FAQs

Q1 I have heard that Kundalini Yoga is dangerous and so is raising kundalini and should only be done under strict controlled conditions with a Master of Kundalini present- is this true?
.
 

Anything has the potential to be dangerous if misused. Always follow the instructions carefully, listen to your body, be mindful of any injury, condition or pain you may have, go slow at the beginning, never drink alcohol or take any intoxicants, before during or after a class, do not eat for at least 2 hours before a class, and drink lots of water before, during and after your class.

Raising your Kundalni is perfectly safe through Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, and will do nothing but enrich and enhance your life, but it is best to prepare the body first by cleansing and balancing it – which is exactly what Kundalini yoga does.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IN KUNDALINI YOGA AS TAUGHT BY YOGI BHAJAN, WE DO NOT FORCE THE KUNDALINI ENERGY UP, WE MERELY INVITE IT'S AWAKENING AND RISE, THROUGH THE PRACTICE OF CLEARING AND CLEANSING OUR SYSTEM OF BLOCKAGES AND TOXINS WHICH MAY BE HOLDING US AND OUR ENERGY BACK AND KEEPING US "ASLEEP", AND BALANCING AND STRENGHTENING THE BODY AND MIND. KUNDALINI YOGA IS A SACRED SCIENCE WHICH WHEN PRACRICED OVER TIME WILL ENABLE  SPIRITUAL AWAKENING AND MAKE US LIVE MORE CONSCIOUSLY AND WITH MORE AWARENESS, ALLOWING US TO REACH OUR HIGHEST AND FULLEST POTENITAL. IT IS A PROCESS WHICH GENTLY TRANSFORMS OUR LIVES FOR THE BETTER.

Q2 I have heard that people have the most extraordinary experiences when raising their kundalini and it almost leaves them super human. They have out of body experiences, and develop super human and psychic powers instantaneously- can you do that for me?
.
  There are many different practices designed to wake up and raise Kundalini, indeed sometimes it can happen spontaneously without our practicing anything at all, and every experience is unique to each individual.
Kundalini yoga is designed to gently and slowly wake our  energy up over a period of time, preparing the body and mind, so that when it rises, it is a slow subtle process, which gently transforms our lives, rather than giving us sudden, spontaneous super powers- though this may happen during the process in some cases. It is impossible to predict each person’s own experience, but if practiced properly, the end result will always be positive.
.
Q3 Is Kundalini Yoga a religion?
.
 

No, it is a spiritual and scientific practice. It is linked to Sikh Dharma through the culture and tradition it is from, and it’s philosophies are deeply rooted in traditional Indian Yogic teachings – but it is not a religion and is practiced by people of different religions, traditions, cultures and backgrounds, all over the world. Indeed, I am a Catholic Kundalini Yoga teacher.

Anyone can practice Kundalini yoga. It may be useful if you have some spiritual belief, but even if you don’t you can still enjoy and benefit from the practice.
.

Q4 I’ve seen people practicing Kundalini yoga wearing white clothing and head covers - it seems a bit strange and cult like. Why do you wear white and cover your head?
.
  Students may wear loose comfortable clothing of any colour, or anything they normally practice physical sporting activities in. Ideally, the clothing will be loose as the nadis and meridians will not then be restricted, allowing for maximum free flow of prana - the universal life force or energy. But as teachers we wear loose white clothing to reflect and represent our radiance and aura. The colour of a perfectly balanced aura is white. If you notice in many therapeutic environments, practitioners tend to wear white as it is neutral and soothing, and the colour white represents purity and cleanliness. As teachers we tend to wear natural fibres to absorb the toxins. We cover our heads, and recommend it even for students if they wish to, as during a Kundalini Yoga class, our chakras may be activated and opened, and covering our heads protects our energy and our crown chakra if it is open. This is especially important during meditation.
.
Q5 Why do we need to chant the mantras in Gurmuki - why can’t we chant the mantras in English?
.
  Please read the section on mantra. There are some Kundalini Yoga mantras we chant in English, but they are mainly chanted in Gurmuki because firstly, it is the tradition and culture it comes from- if the practice originated in England then the mantras would probably be mainly in English, and secondly because through using these mantras over a long period of time, it has been found that they have a deeply powerful healing and positive effect.
.
Q6 Do I need to live yogi type of lifestyle to get the most from this practice? For instance, I hear some yoga practices are very strict - do I have to be a vegetarian, or give up drinking alcohol to practice Kundalini yoga?
.
 

Kundalini Yoga is not a dogma, and we do not tell people how to live their lives. We recognise that people have the intelligence to work out for themselves what is good for them or not. We recommend and encourage living a good healthy, stress free way of life which brings us happiness, eating lots of fresh, unprocessed foods which make us feel good, drinking lots of water, and getting a balanced amount of exercise, fresh air, rest, mentally stimulating activity and laughter. But at the end of the day, we are all responsible for ourselves, and our lifestyle choice should be our own, with no judgement from anyone else.

Kundalini Yoga belongs to everyone.
