“The primary objective [of Kundalini] is to awaken the full potential of human awareness in each individual; that is, Recognize our awareness, Refine that awareness, Expand that awareness to our unlimited Self…Clear any inner duality, Create the power to deeply listen, Cultivate inner stillness, and Prosper and Deliver excellence in all that we do.”
What is Yoga and its goals?
Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj, meaning “to yoke,” or “to unite”. The practice aims to create union between body, mind and spirit, as well as between the individual self and universal consciousness.
Such a union tends to neutralize ego-driven thoughts and behaviours, creating a sense of spiritual awakening, leading to greater integration of inner peace and clarity of the mind. The ultimate goal of yoga is to achieve liberation to strength and integration that makes possible for the following benefits:
- Improves cognitive function: A small 2017 study found that a 12-week Kundalini yoga intervention improved cognition, memory, and mood among participants with minor cognitive impairment and who are aged 55 years and above
- Relieves stress: Several studies show that Kundalini yoga can reduce stress among adolescents in urban areas and adults under the age of 45
- Increases flexibility: A small 2017 study involving college women found that 16 weeks of Kundalini yoga sessions significantly improved flexibility on a sit and reach test.
- Reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression: Another small study involving women with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) found that eight weeks of Kundalini yoga can reduce anxiety levels relative to those who just received standard therapy.
What is Kundalini Yoga?
Kundalini Yoga is a sacred science. This technology precisely and consciously combines breath work, hand positions (that lock and direct energy into different parts of the brain), eye-focus, mantras, body locks, dynamic postures, and meditations to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system on a cellular level, regulate the 72,000 nerves endings in the body, expand lung capacity, purify the blood stream, and increase energetic awareness. It brings balance to the mind-body-spirit (soul) connection.
This course is suitable for practitioners of all levels, ages or physical abilities. No prior experiences in yoga is required to attend the course. For advanced practitioner, each session deepens your inner connection.

What is Yoga of Joy 什么是喜乐瑜伽
Yoga of Joy is a dynamic, “ancient-future” system of Tibetan Vajrayana and primordial yoga from the lineage of Yuan Miao. It draws from the sounds and lights of nature, and the energies of mountains, oasis, stars and seas, to fill our hearts and body with joyful awakening and enlightened peace. The dynamic and lively Yoga of Joy cultivates a mind that embraces simplicity, a heart that holds emptiness, and a clever body that exudes wisdom.
Yoga of Joy integrates the physical with the spiritual, the circulation of blood and subtle energy, and the principles of balance between Yin and Yang. It deeply purifies energetic channels of both gross and subtle bodies (physical, mental, emotional) through a concise and effective combination of postures, breath-work, visualizations, mantra and body and finger mudra. It is a potent way to directly elevate our consciousness. Practicing Yoga of Joy rejuvenates every part of the body, including the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, endocrine secretions, major organs, circulation through blood and energy vessels, and penetrates the glandular and cellular level.
Yoga of Joy encourages us to be ourselves and be at ease while it enriches our awareness of the body, speech and mind, as well as heaven, self and Earth. The mastery of Yoga of Joy does not lie in the flexibility of the body, but the flexibility of the mind. Anyone, from young to old, can practice the Yoga of Joy.
We look forward to walk with you on this path of joyous and mindful living.
