Yogi Bhajan brought Kundalini Yoga to the West in 1968. He was a Master of Yoga from the age of 16. The elite castes in India at the time kept this practice for themselves, knowing how powerful and transformational it was. Yogi Bhajan was guided by a higher purpose and moved to Canada then America to share the teachings. He developed the 3HO website (Happy Healthy Holy). Since then Kundalini Yoga has flourished helping to heal people all over the world.
Yoga means union, its developed from the sanskrit word ‘yoke’ as our purpose within this spiritual practice is to merge our consciousness with that of the divine. We want to feel the divinity within us, connected to our creator.
The benefits of Kundalini Yoga are:

In my 20’s I was so disillusioned with life, it felt mundane, I knew there was more, I felt the divine calling, but I didnt know the language. Struggling with stress, I embarked on a spiritual quest knowing that it would help me, but not knowing how.
I tried various forms of yoga, meditation, self help books, Reiki, crystells…you name it I tried it. But it did’nt hit the spot, I was’nt fulfilled, it did’nt bring the deep healing I was seeking. Until I stumbled across a Kundalini Yoga Class in Italy, and it rocked my world! Through developing a regular practice, all of the supressed emotions and trauma from the past was released, helping me to travel lighter and live a more peaceful life. I vowed to share Kundalini Yoga in the Northeast, cos we all need it!
