Today we started talking about what really interests me in yoga… energy, specifically Kundalini awakening. Many practitioners of yoga asana (yoga poses) don’t realize that this is really why you practice asanas, to prepare you for this. All yogic paths – indeed all religions – eventually lead to Kundalini awakening in one form or another. In Christianity this is depicted as a dove descending onto the shoulder of a saint to signify the holy spirit entering a saint. It can happen by studying scripture, through prayer, through association with a teacher, or through Hatha yoga.
