"If you conquer your mind you can conquer the world." (Guru Nanak)
“Individual consciousness will refine you, group consciousness will expand you and universal consciousness will redeem you to infinity.” (Y. Bhajan)
Already in the 70s in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Lina do Carmo began to practice Yoga. The energetic body-work is the basis of her entire development in both: her career as contemporary dancer and her 25 years experience as dance teacher. Energy flows by movement: Lina do Carmo deepened this intuitive knowledge by experiences in Kundalini Yoga. Since 2005 she attended various Kundalini Yoga workshops with Guru Dharam Singh Khalsa following the Yogi Bhajan method. In 2008 she had further studies with Kartar Singh at the Amrit Nam Samovar Institute in France to become a Kundalini Yoga Aquarian Teacher.
Kundalini Yoga lets freely flow the life energy. Energy blockades dissolve as the psycho energetic centres of the body (Chacras) are activated by targeted breathing techniques, usually combined with fast movement sequences called Kriyas, innumerable Mudras (symbolic and sacred gestures) and Mantras. This Indian tradition comes from ancient sources - and helps us today to balance body, mind and soul in good rhythm and harmony. These simple exercises give moments of joy and can prevent illness and stress.
Yogi Bhajan: "The teachings are the teachings, and have no personalities in them. Teach exactly like it is…". These are teachings received from “The Golden Chain“ – from teacher to teacher... "Such a scientific know-how can expand the mind and brings the equilibrium that enables to control physical structure and experience the infinite self."
Kundalini Yoga teaches us how to reach a strong immune system, vital glands, a strong nervous system, good circulation, and awareness of the impact of our habits.
C.G. Jung said that Kundalini Energy is present in every human body and can be awakened through certain techniques.
I have learned that Kundalini energy is a Divine creative force in us and will be awaken only when it is the right moment for the soul. That is not the central aim of Kundalini Yoga. The practice is a daily help to keep ourselves Health, Happy and Holy.
Kundalini Yoga is like a big ocean. Each one can take as much one needs. The most important thing is your experience. No words can replace that experience!
