The Sanskrit word kundal means “circular.” And it can be a noun for a coiled snake. The feminine kundalī means a ring, bracelet, or coil of rope. This concept was adopted as kundalinī into Hatha yoga in the 15th century and, by the 16th century, was used in the Yoga Upanishads.
“IS THAT A SNAKE IN YOUR SPINE OR ARE YOU JUST GLAD TO SEE ME?” ~ Gaia Network
To understand how Kundalini works you first have to understand that you have a snake in your spine. The practice of Kundalini Yoga is supposed to arouse the sleeping Kundalini Shakti from its coiled base through the six chakras that reside along the spine, and through the seventh chakra, or crown. Chakras are wheels, or hubs of energy, along which energy or prana, travels like a superhighway to distribute energy throughout the body. The practice of Kundalini move and breathes a greater measure of life force into these ‘hubs’ which inherently inspires the Kundalini energy up and through the spine. The experience is electric and transformative.
Ara Lyman will be guiding a Kundalini practice that will take you through a series of ‘kriyas’ intended to strengthen and purify both the nervous system and circulatory system. On a energetic level, creates a more balanced and radiant subtle body.
To enhance the practice further we are inviting Bījāa, our own beloved kirtan musicians, to enhance and deepen the experience through live music. The music will be acoustic, sacred chants specific to support the integration and attunement of the Kundalini practice.
