Editorial Reviews

From the Author

If I were to name one thing that has done the most to change my health, my outlook, and my life for the better, without hesitation I would say Kundalini Yoga. Enjoy the book with my best regards, and be sure to check out the Music and Mantra Companion CD that I produced as the perfect complement to the Kundalini Yoga book.

From the Inside Flap

The yoga in this book is a sampling of the vast wealth called Kundalini Yoga. Here you learn about the branch of yoga based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D., who brought Kundalini Yoga from India to the West in 1969. Kundalini comes from the Indian word kundal, which means "lock of hair from the beloved". The uncoiling of this "hair" is the awakening of the kundalini, the creative potential that already exists in every human.

Master yoga teacher and author Shakta Kaur Khalsa demonstrates how Kundalini Yoga works for everyday life and every person. You are not required to be in perfect physical shape or share any particular belief system. Kundalini Yoga works for you if you can breathe and move your body! In this type of yoga, the most important thing is experience. Your experience goes right to your heart, your core. These ancient teachings are designed to give you a hands-on approach to experiencing your deepest emotions and highest consciousness.

By approaching Kundalini Yoga with openness and respect, and by following the steps included in this book, you can change and enrich your life.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be just what excerpt on the back cover of the book states, it is an illustrated instructional book on Kundalini Yoga. This is not a book on yogic philosophy and lifestyle. Shakta Kaur Khalsa has written a great visual guide book on what Kundalini Yoga is, showing real people performing Kundalini Yoga. These photographs depict what you would do if you attended a Kundalini Yoga class. I found that these pictures give the reader excellent visual instructions on the specific nuances of how the Kundalini Yoga breathing, Mudras, and Kriyas are performed. This Kundalini Yoga book serves the following purposes, it gives the reader a clear picture of what they would be doing if they attended a Kundalini Yoga class. It also serves as a cheat sheet to help the Kundalini Yoga student who attends class to review the postures and be able to do them at home on their own, without the Yoga teacher, and it also serves as a guide to share with a spouse, children, or friends who may want to join you in doing Kundalini Yoga. If the readers is interested in finding out what Kundalini Yoga is about, or if they would like to have a visual reference for what is done in a Kundalini Yoga class, or a book of photographs which demonstrate Kundalini Yoga Kriyas, I would highly recommend this book. If the reader is looking to read about the Kundalini Yogic philosophy and lifestyle I would recommend they purchase, "Kundalini Yoga The Flow of Eternal Power" by Shakti Parwha Kaur Khalsa. "Kundalini Yoga The Flow of Eternal Power" covers Kundalini Yogic philosophy and lifestyle in great detail. "Kundalini Yoga" by Shakta Kaur Khalsa is just what the book states it is, a visual instructional book on what Kundalini Yoga is and how Kundalini Yoga is performed.

Having started Kundalini Yoga in Feb. of this year (2001), I was anxious to "bring home" my practice of Kundalini Yoga. My teacher is wonderful and recommend this book because I wanted to find or learn some thing so that I could do my exercies at home. Kundalini Yoga, by Shakta Kaur Khalsa, was my answer. This book is the very very best at introducing, explaining and depicting exercies, mudras and medidations relating to Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness. The pictures are colorful, clear and the directions are precise and easy to read. I, we, are all lucky to have such an author to give us such great work and allow us to bring home our daily practice of Kundalini Yoga. My hat is off to this book and its context. Thank you.

This book is wonderful with its illustrations by real people, different cultures - not perfect models. I started yoga about a year ago and never knew what small things I was doing incorrectly or why I was doing them. This book explains what every position does for you and which chakra (didn't know what that was) it affects. The book also explains breathing exercises and how important the relaxation after unlocks all the tensions..... liked reading about the history of yoga and about meditation which many movie stars talk about. How helpful it is to take the time for yourself every day in this world of high stress fast lane type living. Kundalini Yoga explains it all. Yoga has changed my life giving it more energy, focus, control, relaxation, and has made me to be happy with who I am. - Not what others think I should be. My sister, 63 is obsessed with
losing weight and this complicated ZONE diet. She is very thin right now. Is this because it's the IN thing to do? She definitely is not happy within herself...

This is a wonderful introduction to kundalini yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. It covers the basics well.
Most of the book is devoted to exercises and meditations, which should be a useful reference for anyone who wants to practice at home. There is also a little bit about yogic philosophy and lifestyle.
Although the book's editing was not very good -- there are several typos and a couple pages were transposed -- it is a physically attractive book, with full-color photos throughout. It is nice to see real people, of various physiques and abilities, as models. I congratulate the publisher on taking this risk, which is hardly ever seen in our society which values unreal images of so-called beauty.
Kundalini yoga stresses the quality of mental and spiritual focus as being more important than how well you can physically perform the pose, and it is nice to acknowledge that most beginners will not be able to do every pose well by showing some models with an extended leg not perfectly straight or a hip not in alignment. Maybe this realism will make it more accessible for some readers. But beginners do need to know what they're striving towards in a pose, however, and there were a few cases where I thought a poorly demonstrated pose did a disservice to the reader. Also, matching the breath to the movement is so important, and there is almost no mention of how to do this in the explanation of specific exercises. (Breathing is discussed in a separate section.)
Despite these criticisms, I do think this is a great book for beginners. The explanations are clear and easy to read and understand. And for those who don't like to concentrate on a lot of text, there are lots of colorful photos to hold your attention.
