Women love Kundalini yoga because they can dress up in flowing layers of white & cream drag and engage in spiritual theater. If you give a person a prop, you can make him an actor. If you set an actor up on a stage, you can make him a star. Add the white religious costumes trademarked by Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan and you are worshiping at the altar of the cult of personality. Real kundalini yoga has nothing to do with dressing up in special white religious garments. Kundalini yoga is based in part upon the belligerent and confrontational Sikh religion from Punjab, India.
Cult of Personality
I cringe with embarrassment at the five months I spent listening to the sophomoric prattle of the so-called “Gurus” at Yoga West. I had no idea that some kundalini yoga teachers pass themselves off as gurus and give half hour social consciousness spiels. I came to LA to learn spiritual technology, not listen to some unknown guru talk about pop culture. My only previous exposure to kundalini was the most excellent Sarah Pettit at the Equinox Gym on Rosecrans Blvd. in Hawthorne. She got down on the mat with us and taught me how to rebuild my sagging shoulders.
How I Escaped From A Mind Control Cult
On February 18, 2018, I emailed Yoga West my 30 day request to cancel my unlimited monthly auto-renew membership. What the heck am I doing paying money for Guru Singh’s class when it is on Facebook for free? Kundalini yoga has brought me to a new level of awareness. Thank God I have my 5:00 a.m. yoga practice in the steam room at the Bay Club.
Vacation From Yoga Shoulders
Actually my shoulders really need a hatha yoga break from kundalini. My shoulders feel good just holding them parallel. My shoulders feel good just hanging out in down dog. It is important to have a private and personal spiritual practice that you do at home. Putting on flowing white religious garments seems really fake in our American culture.
