kind (preferably with a white, natural cloth) are useful for a meditative practice. Turbans in particular are useful for holding energy in, and for creating a meditative focus at the third eye point (brow point). In addition, the turban provides a nice cranial adjustment; it literally helps “keep your head together.”
When the crown of the head (the Seventh Chakra) is covered it can help to stimulate wisdom, inner knowing and a more conscious approach to daily life.
Note: It is not mandatory to cover your head in order to attend Kundalini yoga & meditation classes.

Ayurveda, ancient yet timeless, gives you the means of attaining and maintaining your own optimal health and wellbeing. The benefits of Ayurvedic medicine have been proven over centuries of use, and its methodologies are as applicable today in the West as they were thousands of years ago in India.
Ayurveda’s fundamental approach to well-being is that you must reach your unique state of balance in your whole being—body, mind, and spirit. One must understand the unique nature of each person and situation, taking into account the individual, the season, the geography, and so on.
Each person has an Ayurvedic constitution that is specific to him or her, and movement away from that constitution creates health imbalances; if such imbalances are not addressed, Ayurveda says that illness may develop.
We are proud to offer Banyan Botanical products, a U.S. company providing the largest selection of certified organic Ayurvedic herbs and investing in projects that will continue to expand the range of USDA organic herbs and products available in the future.

Through the ages, yogis have used animal skins to sit on during yoga and meditation:
“On the high slopes of the Himalayan Mount Kailasa, Shiva, the great yogi, sits on a tiger skin, deep in meditation in mystical stillness, and through his meditation the world is kept in position.”
It is traditional for many Kundalini Yoga practitioners to use sheepskins on which to do their yoga. This is personal preference. Yogi Bhajan recommended the sheepskin for meditation, as it created an insulation between the yogi and the magnetic pull of the Earth. Indeed, many people experience deeper states of connection to their Self and the Universe when using a sheep skin as compared to a sticky mat or cushion (synthetic yoga mats are taking up to 1/3 of the aura away from a person).
He said it was traditional for a yogi to use the skin of an animal which had recently died because it is also said to be a blessing for the animal, it helps to liberate their soul.
The sheep skin is great for yoga, it is soft & cushy and great for the ankles when meditating. It has non-allergenic properties. Don`t use it as a rug, but rather as a sacred space, a great addition to your altar or meditation room!
Note: It is not mandatory to have a sheepskin in order to attend Kundalini Yoga & Meditation classes.
