300 Hours Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Course is a fully residential course which envisages systematic theoretical as well as practical methods of traditional Kundalini Yoga. The course is all about Kundalini and the practices which eventually leads to the manifold expressions of her at the individual level.
Description of the image of Goddess Kali walking on the chest of God Shiva – The quiescent Śiva-aspect is by its definition inert. It is because of that the Devī is in the Tantras symbolically represented as being above the body of Śiva, who lies under Her like a corpse (Śava). As the Kubjika Tantra, Ch. I, states, it is not Brahmā, Viṣṇu and Rudra, who create, maintain and destroy, but their Śaktis, Brahmani, Vaishnavi, Rudrani. Activity is the nature of Prakṛti (Sāṁkhya Pravachana Sutra, III. 66). For the same reason the female form is represented in sexual union as being above (Viparita) the male. When the Devi stands above Śiva, the symbolism also denotes (particularly in the case of Kali) the liberating aspect of the Mother. (“Principles of Tantra,” I. 823).
Attention – Those who are going to join this 300 Hours Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Course should be well-informed that we organise Traditional Kundalini Yoga which was previously called “Laya Yoga”. We don’t teach Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
Kundalini – The term “Kundalini” in a more intellectual sense refers to “dormant supra-mental energy” in individual existence. In tradition of Yoga, Kundalini has been revered as “Mother Shakti which grants access to the extra-sensory phenomenon and liberation.” There are many literal as well as philosophical implications of the word “Kundalini”, however, we would like to site the beautiful exposition of the great Swami Satyananda Saraswati hereunder –
“Kundalini is not a myth or an illusion. It is not a hypothesis or a hypnotic suggestion. Kundalini is a biological substance that exists within the framework of the body. It’s awakening generates electrical impulses throughout the whole body and these impulses can be detected by modern scientific instruments and machines. Therefore, each of us should consider the importance and the benefits of awakening Kundalini”. For more information please, refer to Kundalini Yoga.
