  4. 4. Kundalini and Yoga • Kundalini has origins in the Tantric philosophy • No mention of kundalini in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras • Hatha Yoga integrates kundalini with other yoga disciplines • Hatha = ‘ha’ (moon/ida) + ‘tha’ (sun/pingala) • Hatha yoga: balance the two streams of energy so shakti can flow in sushumna • In Hatha Yoga Pradeepika, Kundalini forms a major part of yoga 10/10/2008 Kundalini and Nadis 4
  5. 5. Chakras • In Sanskrit, chakra translates as quot;wheel.” • Center of activity that receives, assimilates, and expresses life force energy (prana) • Spinning sphere of bioenergetic activity emanating from the major nerve centers • seven main chakras aligned in an ascending column from the base of the spine to the top of the head 10/10/2008 Kundalini and Nadis 5
