Our Vision

Empowering Africans through Kundalini Yoga for holistic well-being and transformation

At its core, Kundalini Yoga is a powerful spiritual practice that combines physical exercises, breathing techniques, meditation, and mantra chanting to awaken the dormant spiritual energy within individuals. By harnessing the transformative power of Kundalini Yoga, we envision a future where South Africans from all walks of life experience enhanced physical, mental, and emotional well-being, leading to personal growth and a more harmonious society.

Advantages for South Africans:

  1. Physical Health and Vitality: Kundalini Yoga offers a comprehensive approach to physical fitness, promoting strength, flexibility, and overall vitality. South Africans can benefit from improved cardiovascular health, increased energy levels, and enhanced physical resilience, helping them lead healthier and more active lives.
  2. Stress Relief and Emotional Balance: Living in a fast-paced and demanding world can take a toll on mental and emotional well-being. Kundalini Yoga provides powerful tools to manage stress, anxiety, and depression. By practicing Kundalini Yoga, South Africans can learn techniques to calm the mind, release emotional blockages, and cultivate inner peace, leading to greater emotional resilience and balance.
  3. Empowerment and Self-Discovery: Kundalini Yoga encourages self-exploration and self-awareness, enabling South Africans to connect with their inner wisdom and authentic selves. Through this practice, individuals can discover their strengths, overcome limitations, and cultivate a deep sense of self-empowerment. Kundalini Yoga fosters personal growth and self-mastery, empowering South Africans to live fulfilling and purposeful lives.
  4. Cultural Preservation and Unity: South Africa is a diverse nation, rich in cultural heritage. Kundalini Yoga can serve as a unifying force, transcending cultural, racial, and social boundaries. By embracing Kundalini Yoga, South Africans can tap into a universal practice that celebrates unity in diversity, fostering understanding, respect, and harmony among different communities.
  5. Social Transformation and Healing: Kundalini Yoga has the potential to address societal challenges in South Africa. By promoting self-awareness, compassion, and non-violence, this practice can contribute to healing collective traumas, fostering reconciliation, and promoting social cohesion. Kundalini Yoga empowers individuals to become positive agents of change, creating a ripple effect that extends to families, communities, and society at large.
  6. Spiritual Awakening and Connection: South Africa is a land with deep spiritual roots and a rich tapestry of indigenous wisdom. Kundalini Yoga provides a framework for individuals to explore their spirituality, connect with their higher selves, and deepen their connection to the divine. By incorporating indigenous wisdom into the practice, Kundalini Yoga can help South Africans reclaim their spiritual heritage, fostering a sense of belonging and spiritual awakening.

In conclusion, the application of Kundalini Yoga in South Africa holds immense potential to empower individuals, transform communities, and contribute to the holistic well-being of the nation. By embracing this practice, South Africans can experience physical vitality, emotional balance, self-empowerment, cultural unity, social healing, and spiritual connection, paving the way for a brighter and more harmonious future.

Kundalini yogi’s learn yoga asana poses and meditation during part of their 200 hour Kundalini yoga teachers training course which took place in Johannesburg, South Africa on 28 November 2019. Bongekile is one of five new local African yoga teachers who are being taught by the NGO, Yoga4Alex, that is bringing the ancient Indian spiritual practice of Kundalini Yoga to the school children of this impoverished area of the city.

The results of the yoga on the children of Alex has been hugely beneficial as the children are calmed and centered after yoga and it helps them to deal with the hard life many of them have, living in this area which has high unemployment and poverty. Alexandra township or ‘Alex’ as it is known to dwellers in the urban living area – is one of the main townships on the edges of the capital and was built in the early 1900s to house non-white residents.
