Kundalini Yoga for Your Power Center

Available worldwide

Your power center holds energy. This third energy center of the 7 that line our central line, or spine, is where many of us hold untapped energy. Also called Manipura, the power center is associated with our capacity for commitment, our own will power, and the strength to present our most essential selves to the world. Tap into it through this practice intended to help strengthen your core, your commitment and your stability-on and off your mat. This practice is also a great core workout. Note - Those who are pregnant, have high blood pressure, lung problems, or heart problems do long, deep breathing instead of breath of fire.

Any exercise is great and that's why her classes are satisfying. But I am disappointed with the lack of variety in the movements. It's constant squats ( similar to Gloria Latham) The Kundalini I have practiced has an infinite cache of kriyas to choose from but her classes are not kriyas but sets of exercises that are mostly comprised of squats and planks. If I had never done Kundalini in the past I would be very happy with these classes. Unfortunately Gaia does not have many options for Kundalini lovers.

I like Lindsay's classes! they're not not exactly traditional kundalini... but to me that keeps it interesting as she introduces poses that I've never done before.

While I found this to be more aerobic than I'm use to in yoga I can definitely see the benefits of adding this into my rotation. The breath control alone and 3rd chakra workout can only enhance my singing , among other things.

Lindsey, you instruct beautifully. This class challenged me to stay present and access a sense of power, grace, and joy. I look forward to practicing with you again!

This was my first kundalini class & loved it! Totally felt the energy flowing. Thanks Lindsey, namaste :)

@mustangally hi Alexis. I have a hunch you're used to Yogi Bhajan-style Kundalini? My training has been in non-Yogi Bhajan style kriyas (posture sets), so there's more flexibility and no set opening and closing mantras--although I love incorporating those, too. Namaste, L

mustangally, posted on September 24, 2013

Although I appreciate you as a fine yoga instructor, this is not Kundalini Yoga. To practitioners of Kundalini, a kriya without proper opening and closing mantras feels out of whack. This is just a workout, not KY. I wanted to like this but I was disappointed. Why do you call it Kundalini Yoga, yet leave out some of the most important aspects of the practice?

@SueDue hey Sue--glad to hear it : ) sat nam, namaste

Wow! Easy movements but definitely a sweaty work-out. . .I loved it!

@Kewal600 The tuning in is based on establishing a connection to Yogi Bhajan and the "Masters of Kundalini". If you don't buy into the idea that you need to have a link to a guru, tuning in isn't appropriate.

@kyradk you are so WELCOME. big love, glad the class worked for you. xL

Wow! This was excellent. Thank you, Lindsey for a powerful practice. I feel GREAT! I'm sure it wasn't the best idea doing this shortly before bedtime, but it was worth it. Namaste.

Another great practice by Lindsey - now ready for the day! If you haven't worked with one of Lindsey's sessions do yourself a favor and try it out. Lindsey and Bernie are my two favorite My Yoga "gurus"!

@supersonny thanks! glad you liked it : )

Fantastic flow.....good alternative to cardio

Rachelekehler, posted on November 12, 2012

Great video, lots of good cardio, but I would have preferred a bit more of instruction the first time we did breath of fire and how to properly do it.

lindseylewis, posted on August 7, 2012

glad this class worked for you Murielle! thanks for practicing with me--a few more classes on the way : )

muriellefrancis, posted on August 4, 2012

good full body workout. A lot of arm swinging - all stuff I can do. Nice change.

KewalKaur, posted on May 24, 2012

I love all the sets, however yoga sets would be enhanced with a tune in and Sat Nam or Long Time Sunshine Song.....I hope U continue with the Kundalini Yoga ~ as there are thousands of Kriyas....SAT NAM ~ BLESSINGS FOR YOUR EXPERTISE AND SHARING

AMAZING full-body workout! Loved this class! Thank you!

Hey Dinoclaire! I'm so glad. I love how Kundalini does that--clears the way for your own light to shine. Much love, Lindsey

dinoclaire, posted on March 6, 2012

I loved this beautiful video. It really helped me to connect more to my body and my breath and filled me with positive light. Thank you Lindsey!

YoginiTania, posted on February 10, 2012

Awesome! Is this a kriya from Yogi Bhajan?

mecdesigns, posted on October 28, 2011

Thank you Lindsey! Look forward to seeing more from you!

The best way to start the day, thank you for this lovely class. The music selection was perfect!
Best regards from Paris

lindseylewis, posted on September 19, 2011

thanks for your comments everyone! it's so nice to hear from you. as a side note, I believe that Yin is a beautiful complementary practice for Kundalini--so those looking for some deeper stretching, I highly recommend videos by Cameron Gilley or Bernie Clark, who I did my Yin teacher training with

michelletrantina, posted on September 18, 2011

Hi Giangeet,
Thanks for your thoughts and insights. I think we all have a different form of yoga (for some us there are many) that resonates most with us. It's all part of a beautiful and liberating learning curve ;)
We do have quite a bit more Kundalini on it's way so stay tuned.

woodstaworld, posted on September 16, 2011

Wow! This was faster paced than I imagined - but feel excellent afterwards. Its 1.00am in England and I dont feel like I want to sleep now!

stefieperk, posted on September 9, 2011

Unique and different. I would have liked some yoga poses/stretch incorporated within the lesson.

katarinamandarina, posted on August 24, 2011

lindseylewis, posted on August 23, 2011

This was an excellent work out! I added to favorites and look forward to your next Kundalini video.

LisaRhea, posted on August 16, 2011

I really enjoyed this workout. It was both challenging and exhilerating. All in all, it was a nice change from my regular routine. I will certainly do this one again.

lindseylewis, posted on August 16, 2011

thanks Dreamy ;) All the best to you on Pemba Island. Hope all is well

DreamOcean, posted on August 16, 2011

I really enjoyed this practice, thank you Lindsey! Made me feel quite well-rooted and the length was great... nice to have a bit longer sequence from you now and learn some new kriyas/kriya variations :)

lindseylewis, posted on August 15, 2011

thanks for your comments 333brooklyn :)

naturalyogini, posted on August 15, 2011

Very, very doable class. I think beginners will enjoy this class. Not too hard and not too easy. Gentler than Gloria's classes. All in all very nice moderate paced class. Lots of breath of fire. If you are new to BOF, open mouth and stick out tongue and pant like a dog while pumping belly. Close mouth and keep panting from your belly and through the nose. Equal inhales and exhales. It should be light like sniffing.
