Getting Started with Kundalini Yoga

Starting place for a Kundalini Yoga Practice

I was showing a coworker of mine this great new website I have and he got back to me on it and said:

“Hey man, I am interested in Kundalini Yoga. Can we chat about it sometime?”

I was soo excited that my website had already made an impact inspiring another to try Kundalini. I chatted with him and followed up with the following bits of info.

Getting Started with Kundalini Yoga

  1. Set a time for yoga, torns pop up all the time, I tend to suggest waking a little earlier to start your day off on the right foot
  2. Buy a Yoga DVD for some expert guidance, I suggest A Journey through the Chakras, okay Ravi Singh, suggested this one to me on the phone one day, but its a great suggestion
  3. Find a Kundalini Yoga instructor near you, here is a great Kundalini Yoga Directory
  4. Purchase a Yoga book, I suggest the Kundalini Yoga Experience, its got great background info on the chakra system, Numerology, the tools of Kundalini Yoga and Kriyas that focus on specific chakras for balancing
  5. Set your intention to integrate Kundalini Yoga into your busy schedule
  6. Get Started and keep it up!

There are plenty of other things to do, but this is a great starting point.

I am fortunate enough to have carved out an entire room dedicated to spiritual practice. But you can make due with just some floor space, a yoga mat and some motivating music.

Comments on getting started are most welcome :-)

    Sat Nam Hersh,

    Sounds great! Snatam Kaur is a favorite of mine and Siri Datta’s book “Open Your Heart With Kundalini Yoga” is my favorite yoga book, though I am partial to my own, “Be the Lighthouse!” (hehehe)

    Taking classes from an IKYTA certified teacher is very important when starting and of course, keep up!

    Peace and blessings,

    Steve Coffing
