About Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is one of the major systems of yoga practiced today, incorporating the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga into a cohesive and integrated system to elevate the individual consciousness, cultivate group consciousness and serve Universal consciousness.

Kundalini Yoga was introduced to the West by Yogi Bhajan in 1969, and today you can find a Kundalini Yoga class in most countries around the world. Kundalini Yoga uses kriya, asana, breath, mantra, meditation and lifestyle disciplines to awaken the You within you.

Yogi Bhajan (1929-2004) established the Kundalini Research Institute in 1972, which maintains the integrity of his teachings and licenses Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training around the globe. The Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings now contains more than 6,000 lectures, yoga classes and intensive trainings on audio and video tape.

“Now is the time for you to become what you were meant to be:
