What is Kundalini Yoga according to Yogi Bhajan?

Kundalini Yoga is the Yoga of consciousness.

It includes many dynamic movements as well as holding exercises and meditative aspects. Breath and conscious breathing as well as the use of mantras play a central role.

"Kundalini Yoga is the science to unite the finite with Infinity, and it's the art to experience Infinity in the finite."
Yogi Bhajan, 27/10/1988


What does "Kundalini" mean?

Kundalini is a primal life energy that is dormant at the base of the spine. The word Kundala means ringlet or ring and Kundalini means poetically translated "the curl in the lover's hair".

Who is Yogi Bhajan?

Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji, also called Yogi Bhajan, brought the knowledge of Kundalini Yoga from India to the West in the late 1960s. Through his teachings and presence, he inspired many people worldwide, regardless of religion, nationality, or belief. His mission was to train teachers and not to gather students.


How is a Kundalini Yoga class structured?

A classical Kundalini yoga class always contains the following components:

  • Tune in
  • Exercise series / Kriya
  • Deep relaxation
  • Meditation
  • Tune out 

A series of exercises, also called Kriya, may include e.g. dynamic and circulation-stimulating movements, where you can sometimes start sweating alternating with quiet stretching and holding exercises. 


In meditation, the focus is usually on conscious breathing and the recitation of mantras.


The objective is to allow life energy (Kundalini) to flow freely in order to be able to meet the demands of everyday life with more alertness, serenity, self-determination and applied consciousness.


The ultimate objective of Kundalini Yoga is a transformation towards the true self: Sat Nam.
