The Yoga of Awareness
Kundalini is the energy that connects us to our spirit. It has nothing to do with concepts, religion, or standing on one's head. It's the energy behind all energy: it's called prana by the yogis, chi by the Chinese, ki by the Japanese, and biological energy by the scientist. All we need do is to enable more of this energy to flow into our lives, and we can have a life that is truly healthy, happy, and whole. Kundalini Yoga is the total science of that process. Yoga simply means union and Kundalini Yoga is union with our Kundalini.
So how does one awaken Kundalini? It's through Kundalini yoga that you will learn one of the most effective actions of all, called maha bandha (certain body locks), and certain ways of breathing (called pranayam). With meditations and mantras (certain healing sounds), and even yantras (creative visualizations), it's all quite easy. With certain body postures, stretching, and movements (called asanas), you can even experience the flow of this Kundalini energy through your chakras. These actions, when combined scientifically together are called kriyas.
