Yoga & Love’s Interview with Gurmukh

Gurmukh is the co founder and director of Golden Bridge Yoga and we are so fortunate to have her come teach a session in Kundalini Yoga at the Hollywood Yoga Solstice Festival. A student of the Kundalini Yoga master, Yogi Bhajan, Gurmukh is also a pioneer in the field of pre-natal yoga.

Practitioners call Kundalini Yoga the yoga of awareness because it focuses on the expansion of sensory awareness and intuition in order to raise individual consciousness and merge it with the Infinite consciousness of God.

“Kundalini Yoga consists of active and passive asana-based kriyas, pranayama, and meditations which target the whole body system (nervous system, glands, mental faculties, chakras) to develop awareness, consciousness and spiritual strength.” —Yogi Bhajan
