The postures practiced in Kundalini Yoga are similar to those practiced in classical
hatha yoga, however they differ in the sequencing of the postures and are more often
mixed with pranayama (breathing) and mantra recitation. We have created this directory
of the most common asanas in an attempt to provide images and instruction on how
these postures should be practiced for maximum benefit and health.
This category includes all postures practiced on the floor. This ranges from simple
beginners yoga postures to much more advanced yoga postures and includes seated
postures, twists, core strengthening postures, backbends, forward bends, arm balancing
One defining element of yoga is the intermixing of relaxation with the postures.
It is said that if you wish to judge your yoga practice, judge it by your ability
to find stillness after the postures. Kundalini Yoga has a strong emphasis on relaxation.
Explore those postures here.
Proper breathing can regulate emotions, bring mental clarity and improve health.
There are various techniques that assist in meditation and improve yoga practice.
Mudras are symbolic hand gestures that stimulate the brain and are often used in
meditation. The hands have many meridians and pressure points that can be activated
through mudra to heal the body and elevate the mind.
Kundalini yoga meditations incorporate mantras, mudras, breath, eye focus and posture.
Our collection of meditations also includes links to the music used to accompany
the meditations, a great tool for students and teachers.
Bandhas are roughly translated as locks in the body. There are three different locks.
Using these locks, the energy of the body can be controled and circulated. This
is often used as closure for a posture or kriya.
Standing postures generally improve balance, flexibility and include many advanced
yoga postures. These are some of the best ways to raise the heart rate and are often
aerobic and more challenging yoga postures.
Inversion yoga postures are great for building balance, spinal strength and relaxing
the brain. Inversions can increase flexibility, strength and strengthen the nervous
system. Most people spend so much of their day focused on their head and brain and
the heart pumps upward all day long. Inversions are a great way give your heart
a rest and let the blood flow to your brain along with gravity.
