Norfolk Yoga

Norfolk Yoga - Kundalini is a coil of energy or likewise called Skakti, located at the base of the spine, according to ancient Hindu philosophy. Through the method of spiritual development, Kundalini energy could be awakened and this process causes it to rise along the spine and activate the chakras or likewise known as energy centers along the way. This stimulation is believed to lead to spiritual enlightenment along with physical effects.

It is not known when exactly the concept of Kundalini began, although there are passages in the 8th century Siva Sutras are referenced in the teachings. In Hatha Yoga Pradipika, a Hindu text that was written between the twelveth and fifteenth centuries, the Kundalini is described in much greater detail. It elaborates on the physical exercise that the Western cultures most commonly connect with yoga.

While he was translating two Hindu texts, Sir John Woodroffe referred to Kundalini as "Serpent Power." His descriptions in the early 20th century have lead to the longstanding image of Kundalini as a snake. The term Kundalini truly translates to mean "coiled up." Famous Western thinkers C.W. Leadbeater and Carl Jung both discussed Kundalini in their writings. A lot of their critics object that they did not do the idea any justice as they took it out of its cultural context.

There are a number of people who want to explore the idea of Kundalini by practicing Kundalini Yoga. This is a blend of meditation, postures and chanting that is meant to stimulate the Kundalini power in the body. Awakening the Chakras can also comprise completing special breathing exercises, eating particular foodstuff and contemplating some images. A lot of people feel this is the greatest form of mind and body exercise since it emphasizes the physical benefits of spiritual health. Some of the medical professions in the West have just given Kundalini Yoga a second chance.

Kundalini Yoga has a reputation of being very powerful and practitioners warn that one should not seek to stimulate it on their own with no expert guidance. Kundalini stimulation is described by some as being a lengthy and often lifelong learning method. As Kundalini rises through the chakras, it could be an extremely intense experience both emotionally and physically. Several people believe that it could also be harmful if not done with caution and done right.

There have been some side effects noted to Kundalini stimulation including: tingling sensations, depression, gastrointestinal problems, anxiety and headache among others. It is recommended to tell a medical doctor whom you believe and to secure a spiritual leader prior to seriously embarking on Kundalini work. This would help maintain individual safety since diagnosing whichever medical issues that can probably be connected to Kundalini could prove to be a delicate issue. Those who practice Kundalini and practitioners themselves claim that awakening it can have unbelievable benefits in each aspect of a person's life. It is always suggested to discuss with your medical doctor before starting whichever new physical activity.
