Even though we can start every day with the intention to make a stronger commitment to our soul’s purpose, the approach of a New Year feels like the most opportune time to do so. For one, this is a time when people around the world are making new decisions about their life. Linking up with that group intention of renewal is very powerful. What are you intending to change, grow with, or evolve towards this New Year? What is a great Kundalini Yoga idea that I am going to either add, or continue to incorporate, into my life this year. For example chant like there’s no tomorrow! ☺ Whether you are a timid singer or a pro, start the year off singing and don’t stop. Your soul wants to hear YOUR voice!!!

The heart center is the most important of our spiritual centers. It is one of the two centers which are in direct contact with the higher self and through which soul energy and other higher energies enter our being. The second entrance is the head center, which is located in almost the exact center of the head in the vicinity of the pineal gland.The heart center is also the center of unconditional love. At this level the feelings of universal brotherhood and tolerance begin to develop and all beings are accepted and loved for what they are. The heart center is also the point of balance in the human body where spirituality takes one higher and deeper. Most people die of broken hearts or spiritual starvation. A connection to the God of one's heart is crucial. Everybody must get in toch with their real hearts and discover what they really want to do in life, and do it!

Summer Solstice is like a Kundalini yoga village that is set up outside of Espanola, New Mexico. The event got 5 main pillars: Kundalini Yoga, White Tantric Yoga (3 days!), Sadhana (daily morning spiritual practice with live music), Seva (selfless service) and Community. It's hard to say what was my favorite experience. They are all very special and wonderful! And just walking around the camp is a wonderful feeling. It feels like being in another dimension. It's one of those experiences that can't be explained - just go! The all-camp meditation (done in the morning) this year was the Compassion Meditation and the world can certainly use more of that! The meditation is based on the Fourth Sutra of the Aquarian Age, given by Yogi Bhajan, "Understand through compassion or you will misunderstand the times".

In the Kundalini Yoga tradition, the electromagnetic field that surrounds the human being is recognized as a chakra. Once we begin to integrate all our chakras, the aura fully radiates to protect and project us. Kundalini Yoga thoroughly works to bring balance and strength to our entire system of energetic highways as well as the aura. It is with the aura that we can embody the great human skill of radiance. A strong aura automatically uplifts and improves the workings of all the other chakras. We can use a variety of Kundalini Yoga techniques to easily increase the expansiveness of our eight chakra. Our aura provides protection against disease and negative environmental influences while also projecting our true nature into the world. With a powerful eight chakra we automatically filter negative influences and feel strong, healthy, vibrant. When the aura is weak, we seem vulnerable to everything around us like germs, attitudes, emotions and we feel sickly, shrunken, dim. Anytime feelings of disconnect surface, try different Kundalini Yoga excercises to increase the auric field!

New Years Eve is a great time to consciously celebrate an end and a beginning. Kundalini Yoga is a great place to celebrate the completion of 2015. And also to give your soul a gift to celebrate New Year's Day with Kundalini Yoga.
Even though we can start every day with the intention to make a stronger commitment to our soul's purpose, the approach of a New Year feels like the most opportune time to do so. For one, this is a time when people around the world are making new decisions about their life. Linking up with that group intention of renewal is very powerful
What are you intending to change, grow with, or evolve towards this New Year?
One of the Kundalini Yoga ideas that I am going to either add, or continue to incorporate, into my life this year:
Chant Like There's No Tomorrow!
Most of us will be working on refining the way we communicate with the world, and, hopefully, teaching many people how to uplift themselves. There is no better way to accomplish all of this than by sharing mantra and yoga music. So start the year off singing and don't stop. Your soul wants to hear YOUR voice!

Kundalini Yoga has its own music genre, sometimes called Western Gurbani. Gurbani means "sacred language based on the power of the sound current", and is the term used to refer to the words of the Sikh gurus. When Yogi Bhajan took these teachings to California in 1969, a fusion of Western-style music and Gurbani emerged, and this is what you'll hear in kundalini yoga classes today - where you might chant along with it, use it to set a pace or rythm for a particular movement or breath pattern, or just listen to it during relaxation periods.

Yoga has dozens of variations in philosophy and style. Some yogas (like Bikram) are structured as a physical workout. Others put an emphasis on meditation. Kundalini Yoga is a little of both, but with an added emphasis on consciousness that activates energy centers througout the body. Kundalini Classes can be a good workout, but it's teachers and students participate in each kriya (a series of postures, breath, and sound that work toward a specific outcome) with a quiet reverence more akin to a temple than a gym. If you like your physical exercise to come with a side of spiritual enlightment, Kundalini Yoga might be for you!

In a nutshell, Kundalini Yoga is a system of physical and mental technics designed to elevate individual consciousness to recognize our oneness with all that is. Methods employed to do this are kriyas (physical sets systematically designed for specific aims), chants (all kundalinis chant), meditation and pranayama (control of prana, or life force, through the breath).
Please join the Kundalini Yoga Class coming Thursday 22 Oct! 19:30-21:00 hrs.
