To the point: Calming, gentle and genius
Review: I’ve been practicing yoga to manage my health for about a year now. I battle several autoimmune diseases and an endless number of symptoms. I’ve enjoyed Strala and Restorative yoga with great positive health effects.
Essential Kundalini Yoga has opened my life to an awakening yoga. Filled with a calm energy, a euphoric enlightenment, this book is completely different from anything I’ve learned about yoga.
It’s not all about learning what Kundalini, there are actual practices within this book. I love the pose descriptions, they are written spectacularly. The explanations are concise and fool-proof. They also have photos to demonstrate a position. Every time I read pose instructions I hear a soft calm voice teaching me yoga, this is how I imagine the authors teach in person and it reads perfectly.
The amount of positivity in this book is outstanding! A book like this could create world peace.#VirginiaandKhalsaforPresidents 😉
I recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn about yoga, anyone already doing yoga and everything in between. A full 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 for this one.
