One response to “Does Kundalini Yoga Cause you Discomfort? That’s Not a Bad Thing!”

    Great article and I couldn’t agree more. Kundalini Yoga often pushed me too the edge and I often feel… worse after yoga sessions, emotionally I mean. I think it’s because KY really confronts you with your darker stuff and that’s very uncomfortable. I remember an interview with Maya Fiennes in which she explained that her husband often told her at the beginning of her yoga journey to stop doing KY, because it (seemed to) increased her negative stuff… guess we all have to work through our shadows! Thanks for the read!
