Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini is a concentrated form of prana or life force, lying dormant in the root chakra, at the base of spinal column. When this force is “awakened”, it springs upwards from one chackra to another until it arise on the top chakra (Sahasrara). At this level the yogi experiences mystical states of consciousness of indescribable ecstasy and the duality is transcended. This is the main goal in Kundalini Yoga.

Kundalini is the energy that exists in a latent state in man at the base of the spinal column. When this force is “awakened”, it springs upwards (or downwards if the person is practising the headstand  position ''Shirshasana''). It moves along the central axis of the body (the spinal column) towards the crown or  lotus on the top of the head (Sahasrara chakra). Yoga tradition mentions the existence of  7 energetic centres (chakras), whose levels comprise the steps or phases of the process of creation. When rising from one level to another, Kundalini is given different names, according to the chakra where it settles. For instance, in the heart chakra (Anahata), Kundalini is called Hamsa and in the chakra in the middle of the forehead (Ajna) it is called Bindu. Sometimes Kundalini can ascend so much that it goes beyond the top of the head. Here it creates a mystical state of consciousness of indescribable ecstasy with duality no longer existing.

Kundalini yoga is a physical and meditative discipline, comprising a set of techniques that use the mind, senses and body to create a communication between &quot;mind&quot; and &quot;body&quot;. Kundalini yoga focuses on psycho-spiritual growth and the body's potential for maturation, giving special consideration to the role of the spine and the endocrine system in the understanding of yogic awakening.&nbsp;<br />
Kundalini is a concentrated form of prana or life force, lying dormant in chakras in the body. It is conceptualized as a coiled up serpent (literally, 'kundalini' in Sanskrit is 'That which is coiled.' Sanskrit kund, &quot;to burn&quot;; kunda, &quot;to coil or to spiral&quot;). The serpent is considered to be female, coiled up three and a half times, with its mouth engulfing the base of the Sushumna nadi.<br />
In the classical literature of Kashmir Shaivism kundalini is described in three different manifestations. The first of these is as the universal energy or para-kundalini. The second of these is as the energizing function of the body-mind complex or prana-kundalini. The third of these is as consciousness or shakti-kundalini which simultaneously subsumes and intermediates between these two. Ultimately these three forms are the same but understanding these three different forms will help to understand the different manifestations of kundalini.
