Welcome to the Yoga Journal Kundalini Yoga Directory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Kundalini Yoga into their practice and philosophy.
Kundalini Yoga has its roots in the Tantric Yoga tradition, which dates back to the eighth century. In 1969, Sikh leader Yogi Bhajan (born in 1929) brought the practice to North America. Kundalini Yoga’s objective is to awaken a persons full human potential. It helps to build physical vitality and increase consciousness. A class usually incorporates movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras, such as Sat nam ("I am truth"). Using sound, breath, and posture, Kundalini Yoga aims to develop spiritual awareness by freeing the Kundalini that is coiled in the base of the spine. These practices draw the Kundalini upward through the seven chakras for awakening and healing. It is an uplifting blend of spiritual and physical practices.

My yoga journey started many moons ago when my Mom suggested my sister and I take a class. I don't remember much about the class itself, but I do recall speaking enthusiastically about it afterward. I also remember the smell of the satsuma oil that was burned throughout the class, and the various intrigues of my teacher that day, who wore endless strings of beads around her neck and had glittery, bright eyes and really wild curly hair. Most strikingly, I felt calm.
