Yogi Bhajan

Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga arrived in the United States in 1969 with a stated purpose: “I have come to create Teachers, not to gather disciples.” He then founded 3HO - the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization, based on his first principle: “Happiness is your Birthright.” Over the years, Yogi Bhajan traveled the world teaching Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness, to hundreds of thousands of people. In 1994, he founded the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association (IKYTA.org), which works to spread these priceless teachings worldwide.

What is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is probably the most formalized style of yoga currently taught throughout the world. In any class, anywhere in the world, you can expect it to include six major components: 1) tuning-in with the Adi Mantra, 2) pranayam or warm-up, 3) kriya, 4) relaxation, 5) meditation and 6) close with the blessing song, “May the Long Time Sun Shine Upon You.”

Kriyas are complete sets of exercises that are performed in the sequences given by the Master, Yogi Bhajan. They can be simple short sequences or they may involve vigorous, even strenuous exercises, and strong breath techniques such as Breath of Fire, which challenge and strengthen the nervous and endocrine systems and test the will of the practitioner beyond the limitations of their ego.

The typical class is 60-90 minutes: 5-10 minute warm-up, 30-45 minute kriya, 5-15 minute layout, 11-31 minutes of meditation.
