"Sat Nam !" and welcome to Kundalini Yoga, the mother of all yogas and the most powerful yoga known. As brought to the West in 1969 by Yogi Bhajan, it produces results 16 times faster than ordinary yoga.

Its power comes from the Kundalini, an enormous reserve of untapped potential within each of us. It is normally depicted as a coiled or sleeping serpent, located in an area towards the base of the spine.

By gradually and safely awakening this serpent and employing its power, you will benefit greatly from an elevation in consciousness, promotion of physical well-being and an expansion of awareness. You will feel more relaxed and at ease with yourself. Your life will be transformed into one which is happy, healthy & harmonious.

Kundalini Yoga is the science, art and technology enabling one to access and utilize his or her own creative power for elevation of consciousness, healing and other purposes beyond reproduction. This power, (shakti), is thought to lie dormant in the lower end of the spine, and is often pictured as a coiled, sleeping serpent (kundalini means coiled), until it is awakened, either spontaneously or by yogic techniques, and arises to unite with the Universal Energy (prana), empowering the individual with awareness beyond ordinary perception and powers (siddhis) beyond ordinary ability.

Kundalini Yoga is the most powerful and inclusive of all yogas. Although sharing the same goal as Hatha Yoga - union with the Universal, Divine Source, or God, it can give results up to 16 times faster. It is also easier to practice and takes less time. You may know that Hatha Yoga postures tend to be quite difficult and you have to maintain a pose for a long time. Many people simply cannot do those poses.

Kundalini on the other hand does not rely on difficult poses. It consists of exercises or postures (Asanas) combined with special breathing (Pranayama), hand and finger gestures (Mudras), body locks (Bhandas), chanting (Mantras) and Meditation. These are done together, or in sequence to create exact, specific effects.

A Kriya is an exercise or group of them, with one or more of the other components, whose total impact is greater than the sum of its parts. Kundalini Yoga sets are kriyas, rather than simply calisthenic series.

So Kundalini Yoga is much more "concentrated" than other yogas. It is also safe to practice on your own since the postures are not dangerous for beginners.

Kundalini Yoga is addictive! Once the results are experienced, we want more !

Electromagnetic Field Balancing Technique

EMF Balancing Technique works with the human energy field. Until the last decade we were unaware of how to make changes in our electromagnetic field.

This technique works to release blocks from past events that were traumatic without having to relive the trauma. EMF Balancing clears our energy fields and strengthens the core energy channel where we receive and hold energy from the Universe. Most people think of energy fields as the aura and chakras.

The aim is to restore the balance of energies in one's life, but this is a personal matter in as much as the extent to which EMF Balancing will be beneficial is based on one's personal intent. It can be life transforming or merely a facilitated way to cope more easily with stress or as a form of support during a particularly challenging period in your life.

The human energy field is much larger than most people think. Additionally, our energy field stores energy from past events. When energy is stored from past events, that energy causes patterns in our lives to reassert themselves in the present and future. Peggy Dubro, the originator of the EMF Balancing Technique has discovered the key to the human energy field.

There are four phases to the technique:

Phase I balances wisdom and the emotions and heightens our intuition.

Phase II focuses on Self-direction and support, releasing stored emotional issues.

Phase III intensifies the core energy, allowing us to radiate the light we hold.

Phase IV focuses on energetic accomplishment so that we can joyfully co-create.

In all four phases of the EMF Balancing Technique, the calibration of energy is always in accord with each person's innate wisdom. Everyone is unique and so the results are individual.

Phase III or IV



Combination of 2 Phases



EFT® (Emotional Freedom Technique) A Form of Self-Help

EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques in brief:

•  EFT is a meridian energy therapy - just like acupuncture, it works directly on the meridian system in the body. But instead of needles, you stimulate the major meridian points by tapping on them or massaging them lightly.

•  EFT is a true mind/body healing technique because it combines the physical effects of meridian treatments with the mental effects of focusing on the pain or problem at the same time. 

•  EFT is a self-help protocol, designed for ease of use and so everyone can benefit from Emotional Freedom Techniques without prior knowledge about meridians.

EFT was designed and developed by Gary Craig , a Stanford Engineer, from Dr. Roger Callahan's Thought Field Therapy or TFT. 

TFT is done by a carefully trained practitioner and relies on complex sequences of tapping the points. 

Gary Craig applied the concept of "total redundancy" to TFT and made the EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques protocol in which you tap all the meridian points for every problem, so by default you will always tap on the right one.

Sometimes, the reasons and causes for problems, anxieties and fears are difficult to reach for a single person working on their own. In this case, it is a good thing to visit with a good EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques or MET (meridian energy therapies) practitioner who has experience and can help you find out how to start the process off right. 

But you still continue to use the basic EFT self-help protocol at home or when you are in the situation that is making you nervous, fearful or stressed.

The fact that you can do the Emotional Freedom Technique on yourself anywhere, everywhere - all it takes is a few minutes and your own hands - makes EFT remarkable in all ways in psychology and self help. 

With a little training, you really can use EFT to help yourself in moments of doubt and fear, in the middle of the night, or when you are on your own. 

Learn to be free of emotional and/or physical pain. This technique is easily learned and provides you with a life-long skill. Initial instruction is very empowering.

The Meaning of Karuna

Karuna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be translated as "compassionate action." When individuals experience enlightenment, they report that all beings are known as one. Therefore, it is natural to extend compassionate action or Karuna to everyone without distinction because we are all one. As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all beings, it is understood that Karuna is not only extended to others out of love, but also because it is an entirely logical thing to do. In the same way that you would want to heal your own wounds, you would also want the wounds of others to heal. It is also stated in the Buddhist literature that Karuna must be accompanied by wisdom in order to have the right effect.

Karuna Ki is an advanced healing energy system that takes the Usui system to another level. It is available only to those who have attained Reiki Mastery in the Usui system.
