50 HOUR KUNDALINI YOGA TEACHER TRAINING COURSE IN RISHIKESH - HARIDWAR, INDIA
Kundalini Yoga is said to be a part of Hatha Yoga which was introduced by Lord Shiva and further introduced by Guru Gorakhnath Ji and later Swami Swataram Ji. Till now, Kundalini Yoga was known by the name of Hatha Yoga. Further in 1968, Yogi Bhajan introduced his own brand of kundalini yoga into the United States, "Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan". But the techniques used were same as of Hatha Yoga.
Before Yogi Bhajan introduced his own way of Kundalini Yoga, Hatha Yoga and Kundalini Yoga were considered to be same. People use to know Kundalini Yoga by the names of Hatha Yoga. All the techniques of Hatha Yoga focus on activating the Kundalini. And for Kundalini energy to flow freely, your body must be in harmony. The way to achieve this harmony begins with practicing Hatha yoga. Hatha yoga postures and breathing exercises promote balance in your body.
As written in our Vedas, this entire universe consists of one universal energy which makes this universe work. This entire universe consists of 84,00,000 species. These 84,00,000 species works with this universal energy . The energy that works in human beings is known as Kundalini Energy, Soul Energy, Spirit Energy or also known as Shakti as written in our Vedas. So, this Kundalini energy is a part of this universal energy.
For eg. Electrical energy is one. The different electrical appliances uses this one electrical energy in different manner according to their work.
This Kundalini energy in human beings internally works in different ways. As we know and also written in our Vedas, this entire human body whether gross or subtle is made of five elements known as Sky, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. The energies corresponding to these five elements are present at different centres in our body known as Chakras as said in Vedas, also known as Energy Centres. These energies are responsible for the working of this physical body.
In this body, we have different energy centres, out of which seven are main, known as chakras, also known as Energy centres. In these seven Chakras, first five chakras correspond to these five elements . These seven chakras are present in the Sushumna nadi also known as Energy Channel along the spinal cord.
Our First Chakra is Mooladhara Chakra, which corresponds to Earth Energy, Here, Kundalini Energy is connected with Earth Energy and is present at the base of spinal cord.
Our Second Chakra is Swadhisthana Chakra, which corresponds to Water Energy, Here Kundalini Energy is connected with Water Energy and is present below navel and above pubic bone.
Third Chakra is Manipura Chakra, where Kundalini energy is connected with fire energy and is present in navel region. Fourth Chakra is Anahata Chakra, here with Air energy it is present in heart region. Fifth Chakra is Vishudha Chakra, where it is connected with air energy in throat region.
In Sixth Chakra Ajna Chakra, it is connected with sixth sense. And in Seventh Chakra Shasrara Chakra, it is connected with Universal energy or Shiva.
This Kundalini energy remains blocked in these chakras, around 70-80% remains blocked. With other 20-30%, human body works. With the help of Kundalini Yog Sadhana, we unblock this energy so that it can rise up. Energy is already present inside but it is sleeping , with the help of sadhana we awaken this energy.
Now, What is Kundalini Yoga? Yog means union. Here, word union implies when this Kundalini Energy unites with Universal Energy. That is when it reaches Sahasrara Chakra, in other words when Shakti connects with Siva, it is union. This is Kundalini Yoga.
Once, Kundalini energy which is present in human beings comes in connection with Universal energy, all of a sudden it attains a great power. The power attained is such that nothing remains impossible for the person in this universe. Then he attains the stage where he says,
चिदानन्दरूपः शिवोऽहम् शिवोऽहम्।
cidānandarūpaḥ śivo'ham śivo'ham.
From his life, permanently all sorrows, grieves, complaints, sadness, negativity, fear etc.. diminishes and he attains peace, bliss in his life forever.

Kundalini Yoga also provides physiological as well as psychological well-known benefits such as increased flexibility, expanded lung capacity, a strong core, and stress alleviation and much more.

When all these energies gets unblocked, we start receiving benefits of each and every energy correspondingly which is infinite in number.
Below are mentioned some more benefits of Kundalini Yoga:
1.Inner Guidance: Kundalini Yoga develops the power of the intuitive mind. When you clean out the subconscious mind and learn to listen through deep meditation, when your thoughts and feelings resonate with the soul, you can sense the guidance of intuition that is always present.
2.Protection from negativity: Kundalini Yoga practice fortifies and expands your electromagnetic field, or aura. It is the energy field that surrounds you, and that alerts you to positive and negative influences in your environment. A weak aura can let in negative influences, and even attract them. A big, strong, bright aura can protect you from negativity and keep you centered in the light of your true identity.
3.Emotional Balance and neutral mind: Kundalini Yoga strengthens the nervous system, balances the glands, purifies the blood, and cleans out subconscious thought patterns. This gives you greater awareness and ability to choose how you respond to your thoughts and feelings. Through practice, you can train your mind and body not to react emotionally—not by repressing emotions, but by developing a buffer zone, a time and space in which to process and make conscious choices about your responses.
Develop the neutral mind, the place where the positive and the negative are evaluated in an instant, and you can act from that state of non-attachment, compassion, and neutrality. Act, don’t react.
4. Deep Relaxation That Heals: Kundalini Yoga practice helps you to becomes physically and mentally relaxed and also teaches you to self-heal yourself with this.
5. Befriend your soul and manifest your destiny: Kundalini Yoga gives you an experience of who you are when the grip of ego is released. It allows the depth of the soul to be felt and known. Begin to access your truth and create a strong connection to your soul and your soul’s work in this lifetime.
Kundalini Yoga is an experience of uniting the finite self with the Infinite. Once you gain this experience, you no longer have the need to look for your security outside of yourself. Your security comes from knowing who you are in relation to the Universe. You know who you are, and you can be you. You can leave the pain of past wounds behind, and manifest your soul’s destiny.
