In the human organism, there is a sleeping dormant force known as Kundalini energy situated at the root of the spinal column. There is an infinite amount of energy within us, with the regular practice of Kundalini kriyas or asanas one can develop an understanding of higher consciousness or human evolution. To awaken this Kundalini you must prepare yourself through yogic techniques. With the regular yogic practices or sadhana Kundalini ascends, it passes through each chakra and balances or purifies the Nadis(energy channels). When these energy channels get purified kundalini shakti awakens, communications between higher and lower dimensions of consciousness is established and the awakening of Kundalini occurs.
Kundalini yoga consists of Kriya. Kriya is the name of the combination of Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, and Bandhas and Mantras for Chakras. Various Kriyas awaken or balance the energies of Chakras and Kundalini. While performing these Kriyas the Saadhak feels the awakening of the energies inside him. Kundalini Yoga is the most potent form of yoga that brings together all the traditions of yoga and tantra.

Pranayama denotes a control over the ‘Prana’ (life force) within one’s body. It is also the art and science of controlling one’s breath. With the help of Pranayama, one may establish the balance between the Ida Nadi (containing Moon Energy) and Pingala Nadi (containing Sun Energy). This balance encourages the activation of the Sushumna Nadi, the central energy channel (containing Kundalini Energy).

I've read a lot of reviews about yoga schools in Rishikesh, and it seems like a lot are fake, or written by someone who never attended the course, so I started asking myself, how can I write a review that conveys truth.
In some ways, my expectations were exceeded. The experience as a whole was a good one and worth the cost which is comparatively low. The food was consistently good.
The location of the school is perfect, in the center so its an easy walk to cafes and shops but tucked a little further up on the mountain so you have a beautiful view.This is definitely a traditional Indian Ashram accommodation being very basic but nice for India standards. There isn't an outdoor area to hang out or read so much and the rooms are a little dark. The yoga hall however is beautiful big and airy.
This yoga school is simply awesome Every teacher is more than just teacher..very friendly & at the same time very professional
learn to practice and refine the following Hatha Mudras:
Chakras are the nerve centres seen in our body. There are 72,000 Nadis (channels of metaphysical energy or life-force) in our body, and there are various nerve centres for these 72,000 Nadis. The human body actually has 109 nerve centres, but among those, nine centres are important, and even in those nine, seven centres (Chakras) are of primary importance. And when energy (kundalini) or consciousness flows through these nerve centres, there are different emotions, feelings or sensations that one experiences.
The base of the spine or the sacrum is the location of the first centre called the Muladhara Chakra. When the Muladhara Chakra is activated, what happens? One experiences enthusiasm in life. When it is dormant, then one experiences dullness and inertia. One does not feel interested in anything. This is the first Chakra. This chakra is associated with throwing out waste.
The same energy moves upwards to the second Chakra which is located behind the genitals and it manifests as procreation or creation – meaning in the form of any creative activity or as sex drive. When you are obsessed with sex, then you do not do anything creative. You forget about creativity entirely. When you are engaged in any creative activity, then lust does not trouble you. People who are obsessed with sex are not very creative. When the same energy manifests itself as creativity, then sex moves to the background. So here the energy could manifest as a creative or procreative tendency. You need not label the energy as ‘good’ or ‘bad’. That is just how it is.
The same energy moves upwards to the navel region and manifests in four forms or feelings. What are they? They are jealousy, generosity, joy, and greed.When people feel jealous they feel some sensation in the stomach region. Isn’t it so? You must have seen Santa Claus, the Laughing Buddha, or a Seth Ji (a wealthy businessman) – they all have a big stomach. So - jealousy, generosity, joy, and greed are the four flavours of consciousness that manifest in the third Chakra.
From the navel region, the energy moves upwards to the heart region. Here, from a four-petal flower, the energy is represented by a three-petal flower. What do the three petals signify? They represent fear, love and hatred. When people feel hatred or fear or love, the sensation is felt in the heart region. When there is love, there is no fear. When there is fear, there is no love. At any point of time, only one of the three emotions takes the front position while the other two go in the background. It is not that they disappear entirely.
When the same energy moves to the throat Chakra, what is the sensation you experience? You feel gratefulness, and you have a sensation in the throat region when you experience grief. When you are grieving, your throat chokes. And when you feel very grateful, then also your throat chokes. The basic function of Vishuddhi Chakra is communication.
When the consciousness moves to the centre of the forehead, it manifests as anger, awareness or alertness. Knowledge and awareness are depicted by the sixth Chakra. The same point is also the seat of anger, and is also said to be the region of the mystical Third Eye. You must have read or heard the story of how Lord Shiva opened His ‘Third Eye’ and burnt Lord Kamadeva into ashes. This Third Eye is the seat of anger as well as the seat of knowledge and awakened wisdom. This is also associated with the vision and other four senses.
When the Consciousness moves to the top of the head, then one experiences only bliss. There is nothing else. You no longer feel any duality, any sense of conflict or separation. You feel totally connected and one with everything. You feel so blissful. This chakra is directly responsible for the brain functioning.
These seven Chakras or seven nerve centres are connected with different glands in the body. In scientific terms you can say thyroid gland, or the adrenal glands, pituitary gland, pineal gland, etc. Science also agrees how these glands are responsible for experiencing various emotions. This is something our ancient Rishis knew since thousands of years ago. They mentioned all this in the scriptures. They depicted each of the seven Chakras in the forms of a lotus or different petal flowers. Why is this so? This is because when you go deeper in meditation, the consciousness becomes very subtle, and your mind becomes fresh like a flower. It becomes fresh, alive and soft. In such a delicate state of consciousness, you experience the rise of energy in the system.
Lightness is connected with subtlety. Grossness is connected with inertia and negative sensations; negative feelings. When you are negative, when you are rude or rough in your behavior, there is a certain inertia, a certain heaviness in the system. When you feel all the positive sensations, you feel a sense of lightness. When the energy moves upwards, then from inertia it transforms into enthusiasm, then creativity. From creativity wells up joy. When you are happy, you are naturally generous. Then the energy moves up further into the heart chakra where you only feel love for everybody around you. When you feel so much love, you feel so much gratitude and from gratitude comes alertness. It brings total awareness, and this awareness leads you to bliss.
