Kundalini Yoga is a transformational science of body postures (asanas) strung together in Yoga sets called Kriyas. Along with special breathing techniques (pranayama), meditations and hand positions (mudras) it allows for complete physical, mental, emotional and spiritual unfoldment and integration.
Kundalini Yoga came to the United States via Yogi Bhajan.
There are seven primary chakras, or energy centers sometimes called wheels, that flow through the human body along the spinal cord. The chakra energy system lies within more than just the physical state of being. Each charka is correlated with different aspects of our lives.
- 1st Chakra- Muladhara- root
- 2nd Chakra- Svadhisthana- sacral
- 3rd Chakra- Manipura- power
- 4th Chakra- Anahata- love
- 5th Chakra- Vishuddha- communication
- 6th Chakra- Ajna- intuition (third eye)
- 7th Chakra Sahasrara- divine
By learning to understand and work with our chakras to bring them into balance we are able to excel at all things and lead a joyful life. Kundalini Yoga provides scientific approach to exercizing your chakras so that they may become balanced. By focusing on the areas within your life that need the most attention, this system is able to allow you to remove blockages so that you may express yourself to the highest potential.
Each Chakras has a primary color of expression and is associated with specific glands in the endocryne system. It is via kundalini yoga that one is able to work with these glands and energies in a controlled manner.

Krishan Singh Background
Krishan Singh began hisÂ yoga practice back in 2004. At that time inÂ his life something was missing, something more than the usual speed of life.Â A hole hadÂ manifested as a phisical ailment and forced him to go into the hospital for stomach testing. Nothing was medically wrong with him. What was wrong wasÂ his connection to that greater Source of purpose and understanding. For some time he thought,
“Hershel, (His birth name,)Â there is no way you can see yourself lifting weights through your 80′s, maybe you should try Yoga”
Then while visiting withÂ his friends Jason and SarahÂ he was fortunate enough for Sarah to provide a Reiki healing session on him. It turns outÂ he had a blockage of energy inÂ his 5th chakra,Â the center of communication which relates to the ethers. Through the reiki session a miraculous event occured. When Sarah located the stuck energy, she concentrated really hard…
All of the sudden an emense wave of energy, kundalini, shot up from the base ofÂ his spine and out throughÂ his throat center. It was an experienceÂ he shall never forget. He thought,
“Perhaps I should learn more about these things called Chakras”
InÂ his studies heÂ actually found a Yoga that focused on the Chakras, Kundalini Yoga. Soon he would find Kundalini Yoga focuses on much more than just chakras.Â It was divine free will at its greatest. Since thenÂ he practices kundalini yoga nearly every day.
HisÂ first instructor was Courtney Ofetdahl. In timeÂ he began to realize thatÂ he could help fulfillÂ his soul purpose by helping others to find their path through Kundalini Yoga, for his is the path of the Teacher. And soÂ he worked with Courtenay’s instructor, Lisa Lawrence in an apprentiship role.Â Lisa received her yoga instruction through Ravi Singh.
AsÂ he openedÂ his being to the subtle, he heard the call spiritual teacher, Esther Turner.Â Esther initiatedÂ him in Reiki healing, as well as guided him and others through a Light Body meditation course.Â The light body course blazed the path to bring me in touch with my Soul.Â Since taking the course, Soul contact occurs regularly inÂ his life andÂ he hasÂ been working to blend his ego with the soul.
In 2007 Hershel received his Spiritual Name, Krishan Singh, which means one who performs his dutiesÂ in devotional service as praiseÂ of God.Â HeÂ soon realized he required deeper training and instruction in Kundalini Yoga.Â So he began Kundalini Yoga Teacher training, asÂ taught by YogiÂ BhajanÂ at Spirit Rising Yoga in Chicago from Shiva Singh and Shabad Kaur.Â In 2008 Krishan recieved a level 1 KRI TeacherÂ Certification.
Krishan states, “I amÂ fortunate to have come to Yoga and to be surrounded with such brilliant lights upon the planet. As I continue my studies in Yoga and in the Charkras, those seven centers of energy I will share my experiences so thatÂ others may gain the benefits that Kundalini Yoga and this educationÂ has provided me.”
