What is Kundalini yoga? This mystical style of yoga was brought to the west in the 1960s by Yogi Bhajan who founded the Healthy, Happy and Holy Organisation. Chanting and 'Kriyas' are used with the aim of cleansing the mind and body. The Kriyas are positions that are held for several minutes while a strong breathing technique is practiced.
What are the benefits? "The thinking behind this approach is that your 'Kundalini' (powerful energy from the base of your spine) will be released to work its way through the chakras, ultimately bringing you joy and enlightenment," Sally says. "Kundalini is not for those who simply want a physical work out. As with all yoga, it is useful to attend Kundalini with and open heart and mind."
