I was so in love after my first Kundalini class that I plunged in and took my 200 hour Kundalini yoga teacher training to grow my practice. That was also such a life changing experience that I recommend everyone get involved and bring their practice to the next level. The teacher training is an amazing transformative journey. It is truly a gift of unexpected growth and a lifelong treasure. Kundalini yoga has forever changed my life! I can go into a class upset about something in my life and by the time class is done, I can barely remember what I was even upset about. Talk about yoga for your mind, body and soul!
