The practice of kundalini yoga is aimed at emptying, purifying, filling and unveiling the inner light through very specific breath control techniques, movements and exercises aimed at activating certain energy meridians and points, and meditative techniques to empower your inner being to shine through your every pore. Through these teachings you can gain control and direction of your mind and thus your entire life and destiny. In this practice we create an experience of our expanded self, the type of experience that allows us to feel more interconnected with all of creation.

Kriyas are sets of yogic exercises that stimulate and harmonize the glandular system of our bodies. Every chakra has a correlating gland, and by balancing these glands and their natural patterns of hormonal secretion we are able to tap into the internal chemistry of our bodies. There are thousands of kriyas that can be practiced, some are vigorous and some are meditative and the exercises range from repetitions of movements, chanting of sacred sounds, breathing techniques and complete relaxation.
Breath is the most precious tool in our lives, through breath we can connect from deep within our intimate being to the external environment. We can live simply surviving on the short, erratic and shallow breaths characteristic of this day and age, affected by stress, posture, emotions, memories and experiences. Or we can choose to breathe consciously. When we give awareness to our breath, connect to the depth of our soul and break through the habitual patterns, we take charge of our entire being. In essence, if we let the external stressors take command of the breath, we allow ourselves to be hijacked and manipulated by the external environment. When we take charge of our breath, we take charge of ourselves, our emotions, and our own mind, this is true freedom. There are many pranayams in kundalini yoga that do just that, help us break out of our habitual breath and into a deeper connection with our soul through liberated breath.
Mantra meditation is incredibly useful for focusing the mind and steadying the concentration. Our mind is almost always focused on external objects; rarely, if ever, does it focus the attention inward. An important tool to turn the untrained mind inwards is mantra sadhana. This is a profound discipline which employs the science of sound vibrations in order to bring body and mind in harmony with each other, and to cultivate balance and stillness. Sound, vibration and prayer have long been known to have a deep and transformative effect on the body and mind and throughout the ages, different spiritual traditions from all over the world have used this science of sound to train, focus and cleanse the processes of the mind.
Meditating with mantra brings us into the healing sound current that permeates all of creation. The essence of infinite wisdom resides in sound, and it is capable of transforming, cleansing, shifting and aligning us wether we chant mentally, outloud or whisper. Mantra science dates back thousands of years, and some mantras have been known to have been received or discovered in the subtle realms by yogis who practiced meditation dilligently.
These sacred sounds have been chanted by practitioners, devotees, monks and nuns, gurus or sadhus for thousands of years and carry a very special essence. By pronouncing these sounds, we awaken the energy held within every syllable that is spoken and immediately we can receive the blessing of its sound.
