Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan
Kundalini Yoga for Youth & Joy - as taught by Yogi Bhajan
Yogi Bhajan was the first to publicly teach Kundalini Yoga when he arrived in the West in He announced he had come to the West "to create teachers, not to gain students". Yogi Bhajan met a number of young hippies, the spiritual seekers of that era, and immediately recognized that the experience of higher consciousness they were attempting to find through drugs, could be achieved by practicing the Science of Kundalini Yoga, while simultaneously rebuilding their nervous systems. Breaking the centuries old tradition of secrecy surrounding the empowering science of Kundalini Yoga , Yogi Bhajan began teaching it publicly. With the yogic sciences of yoga, meditation, yogic philosophy, and loving acceptance, he gave the soon to be called "Baby Boomers" an effective alternative to the prevalent drug culture. He called it the "3HO" healthy, happy, holy way of life.
Yogi Bhajan, a Master of Kundalini Yoga by the age of 16 — itself a rare feat —gave his first lecture at a Los Angeles high school gym on January 5, No matter that not a single person was present that evening; he came to teach and he proceeded to speak to the empty hall. In the turbulent, drug culture of the 60s, Yogi Bhajan first reached out to the youth. Soon realizing that pharmaceuticals provided, at best, a cheap imitation to the peaceful, inner euphoria they could get naturally from Kundalini Yoga, and at worst, had debilitating physical and mental side effects, young people began flocking to his classes, arriving by the busloads. He sparked a movement whose many tendrils have wound their way into our culture.
Yogi Bhajan - The Early Years
Yoga is a tradition and a science with roots in ancient India that has evolved over centuries to embrace the wisdom of many places and times. Although it means something different to each person, it is rooted in oneness or returning to the Source. Each branch is of the same tree, the tree of the Self. Yoga means union. Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness.
