What Is Kundinyasa?
Kundinyasa is a revolutionary style of yoga that fuses the very powerful practice of Kundalini Kriya Yoga from the lineage of Yogi Bhajan and Ashtanga Vinyasa sequencing from the lineage of Krishnamacharya. The Vinyasa element focuses more on body alignment and sequencing in addition to stretching and strengthening the body preparing it to handle the higher frequencies of energy cultivated through the Kundalini Yoga Kriyas. The Kundalini practice focuses on moving energy through the physical and subtle bodies through repetitive movements with pranayama (breath work) and mantra (sound frequency).
It develops tremendous endurance and inner strength. Blending the two styles is a powerful way to incorporate the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga all in one practice. They are a perfect balance of physical effort and deep spiritual experience facilitated by breath work, mantra, meditation and often incorporates the primordial vibration of planetary Gongs during sivasana.
