Kundalini Yoga: Develop Consciousness through Mind, Body, and Soul (Online Course)

Kundalini yoga

Develop heart-centered consciousness

Kundalini Yoga has been considered the YOGA of AWARENESS since it came to North America in the 1960's. It helps us become more intuitive and aware of ourselves, our thoughts, our motivations, our speech and gives us more of a connected consciousness so that mindfulness in all activities is possible.

Kundalini Yoga allows us to gently become aware of our family and social conditioning and the subconscious patterns which drive the biases of our perception. It is an ancient "mother" yoga, which effectively moves the prana in the chakras, boosts the immune system, and allows a feeling of connectedness and belonging which is our natural state of being.

In this course, each class includes stretching and holding postures, pranayama breathing techniques, a deep relaxation and a meditation. The meditation is sometimes silent and sometimes mantric.

Course outline

Week 1

Detox: Supporting the energy of the organs which are involved in detoxifying the body, the lungs, the skin, the intestines and kidneys. Using breathing techniques to bring the pranic energy into flow and connecting the organs and glandular system is the theme of this class.

Week 2

Elevation of Consciousness: This class involves moving the pranic energy in all the chakras in order to establish a good flow of energy breaking up old emotional patterns. This kriya or set of exercises takes the edge of moodiness or normal depression in such a way that we immediately can discern the difference between normal consciousness and a more energized and elevated state.

Week 3

Nabdi Kriya: This kriya is focused on moving the energy of the third chakra , the seat of the self-empowerment energy of the mind. When we move this energy it affects all the other chakras or energy centers just like when we laugh from our bellies it moves the energy of the other centers of the body, increase self-awareness gives perspective and relaxation to the psyche.

Week 4

Kidney and Adrenalin Support Kriya: This is an excellent set of exercises to do in the winter time when the kidneys are under stress from keeping up their functions of homeostasis from the hot-cold realities form external environment and internal. Working along with the kidneys the adrenalin glands can always use an extra shot of support in the dark cold months when motivation may be waning.

Week 5

Heart-centered Consciousness: This set of exercises brings us into the heart center and reminds us that there is intelligence in the heart energy and teaches us what it feels like to get out of our heads and dwell in our hearts when making decisions; it puts us in touch with our deeper sense of what we really want and need in the world.
