Yoga practices are based on an awakening of the divine awareness within our own beings. When this inner divinity is awakened and respected, that sense of respect radiates outward from the core of our beings to everything that we think and do. An egotistical Yoga teacher, who disrespects a student’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual capacities and challenges, is disrespecting the student at a very deep level and putting him or her at risk of harm during the class.
Kundalini Yoga is an ancient practice that originated in India. It is a tantric branch of Yogic methodology and is known by its practitioners as the mother of all Yoga practices. Practitioners of all levels are welcome in a Kundalini class. A Kundalini class usually begins with a dedication or intention for your practice and the singing of sacred mantras and scriptural verses. A typical class will be comprised of a balanced set of yogic techniques that include physical postures, breathing exercises, chanting and specific meditation practices.
