Gonna start reading because I will be starting a 6 week Kundalini course. My favorite kind of Yoga Other yoga practices feel like they emphasize the physical first, and then comes the spiritual. But whatever path fits, they all produce results. Just have to find the one that fits your personality.
Sep 14, Melanie rated it really liked it. Beautiful interactive exploration of the spiritual aspect of Kundalini Yoga.
If acted upon, can take the practitioner to the point of being ready for more advanced exploration with a guru. Sep 29, Cherie rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction , yoga , spirituality. A very thorough if not, a bit, as my friend Ally would say "woo woo" look at kundalini yoga, the chakra system, and a deeper way of living. Neat meditation activities.

The practices you learn at the Ashram will help guide you to your own inner wisdom.
Eight of our main practices are detailed here. All of our courses, retreats and programs include a combination of these main yoga practices, plus self-study and group work. Individual courses are outlined in our Course Calendar. This means doing the work that needs to be done simply because it needs to be done, putting high quality into your efforts and expecting nothing in return.
Karma Yoga is a powerful practice for liberation, transforming attachments and attitudes, a way to deepen your understanding about yourself and others. Using the yoga of action, we can take the theoretical learnings of yoga and test them out in our daily lives. It is the spirit with which we approach our work that transforms our actions into the practice of Karma Yoga.
Karma Yoga is marked by willingness, care, consideration and cooperation. By spiritualizing our work, we can lift any task from the menial to the meaningful. It is an intrinsic facet on our path of spiritual development and a tool for self-reflection. We always have our notebooks nearby, to capture a moment of insight, or delve deeply into a question that arises.
Our journals can become storehouses of knowledge. Writing down your experiences helps you train the mind to concentrate and observe, and it creates a record of your own personal wisdom.
It is an important yogic tool in our tradition, a tool to access the inner self and inner learning. It is a gentle and meditative style of Hatha that respects the body as a spiritual tool. Hidden Language starts with the very personal — your observations, your mind, your body, your relationship to the world. Swami Radha has presented clear directions for exercises and practices.
