Series: Awakening Yoga & Meditation with Ashley Aiken-Redon | Episode: 1 | Runtime: 15m 27s | Release date: 2015

This segment features: Ashley Aiken-Redon, James Colquhoun.

The Awakening Series is a gentle introduction to the powerful and deeply transformative teachings of Kundalini Yoga, known as the yoga of awareness.

Long shrouded in secrecy in India, reserved for an elite few, Kundalini Yoga Master, Yogi Bhajan broke with this tradition in 1969 when he brought this powerful, sacred technology to the West, making the wealth of these teachings available to all. Kundalini Yoga is often considered the most comprehensive yogic tradition, consciously combining physical postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayam), meditation, mantra (sound current), hand positions (mudra), eye-focus (dhrist), body locks (bandhas) and relaxation. It is a Raj Yoga, encompassing the eight limbs of yoga into a singular practice of excellence and ecstasy. "Kundalini" literally means "the curl of the lock of hair of the beloved." This poetic metaphor alludes to the flow of energy and consciousness that exists within each of us and enables us to merge with the universal Self, fusing individual and universal consciousness to create a divine union called "yoga."

Benefits of Kundalini Yoga:

The benefits of Kundalini Yoga are manifold. Dynamic asanas strengthen and balance the muscular, glandular, circulatory and nervous systems. Pranayam expands lung capacity and purifies the blood. Meditation and mantra develop mastery over the mind, allowing us to better manage our emotions and experiences, leading ultimately to liberation from ego and experience our own infinity.

Essentially, Kundalini Yoga helps you to achieve a state of harmony between body, mind and spirit that genuinely facilitates:

  • Developing a strong and reliable sense of intuition
  • Accrued inner strength and serenity during times of distress, allowing us to cope with the pressures of everyday life calmly and with greater mental clarity
  • Learning to master our minds and emotions, enabling us to act with grace rather than simply react on impulse
  • Increased vital energy and improved flow and management of this energy
  • Slowing down and rushing less, feeling more balanced and relaxed
  • The development of deeper, more meaningful relationships
  • The capacity to give love and the aptitude to receive it
  • Looking and feeling younger, more vibrant and alive
  • Feeling more energetic, creative and with a deep sense of inner-peace
  • Positive, self-empowering ways of thinking to fulfill our highest potential
  • An overall sense of optimism and "joie de vivre."

I don't quite know why the 15 minute Sadhana isn´t in this list (I'm sure there's a reason for that), but I'd really like to recommend it. https://www.fmtv.com/watch/15-minute-morning-sadhana The way Ashley guides us is super clear. I ended up doing itl with my eyes closed and every time I opened to check I was "following' it fine.
