The Sat Jivans taught their first class in New York City on January 1, 1972. From the moment they arrived and through present day, the Sat Jivans have been sharing the science and art of Kundalini Yoga. Kundalini Yoga East offers over 20 Kundalini Yoga classes per week, along with special events and workshops, Sat Nam Rasayan classes, and multiple teacher trainings per year.
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is an ancient system of yogic exercise and meditation that promotes health, happiness, and spiritual awareness.
A complete science that combines postures (asanas), movement, sound current (mantra), breath (pranayam), and meditation into powerful sets called kriyas, this practice is designed to help put you on a path to experience your highest consciousness.
Sat Nam Rasayan
Sat Nam Rasayan is an extraordinary holistic healing art that teaches the practitioner how to enter into a deep meditative state, and at the same time how to help people who request healings. Wherever there is a lack of harmony and balance, that is the place where Sat Nam Rasayan is most needed.
Those who study and practice Sat Nam Rasayan are connected to their innate abilities to see and to understand the reality of what occurs. In the neutral space of Sat Nam Rasayan, the projective meditative mind allows the flow without any resistances; and this free flow results in a revitalized healing.
The journey to transformation is accelerated by sangat (practicing with devoted others) by commitment (showing up) and by the expansive sound of the gong...
“The Gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind, there is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind, the sound of the Gong. It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe. It’s the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.” - Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga
"What is sadhana? It’s a committed prayer. It is something which you want to do, have to do, and which is being done by you. … Sadhana is self-enrichment. It is not something which is done to please somebody or to gain something. Sadhana is a personal process in which you bring out your best." - Yogi Bhajan
Sadhana means daily spiritual practice. It is the foundation of all spiritual endeavor. Sadhana is your personal, individual spiritual effort. It is the main tool you use to work on yourself to achieve the purpose of life. It can be done alone or in a group. Sadhana is whatever you do consistently to clear your own consciousness so you can relate to the infinity within you. Before you face the world each day, do yourself a favor and tune up your nervous system and attune yourself to your highest inner self. To cover all your bases, it will include exercise, meditation, and prayer.
During what are called the “ambrosial hours” (the two and a half hours just before sunrise), when the sun is at a sixty-degree angle to the Earth, the energy you put into your sadhana gets maximum results. Your world is quieter. It’s easier to meditate and concentrate before the hustle and bustle of the day begins. If you absolutely cannot get up early in the morning to do sadhana, then do it some other time! Doing sadhana at any time of the day or night will benefit you. (Kundalini Yoga: The Flow of Eternal Power by Shakti Parwha Kaur)
Develop a regular sadhana and you take control of your life. Develop a deep sadhana and you open the doors of experience. Commit to meet your higher Self each morning and your decisions and your life become original; your life will bear the signature of your soul; your radiance will express the meaningful intimacy of the Infinite in each moment. Immerse yourself in the joy of victory that comes from starting each day with a powerful sadhana and every challenge becomes opportunity. (Sadhana Guidelines)
