Pillars to Practice: What to Expect
Jan 15, 2020
A Kundalini yoga class is a unique experience in almost every class. sometimes a class will be more physically vigorous, while others might be more serene and meditative.
There are two types of new Kundalini yoga students. Most beginners are students who have taken a more typical yoga class (think Hatha or Vinyasa) or someone who has never taken a yoga class in their life.
I often tell students new to Kundalini to mentally collect all their expectations of a more "regular" yoga class and then..... throw it out the window. What you can be sure of is that a Kundalini class is usually laid out with six major components:
1) tuning-in with the Adi Mantra
3) kriya (a series of poses)
6) tuning out with the blessing song and Sat Nam mantra
the typical class is 60-90 minutes:
