Introduced into the USA by the late Yogi Bhajan in
the 1960s, it works on our „chakras‟ to balance our
magnetic energy field, working on our glandular
secretions and nervous system and helping us to
master our minds. The journey is to find God, or
our essence, and then see the essence of others.
Hatha Yoga makes the journey via our body
postures (asanas), Karma Yoga by community
service, and the focus in Raja yoga is meditation.
This Energy Yoga tradition uses three tools
together i.e. short rapid body moves with
breathing techniques and a mantra, repeated
silently or as a chant. A warm-up is followed by a
set of Kriyas specifically for certain chakras or a
particular condition i.e. anger, tiredness, liver
function etc. This is followed by a relaxation and a
short chanting session which opens up the
acupressure points inside the mouth.
