kundalini yoga classes

At triyoga we offer nearly 20 Kundalini yoga classes each week, taught by some of the UK’s leading teachers. Yogi Bhajan bought the technology of Kundalini yoga to the West in 1969. It features pranayama (breath work), mudras (hand gestures), asana (posture) and always meditation. Experiencing a profound sense of personal transformation is not uncommon. Some students wear white to absorb energy and light but you can come wearing whatever you want.

What is Kundalini yoga?

Kundalini yoga combines asana, pranayama, music, mantra and meditation, which can lead to a profound sense of personal transformation. Yoga Bajan first introduced Kundalini yoga from India to the West in 1969 and it quickly grew in popularity, with teachers developing a variety of different styles to communicate the science behind the system.

What can I expect in a Kundalini yoga class?

In class, you’ll practise what’s called “kriyas”, which are cleansing techniques. These might be strong repetitive arm movements, breathwork and hand gestures. By using physical and mental strength to maintain these repetitive actions, you can start to overcome your mind’s desire to stop. The practice helps you gain the awareness and power you need to resist the temptation to fall back into bad habits and to help calm the mind. The aim is to burn off karma (past decisions), increase vitality and help heal.

While this isn’t a dynamic class in the same way as a Vinyasa Flow or Ashtanga class, it can be challenging. Generally, you won’t flow through a sequence but the postures can be strong.

There’s also a strong community aspect to Kundalini yoga, with students and teachers often connecting both inside and outside the studio.

What are the benefits of Kundalini yoga?

Through a blend of asana, pranayama, music, mantra, and meditation, Kundalini yoga helps to strengthen intuition and willpower, as well as activate and rebalance the nervous and glandular systems. The practice is great for building stamina, strengthening the body and increasing lung capacity.

Yogi Bhajan was interested in helping people break unwanted habits and addictions. For this reason, a lot of students in recovery find this a powerful and transformative practice.#

class levels

what do the class levels mean?

Classes are divided into styles of yoga, but also levels. Check with your teacher before moving up a level and always inform your teacher if you are pregnant or have any injuries.

open level

Open to all levels from beginners to more experienced. The teacher adapts the class according to the students.

level 1

Open to complete beginners, those in the initial stages of yoga practice or those seeking a gentler asana practice. You will learn the fundamentals of yoga.

level 1-2

Builds on the foundational blocks that are established in a Level 1 class. A working knowledge of yoga principles is expected.

level 2

Works on deeper physical and psychological level. Introduces more sophisticated practices that may include more challenging postures (inversions, deeper backbends) as well as pranayama, mudra and meditation. Not suitable for beginners.

level 2-3

Teaches more difficult postures and breathing techniques. Assumes an understanding of the gross as well as subtle aspects of practice.

level 3

A challenging class for the experienced student who possesses deep awareness on both a physical and mental level. Definitely not for the faint-hearted.
