Kundalini Yoga is a series of yoga practices that use a holistic and balanced approach to create and maintain physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and well-being. The practice of Kundalini Yoga originated in India about 5,000 years ago.
The best Kundalini yoga poses include movements between asanas, chants, meditation, and pranayama techniques to awaken and nourish the Kundalini Shakti energy that lies dormant at the base of the spine.
According to ancient Vedic wisdom, the Kundalini Shakti energy is coiled three and a half times at the base of each person's spine. When the Kundalini Shakti energy is awakened, joy, wisdom, peace, creativity and great energy are released.
The Kundalini energy naturally heals and transforms and can bring us to oneness with the divine essence of all reality.
The ultimate goal of Kundalini Yoga is to awaken the Kundalini energy and nourish the energy as it ascends and penetrates the seven chakras, culminating in the seventh chakra, Sahasrara, at the top of the skull. When the Kundalini Shakti penetrates the Sahasrara Chakra, great happiness and deep knowledge of divinity arise.
There are many other benefits of Kundalini practice. One of the most important physical benefits of regular practice of Kundalini yoga is an optimally balanced endocrine system. When your hormones are in balance, a feeling of well-being quickly emerges.
Restorative yoga teachers must reject the authoritative role of the teacher. Instead, the teacher should play the role of a helpful guide or gentle caregiver. Taking on the mental role of a caregiver works especially well when using props to help students "accept" the posture and relax.
The supervisor's role can be helpful in looking for signs that a student may need help in learning restorative yoga and related forms at Sewall House Yoga Retreat. Instead of looking for signs of improper posture, look for signs of discomfort or activity and try to relieve the symptoms.
Inexperienced teachers may find it difficult to remain silent for long periods of time. During class, students usually lie still for five minutes. The teacher may find it odd that he or she is not teaching, guiding, or engaging in these long silences, but they are an integral part of the class. The teacher must remember to "let go".
Knowing how to correct or change positions to safely place students with special conditions or needs is very important in restorative yoga. Of course, this is important in teaching all types of yoga, but students with physical limitations, injuries, and other special conditions will likely try restorative yoga assuming that it is not too physically demanding.
An important part of learning how to teach restorative yoga is learning the physiology of relaxation. Studying the anatomy of the nervous system and its effects on the body during arousal and relaxation is essential so that you can read to students during class.
