Taught for thousands of years–and revealed to the West in recent decades by the master Yogi Bhajan–Kundalini Yoga is suprisingly simple to learn. And practiced regularly, it can strengthen the nervous system, balance the glandular system, and harness the energy of the mind and emotion as well as the body. While general yoga technique focuses on exercise postures and breathing, Kundalini takes yoga concepts a step further by integrating them into everyday life activities. This definitive guide, fully illustrated with photographs, is an accessible introduction to this ancient practice, with information on poses and positions, diet and lifestyle, breathing and stretching techniques, chanting and meditation exercises, and general guidelines that can help anyone–beginner or advanced–gain the greatest benefit from yogic practice.
Kundalini Yoga: A Simple Guide to the Yoga of Awareness is an introduction to living your life with more awareness and spirituality, as well as a guide to the principles of this form of yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, the author’s teacher. Kundalini yoga includes habits and practices that “balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, and enable us to harness the energy of the mind and the emotions,” explains the author. She clearly explains many facets of this kundalini lifestyle: breathing (including breathing exercises), spirituality, food choices and preparation, chants and meditations, the chakras (energy centers in the body), self-healing, sleep, communication, and using yoga postures for health.
This is not an exercise book of yoga postures–although several are illustrated–but a guidebook toward a more spiritual path. “Spirituality cannot be taught. It has to be caught, you have to get it from someone who’s got it.” The book describes the path to a more spiritual life using kundalini yoga philosophy and practice. You don’t have to move to a cave to adopt these practices–the author shows you how you can use them to balance even a busy, modern lifestyle. – Joan Price
