About Kundalini Yoga
A combination of physical practice and theory. The techniques of Kundalini have been used over centuries to extract from the inner self of man the ability to understand who he is and what he is capable of doing. The uniqueness of the practice is that it addresses the demands of modern society – full of information and stimulus – allowing us to achieve balance between work and home, manage stress effectively, maximize our creative capacity and understand, perhaps a little clearer, exactly where it is we are headed as individuals. The practice of Kundalini Yoga helps purify and improve the workings of the body –its organs and glands– and helps you define priorities through meditation and mindfulness techniques. The Teacher Training provides a physical technology in its maximum expression, which leads to a connection with our deepest inner self.
