Science Behind Kundalini Yoga

Based on intricate knowledge of where organs lie in the body as well as meridians, glands, as well as chakras and subtle energy flows, Yoga has developed techniques which through movement, postures and breath techniques stimulate these organs and meridians in very specific ways, in the manner acupuncture (& beyond) does. Sometimes it works from the inside out and sometimes from the outside in. This allows us to take control of our health and be our own healers.

Over the thousands of years in which Kundalini Yoga has been around, a vast body of knowledge has been compiled based on observation and experimentation, as well as anecdotal evidence, based on direct experience of the benefits of the specific techniques of Kundalini Yoga.
Kundalini Yoga is known as the Yoga of Awareness because it helps a person cultivate the sensitivity and understanding to broaden the scope of their perceptions.

Many scientific studies have been done in the last 40 years on the health benefits of yoga and meditation. These all seem to verify the traditional claims for these techniques.
In addition, in our combined 40 years of teaching and practicing Kundalini Yoga we have verified, through our own experience, all the claims we make regarding the benefits of Kundalini Yoga.

As you progress in your yoga practice, you will begin to make obvious associations between the techniques and the systems they are working on. In this way, every practitioner becomes a scientist in their own right using their own body and mind as a laboratory.
