Kundalini Awakening Yoga Teacher Training India

The word “kundalini” refers to the hidden dimension of the unconscious brain which remains dormant and is yet to be realized. There is a tremendous amount of energy within each of you waiting to be awakened to its natural state. It awaits in each of you to be realized in the same process of evolution as you progress mentally and physically in life. You still have to explore your complete potential, that is what “kundalini” depicts or represents. This tremendous source of power is the doorway for each of you to recognize and attain that ultimate state of knowledge and be what you call being a complete human, or in Sanskrit “purush”.

As per the ancient scriptures, awakening Kundalini is one of the toughest practices for any practitioner (Sadhak). But for those who have awakened it, have enjoyed the divine bliss with the right kind of channelization of the energy.
