“Kundalini Yoga, also known as laya yoga, is a school of yoga that is influenced by Shaktism and Tantra.  It derives its name through a focus on awakening kundalini energy through regular practice of meditation, pranayama, chanting mantra and yoga asana.  Called by practitioners "the yoga of awareness", it aims "to cultivate the creative spiritual potential of a human to uphold values, speak truth, and focus on the compassion and consciousness needed to serve and heal others."

History

What has become known as "Kundalini yoga" in the 20th century, after a technical term peculiar to this tradition, is actually a synthesis of many traditions which may include haṭha yoga techniques (such as bandha, pranayama, and asana), Patañjali's kriya yoga (consisting of self-discipline, self-study, and devotion to God), tantric visualization and meditation techniques of laya yoga (known as samsketas), and other techniques oriented towards the 'awakening of kundalini'.  Laya may refer both to techniques of yoga, and (like Raja Yoga) its effect of "absorption" of the individual into the cosmic.  Laya Yoga, from the Sanskrit term laya meaning "dissolution", "extinction", or "absorption", is almost always described in the context of other Yogas such as in the Yoga-Tattva-Upanishad, the Varaha Upanishad, the Goraksha Paddhati, the Amaraugha-Prabodha, and the Yoga-Shastra of Dattatreya.  The exact distinctions between traditional yoga schools is often hazy due to a long history of syncretism, hence many of our oldest sources on Kundalini come through manuals of the tantric and haṭha traditions such as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Shiva Samhita. The Shiva Samhita describes the qualified yogi as practicing 'the four yogas' to achieve kundalini awakening while lesser students may resort solely to one technique or another: "Mantra Yoga and Hatha Yoga.  Laya Yoga is the third.  The fourth is Raja Yoga.  It is free from duality."

The Sanskrit adjective kuṇḍalin means "circular, annular".  It does occur as a noun for "a snake" (in the sense "coiled", as in "forming ringlets") in the 12th-century Rajatarangini chronicle (I.2).  Kuṇḍa, a noun with the meaning "bowl, water-pot" is found as the name of a Naga in Mahabharata 1.4828.  The feminine kuṇḍalī has the meaning of "ring, bracelet, coil (of a rope)" in Classical Sanskrit, and is used as the name of a "serpent-like" Shakti in Tantrism as early as c. the 11th century, in the Śaradatilaka.  This concept is adopted as kuṇḍalniī as a technical term into Hatha yoga in the 15th century and becomes widely used in the Yoga Upanishads by the 16th century.”

 From my point of view many Christians think Yoga is simply harmless stretching, but is it? 

In fact, Yoga is a religion, and its purpose is to awaken one's Kundalini.  What is "Kundalini"?  Kundalini is actually a demonic snake that enters at the base of the spine and is awakened by the practice of Yoga.  In other words, according to St. Paul, Kundalini is a demon.  Given that the purpose of Yoga is to awaken one's Kundalini, it can be said that Yoga is simply an invitation to demonic possession, contrary to what some ignorant Christians are saying.  Still skeptical? here are some of the signs one's Kundalini has been awakened:

 

  • Involuntary jerks, tremors, shaking, itching, tingling, and crawling sensations, especially in the arms and legs

  • Energy rushes or feelings of electricity circulating the body

  • Intense heat (sweating) or cold, especially as energy is experienced passing through the chakras

  • Visions or sounds at times associated with a particular chakra

  • Diminished or conversely extreme sexual desire sometimes leading to a state of constant or whole-body orgasm

  • Headache, migraine or pressure inside the skull

  • Increased blood pressure and irregular heartbeat

  • Antisocial tendencies

  • Mood swings with periods of depression or mania

  • Pains in different areas of the body, especially back and neck

  • Sensitivity to light, sound and touch

  • Trance-like and altered states of consciousness

  • Disrupted sleep pattern (periods of insomnia)

  • Loss of appetite or overeating

     

    If you know anything about holy warfare and exorcism, many of these symptoms are red flags for demonic possession. So should a Christian  practice Yoga?  A better question is: Do you want to invite demons into your body by practicing a religion that believes there are gods other than the God of the Bible?

     

    To sum the above up, Kundalini is the worst form of the occult possible.  What actually happens is, you open your chakras for demonic attack.   And just so you know how many can come in by doing this yoga, it’s up to in excess of 8,000.
