In this episode we spoke to Fateh Kaur (Mia Rosen Glick) on the benefits of Kundalini Yoga.
Mia is a Miami native. At fourteen, she started modeling. As a teenager, she began to practice yoga for stress relief from work, school and social pressure. In the 90‘s, while living and working as a Ford Plus size model in NYC, she discovered her passion for Kundalini yoga (3HO) as a tool to release and purify the body and to renew the spirit. She studied directly under Yogi Bhajan at The Master‘s Touch in Espanola, NM in 1996 and met with him many times over the years for guidance. In 1997, She traveled to Pune, India to learn from BKS Iyengar and Geeta at their school. Mia has taught yoga for over 15 years and began teaching prenatal at the beginning of her pregnancy, 13 years ago. She is certified in Kundalini yoga & Prenatal Yoga along with years of training in Anusara, Iyengar and 5 Rhythms.
Kundalini Yoga (Sanskrit kuṇḍalinī-yoga कुण्डलिनी योग), also known as laya yoga, is a school of yoga. Kundalini yoga was influenced by the tantra and shakta schools ofHinduism.
Kundalini yoga 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.”
In 1968 Yogi Bhajan introduced his own brand of kundalini yoga into the United States, “Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan”. Yogi Bhajan founded the “Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization” (3HO) as a teaching organization. Yogi Bhajan took Brahmachari’s unique postures and techniques, attached them to Tantric theories and Virsa Singh’s mantras, and sold them as his own creation called “Kundalini” yoga
