UNLEASH YOUR POTENTIAL TO LIVE THE LIFE YOU'VE ALWAYS WANTED. Kundalini yoga engages your unique sources of energy -- those that empower your spirit as well as your body. Drawing from the riches of ancient yogic tradition, "The Kundalini Yoga Experience" offers a system of physical poses, breathing techniques, and focused meditations that, when practiced together, will bring you - Increased physical health and strength - Emotional balance - Heightened sensory awareness - Enhanced intuition and creativity - Greater peace and fulfillment in relationships - A deeper sense of your own spirituality Unlike any other yoga guide, "The Kundalini Yoga Experience" encourages you to develop a practice that suits your needs. At the start, a simple numerological profile based on your birth date reveals your strengths and weaknesses. From there, you'll learn which exercises and meditations will be most effective in helping you balance each energy center (or chakra) in your body. Clear instructions and photographs guide you through each step, and as you move from one to another, you'll see how physical movement and spiritual reflection go hand in hand to heal and strengthen every part of you. With regular practice, you'll be surprised at how strong, healthy, and fulfilled you feel. Experiencing the power of Kundalini is your birthright -- embrace it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical Kundalini yoga guide 5 Oct 2002
Format:Paperback
The most outstanding quality of this excellent book is its accessibility to both the novice yoga student and the experienced teacher. It is a rare treat to find a book on Kundalini Yoga which encourages the reader to work alone if there are no expert teachers around. It does this in a safe, confident and careful manner, leading the reader through the initial stages to the final, satisfactory stages of practising this powerful yogic system.
The book is set out in four parts :
1. Numerology and the chakra system
This aids the student in choosing which kriya and meditation to practice in order to balance the chakras.
2. Your practice - preparation for practice.
3. The kriyas and meditations - beautifully photographed and clearly explained with smiling, confident models.
4. Kundalini components - an essential explanation of yogic elements.
The book includes precautions, an excellent glossary, some concise tables explaining the chakras and our ten bodies.
As a teacher, I have used this book for several months, finding it so well produced, I can work from it very easily and I have also recommended it to my students.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kundalini Yoga Experience 20 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
After reading the review for this book I was really looking forward to recieving it and having a good read! It arrived and I have read and thoroughly enjoyed it. Though that is certainly not where it ends with this book, it is just the beginning as this book will be a lifelong practice companion to access and reference.

I connected with the book and found it easy to understand. Instructions are clear both in written description and photographic demonstration. The book also includes some beautiful, clear illustration.

I worked through the book and could not believe how very accurate the numerology was for me, I was amazed! I am looking forward to starting my first 40 day meditation soon after I have completed my current one. I was very impressed with the chakra questionairre too, it is a great way to help you to decide what you want/need to work on when choosing you kriya's.

There is a good introduction which includes the essence of yoga and information about Yogi Bhajan, I found it particularly interesting. Then Part 1 of the book covers Yogic Numerology, how to work out your numbers and what your numbers are and then directs you to the section where you find your numbers and related area and see if you need to work on them at this time...I found this really interesting and accurate for me. The Chakra system is next and covers all of the chakras and what they relate to and how to tell if they are in or out of balance, then a chakra questionairre that identifies what you need to work on. Part 2 of the book is about your practice, the Kundalini yoga experience and your personal preparation. Part 3 of the book covers the Kriyas and Meditations starting with a Kriya and Meditation for everyone that can be done everyday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Manual 15 Dec 2004
By Jason - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is organized quite well. The layout is simple and straightforward. You are taken step by step in creating your own yoga routine. First, you learn about numerology and then use it to calculate which yogic bodies you need to work on. There are two meditations to choose from per yogic body. Next, you learn about the chakras and use a chart to rate your abilities within each chakra. You then use these scores to determine which chakra to work on first. Finally, you are shown how to compose an entire routine consisting of warm-up exercises, your personal kriya (chakra exercise), deep relaxation and wake-up sequence, your personal yogic body meditation, and a completion mantra. There is easily enough information in this book to provide for years of diverse methods of practice.

The book is also very well illustrated; all of the exercises are quite easy to emulate. The final section illustrates and expounds upon aspects of the exercises including breath, mantras, mundras, asanas, and bandhs.

Something to note also: this book is primarily an instruction manual. As such, it doesn't always adequately or fully explain everything presented. If you are, in fact, looking for a training guide and not a book that espouses the metaphysics of yoga, this is not really a problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is yoga 5 Oct 2002
By Judy Fraser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It is not often you get to read a book that has been simply written in an authoritate manner by people who clearly walk the walk, as well as walk the talk. Well written, beautifully illustrated there is nothing to stop anyone who is interested beginning to learn the discipline safely and to their benefit with immediate affect. This book is much needed and is a credit to its authors, both of whom have been hard at work serving others over many years as they learned their trade through practice and service to others. This book has a refreshing approach where self diagnosis made easy and gifted to the reader in a way they can relate to and understand. True at a physical level but also for the emotions and for the intellect. Remedial measures are explained and made simple and then it is up to the reader whether to proceed or not, if they choose to then the remedial measures of today become the preventative means of tomorrow. Available in the USA and Canada as The Kundalini Yoga Experience and in the UK as Kundalini the Essence of Yoga - same book different title both by Guru Dharam Singh & Darryl O'Keeffe. Both the authors are real yogi's of our time yet follow a traditional lineage influenced by Yogi Bhajan, an unbeatable combination and a must for any bookshelf.

3.0 out of 5 stars charts unreadable 31 Aug 2012

Format:Kindle Edition
I ordered this book in the Kindle edition and while the content seemed good, the Charts in the Kindle edition were unreadable, so I had to ask for a refund. My suggestion is to purchase the book if you are interested.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very thorough and complete for a book of its size! 3 Aug 2009
By L. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been a practicioner of kundalini yoga for over 10 years, and a teacher since 2004. I love this book because it covers all the basics of kundalini and yet has some very creative sets. I especially love the way the book is organized. It clearly explains the order of a class and is beautifully organized by chakras--giving two to three sets of exercises that focus on each chakra. The only drawback I have found is that many of the sets are very, very challenging and are not easy to teach to beginners. . . most of them are not ideal for introducing someone to kundalini (although a few of them are quite fine). Beautifully layed out and photographed, lightweight and thin enough to travel with easily.
