Best Mats for Kundalini Yoga

What Is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini yoga originates from the Vedantic culture.

In simple terms, kundalini is spiritual energy.

The practise takes place in the form of regular breathing and meditation, which aims to relieve your spirit from Karma.

It is also perceived to enlighten you of your purpose on earth.

The body bows down to these practices as the mind and nervous system respond rapidly to the energy.

There are also some selective physical postures involved to work up the spine. Kundalini yoga exposes the body to a whole new experience of maturity.

This is a class that is designed to balance the spiritual and the physical using sound, mantra and meditation alongside challenging postures.

Kundalini attempts to release the energy that is trapped in the lower spine in order to create positive shifts in not only your physical health, but also your mental well-being.

This is a meditation driven class with time between postures to relax and focus inwards.

As such, as thicker, comfortable mat would be perfect.

You should also consider that some of the poses can be quite ambitious so a larger mat might also be a good idea.
