Kundalini Yoga is a practical, inspirational guide suitable for all abilities, from the complete beginner to the experienced yoga practitioner. Represented by the image of the coiled snake, kundalini is the cosmic energy which lies dormant within everyone. Kundalini yoga aims to release this flow of energy, using ancient yogic systems of exercise, breathing and meditation. Following a general introduction to Kundalini yoga, Part 1 gives illustrated step-by-step instructions on breathing, exercises, meditations and other techniques, guiding you through the main elements of a typical Kundalini class. Part 2 offers a numerology exercise which will enable you to calculate your personal yogic number profile; this in turn will point you to a series of short meditations which will help you deal with life's challenges and fulfill your creative potential. Part 3 focuses on the chakras with a questionnaire to help you evaluate which of your chakras need rebalancing and identify the appropriate practices for each. There is also a glossary, tips on personal preparation for yoga, a bibliography, and lists of resources and contacts.
