“We have never come across a stressful time like this.🙄😓

 👁️We spend our days watching👁️ news channels and taking feeds from social media, and…

 In the night, suffer from restlessness and insomnia💤💤. Which in turn affects our rate of metabolism leading to bloating, heart burning🔥🔥, and even a substantial weight gain.

Good news is that,

I have an amazing tool for you to cope with this difficult time, and the tool is called “Kundalini yoga”🧘


 Science Of Kundalini Yoga

Euphoria…. Exhilaration… Triumph…


What would you call the power that makes your favorite footballer jump off the ground at a surprising angle to hit the football 🏈


“A fielder runs towards a ball to stop a boundary, and he is nowhere within the reach of the ball. Suddenly, he turns into a superman, jumps from the ground, grabs the ball, swings his body, and lands on the field safely!”


I avoid jumping-jacks! Because they require jumping on my both legs. But several occasions and events, toss me off the ground like I am on a trapezium…



 Same you may feel while going through a Kundalini yoga sequence!

 Fast paced yoga postures and Kriyas, breathwork, music, and mantras, all together bring the union of body, mind and soul.

Though, the scientific term used for the above phenomenon is known as ‘the flow’.

Flow is a state of mind in which a person becomes fully immersed in an activity. 

Positive psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi describes flow as a state of complete immersion in an activity. While in this mental state, people are completely involved and focused on what they are doing.


If you have ever felt completely absorbed in something, you might have been experiencing a mental state that psychologists refer to as flow. 


Achieving this state can help people feel greater enjoyment, energy, and involvement. 

Same you are going to feel here with the Kundalini Yoga Kriyas for Weight Loss.


What Is Kundalini Yoga ‘Spiritually’

An ancient practice, Kundalini yoga, combines all the elements of Yoga, asanas (yoga poses), mantras, mudras, meditations, and breathwork. 

According to the Gaia, “Kundalini Yoga is a blend of Bhakti Yoga (the yogic practice of devotion and chanting), Raja Yoga (the practice of mediation/mental and physical control), and Shakti Yoga (for the expression of power and energy).”


When I inquired from my yoga teacher, Mr. Paul Carlos, from the SACRED SPIRAL YOGA, he sends me an eye-opener email with an amazing description about Kundalini yoga (contrary to the common belief in the modern era). Read it here👇

When you practice Kundalini yoga, inch by inch, you slip closer to your spirit. 

It helps you to know, what is it like being a healthy person and how much is healthy weight you can afford to have.

It is much more than being curvy and being fit into an outfit and a body definition.

Being defined by the size of your waist, butts, and busts…

Once you intend, it can help you to shed your grief, anger, blame, shame, and guilts altogether.

 Your life, minus these negativities becomes complete bliss!

 For a blissed person, anything is possible, achieving a healthy weight is one of them.


 Consequently, you start recognizing your inner being and loving your reflections and appearance.


Your Chakras And Kundalini Energy


If you are completely new to Kundalini, here are the tit-bits of Kundalini yoga from the perspective of the energy centers, called Chakras in our bodies.


In yogic philosophies, the Kundalini is the dormant energy that lies at the base of the spine in the area of Muladhara


When this feminine energy rises, by piercing all other six chakras, reaches to Sahasrara to meet the masculine energy of the Shiva, your body is filled up with the profound energy and an unprecedented experience of joy and spiritual awakening.


Kundalini yoga is different from traditional yoga, such as the Hath Yoga and its derivatives, which we practice usually. 

In a way of pace, passion, and the level of diligent work required.

Sometimes, I love calling it aerobic yoga because of its faster pace and a lot of breathwork involved.
