Kundalini Energy and Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Yoga means the raising of Kundalini energy.

Merging male with female - clcik for a larger imageKundalini energy is one's dormant spiritual energy. The Kundalini energy in its' dormant state is visualized as a snake coiled up in the first chakra at the base of the spine, the Muladhara chakra.

When an aspirant of Kundalini Yoga starts activating the Kundalini energy through various kinds of pranayamas, the nadi system is revitalized.

The roused Kundalini energy moves upwards in the central nadi, the Sushumna, passing through each of the lower chakras to reach the seventh, the Sahasrara Chakra. This process is known in Kundalini Yoga as the piercing of the chakras and represents the merging of the female with the male.

Laya Yoga is also called Kundalini yoga, because the raising of Kundalini energy to unite her with the supreme consciousness is the main objective, which is reached through deep meditation (dhyana).
