Imagine a snake uncoiling up through your spine to the top of your head, bringing renewed energy through your seven chakras and finally shedding its old skin to reveal more of the true, energetic-aware you. This is the idea behind Kundalini yoga, which helps to release this uncoiling. Kundalini yoga is a spiritual, precise form of yoga that involves chanting, singing, breathing exercises, and repetitive poses. There are six components to a Kundalini yoga practice, always done in the same order: opening chant, Pranayama breathing, Kriya postures done in sequence with breathing, hand positions (mudras), relaxation, meditation for awareness, and a closing chant. Kundalini benefits the metabolism, memory, mood, stress levels and heart rate.
