It is a metaphor, a poetic way of describing the flow of energy and consciousness that already exists within each one of us. These practices enable us to merge with, or “yoke” with, the universal Self. This merging of individual consciousnesswith universal consciousness creates a “divine union” called “yoga.” “of the Self”.Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness, consists of simple yogic techniques that can be enjoyed by everyone, no matter his or her age or physical ability. It is a complete science that includes breath (pranayam), yoga postures (asanas), sound, chanting (mantra) and meditation. It is designed to provide you with the experience of your highest consciousness through the raising of your Kundalini.
