About this title
Kundalini Yoga is a practical, inspirational guide suitable for all abilities, from the complete beginner to the experienced yoga practitioner. Represented by the image of the coiled snake, kundalini is the cosmic energy which lies dormant within everyone. Kundalini yoga aims to release this flow of energy, using ancient yogic systems of exercise, breathing and meditation. Following a general introduction to Kundalini yoga, Part 1 gives illustrated step-by-step instructions on breathing, exercises, meditations and other techniques, guiding you through the main elements of a typical Kundalini class. Part 2 offers a numerology exercise which will enable you to calculate your personal yogic number profile; this in turn will point you to a series of short meditations which will help you deal with life's challenges and fulfill your creative potential. Part 3 focuses on the chakras with a questionnaire to help you evaluate which of your chakras need rebalancing and identify the appropriate practices for each. There is also a glossary, tips on personal preparation for yoga, a bibliography, and lists of resources and contacts.About the Author:
Guru Dharam Singh Khalsa was born in London in 1956. He encountered Kundalini Yoga one day in 1979 and began a daily practice the next. He met his teacher, Yogi Bhajan, in 1981 and started teaching Kundalini Yoga. His interest in Kundalini and its healing applications inspired him to learn Oriental energetic medicine. Formal study resulted in qualifications as an acupuncturist in 1989 and as a herbalist in 1991; he then completed his clinical study in Ho Chi Min City. He founded the Lotus Healing Centre in 1989 and served as the Vice Principal of the London Academy of Oriental Medicine until 1996 when Guru Dharam established I-SKY, the International School of Kundalini Yoga in 1996 with Darryl O'Keeffe. The school presents trainings in several countries.Post graduate interdisciplinary studies in Kabbalah, Dream Yoga, Oriental energetics and the shamanic tradition have provided continued professional development alongside his primary practice of Kundalini Yoga, which he teaches extensively. Guru Dharam is registered as a Teacher Trainer with the Kundalini Research Institute. He is the director of the Kundalini Medicine project which offers Kundalini Yoga Therapy Training in several locations. This teaches the therapeutic applications of Kundalini Yoga as a one-to-one healing modality within the wider context of the holistic paradigm.Guru Dharam is married and has two sons. Darryl O'Keeffe qualified as a teacher while attending the Central School of Speech and Drama in London and he has taught continually in some capacity since 1978. Early employment took him from fringe theatre via community theatre to director of a youth and community centre in Hackney, London. In the early 1980s he began to 'catch' other people's headaches and discovered that he could physically remove pain from other people. His spiritual reawakening began consciously when he took a migraine away from a girlfriend in the street. The energetic discharge knocked him over and rendered him unconscious for a moment and, as he lay there contemplating the stars, he mused that what had just happened was impossible by any science that he had ever been taught and, at that moment, resolved to find out what was really going on in the world. His enquiries led him to the NFSH (now the Healing Trust) and, by the late 1980s, he had become a practising spiritual healer and was helping others to realise their own latent abilities. After attending a Kundalini healing course with Lilla Bek he began intuitively to adopt yoga postures during meditation practice. He began to practise yoga, joining local classes in Hatha, Iyengar, and Kundalini. Although he maintained his Hatha yoga practice for several years it was the "spiritual technology" of the Kundalini Yoga classes taught by Guru Dharam Singh Khalsa that really resonated with him.Darryl is a much-travelled and practically minded spiritual teacher and healer. He has taught holistic healing in a variety of organisations and settings around the world and conducted Sacred Tours to a variety of countries with Judy Fraser. He is a Mentoring Lead Trainer with the KRI Aquarian Trainer Academy; a founder member of the IKYTA Global Teachers Council; and a Director of i-SKY Training Ltd. www.i-sky.net "helping each to BE the best s/he can be." Darryl continues to teach regularly and maintains a consultative yoga and healing practice in the UK where he lives with his Russian wife Elena and their two boys Yuri and Nikolai.
