Frequently asked questions
Should I wear white to participate in a Kundalini Yoga class?
It is not required for students to wear white clothing in a Kundalini Yoga class. The teachers wear natural fiber white clothing so they can be balanced and neutral while relaying these powerful techniques to students.
Do I have to wear a turban to participate in a Kundalini Yoga class?
No. Most teachers prefer to wear turbans as recommended by Yogi Bhajan. As you continue to attend class and even practice on your own you may find your Kundalini Yoga and meditation is more effective and powerful when done with a cotton or wool head covering. A turban would be a natural progression along a student's spiritual practice.
Should I bring my own yoga mat to a Kundalini Yoga class?
You are welcome to bring such accessories as you prefer. However we do have yoga mats, sheepskins, pillows, bolsters, blankets, etc.
I have heard that "you can go crazy practicing Kundalini Yoga". Is that true?
No. Kundalini Yoga is a powerful practice. It is often called "The Mother of all Yogas". Kundalini Yoga contains mantras, postures, breath techniques, meditation and kriyas that may be found in other yogic schools. Kundalini Yoga however contains all of this within its catalogue of practices, therefore it is highly recommended that students study with an accomplished teacher who has practiced Kundalini for an extended time and is certified by the Internation Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association (IKYTA). This will assure you of learning the proper practices under a teacher who has learned the correct mastery of Kundalini Yoga and is able to pass it on to students in the correct way.
Who are all these bearded men in the pictures in the Sadhana room?
These are masters or gurus of Kundalini Yoga who are part of the tradition carried down through the centuries who practiced and taught their students Kundalini Yoga. The only exception would be Yogi Bhajan who considered himself a spiritual teacher and not a "guru".
