Introduction to Kundalini Yoga by Jenny
In this Introduction to Kundalini Yoga video, Rebel Human Co-Founder, Jenny Arrington, introduces the history, culture, science, and practice of Kundalini Yoga. Kundalini Yoga is an advanced practice that includes the use of repetitive movements, powerful breathwork, and the chanting of sacred mantra. Classes in this lineage of yoga are more difficult to find, especially in the US, because this lineage of yoga was taught in secret for centuries and because training to become a Kundalini Yoga teacher is a longer and more involved process compared to other yoga teacher training programs. Kundalini Yoga is not for everyone. It’s repetitive rather than flowy and because of the repetitive movements and oftentimes intense breathwork, it looks a bit "odd." Getting over that initial discomfort could be one of your best decisions because this practice is incredibly powerful at building resilience, equanimity, and a sense of connection to something greater than yourself. Our students report that it’s life changing.
Beginning Kundalini Yoga - Class One
Digesting Your Life Level: Beginner Kriya: Prana and Apana Balance Meditation: Kirtan Kriya This is a good class to start with if you are new to Kundalini Yoga. We often hold on to old stuff, old stories, and pain, having a hard time knowing how to release it. This class helps us get better at knowing what to bring in and what can be released. We get better at distinguishing what is nourishing and what is depleting, just like the small intestines bring in nutrients and the large intestines getting rid of waste. The meditation taught in this class has been studied extensively and proven highly effective at treating alzheimers, depression, and addiction. Addictions are attachments, things we can’t let go. This meditation helps us further shift our wiring so that we can make change in our lives. Live: 04.08.20
Beginning Kundalini Yoga - Class Two
Tap Into Your Inner Fire Level: Beginner Kriya: Surya Kriya Meditation: Seven Wave Sat Nam This is a good class if you are new to Kundalini Yoga. In the Yoga Sutras, Tapas is our inner fire that burns off impurities and blocks while moving us toward our goals. It transforms anger into power so we can channel that energy towards change.
