Kundalini Yoga is an ancient and synergistic form of yoga practiced for centuries in India and the East. It incorporates the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga into a cohesive and integrated system.
Much of Kundalini Yoga was kept secret until Yogi Bhajan first came to America to teach it in 1968 and founded the 3HO Foundation. Kundalini Yoga is dynamic in its’ practice, vast in practical information and powerful in its experience. It is practical for the average person because it works to release tension and energize in a short period of time, regardless of the degree of flexibility or experience. It is perfect for people who want both the immediate and long-term benefits of yoga and a relaxed and uplifting experience of consciousness.

[People] of great knowledge actually found out about the chakras – their workings, their petals, their sounds, their infinity, their co-relationship, their powers. They found that the life of a human is totally based on these chakras. This total science gave birth to Kundalini Yoga." - Yogi Bhajan
