Kundalini yoga concentrates on the controlled discharge of the serpent power or the Kundalini energy which is located at the base of our spine. It is said to take the form of a snake. As it is awakened, it is then moved from the spine all the way up to the brain, resulting to a magnificent state of euphoria and enlightenment. That's why at present, it is known to be the most competent type of yoga. Its practice includes meditation, the standard chants and poses in yoga, as well as the coordination of one's breath and movement. However, what makes this practice unique is that the stress is given on the breathing and chanting, and not on the poses alone. And its benefits for the yogis? A sense of unity and spiritual conversion. Moreover, it was Yogi Bhajan who presented Kundalini yoga to the west in 1969. It is directed more on Pranayama and Mantra; and the revived Kundalini passes through the centers of counsciousness, or the Seven Chakras, in the human body. Each of these Chakras gives a particular gift and adventure when triggered. For a full understanding of Kundalini yoga and the maneuver of the so-called "snake", you should also have a sufficient education on the nervous system, especially on the spinal cord. It is concluded that the Seven Chakras are located in this particular part of the human body. But how does one start with Kundalini yoga? There are several ways. First, of course, is the preparation, assembly, and exercise of the mind; then one is free to seek the assistance of an expert in the field. Going back to the basics of Pranayama, Mantras, and Asanas can also be a good onset. You can also do it with the practice of Jnana, Bhakta, and Hatha yoga. However, do not forget that it can begin from the simplest steps such as benevolence and mental inquiry. It is not advisable that one should go start with Kundalini yoga with the wrong steps. If one forcefully tries to awaken the Kundalini energy, it will definitely result to dangerous symptoms; because just like the genuine snakes, it strikes hard when provoked. That's why it should be handled in a professional manner. These are just some of the negative when the practice is done the wrong way: -Stress & depression -Irregular breathing -Epilepsy -Mental confusion & immoral behavior


-Headache or a heavy feeling in the head -Psychosis -Intensive mood swings Kundalini yoga does not really require too much effort, since only the basic attitudes are needed commitment, diligence, and determination to the practice. They say it is the mother of all styles of Yoga. Some yogis also consider it to be the most powerful type of yoga they ever got into. True enough, it brings paramount and worthy effects, but they can also be brutal when not delivered properly.
