    The Kundalini Yoga programme in
    Cambodia was started to make yoga
    and meditation technology available to
    persons and groups suffering from
    trauma and stress. The programme
    focuses especially on those who
    normally cannot access yoga and
    meditation activities.

    Training Cambodians to become teachers
    is one of the core-activities of the
    programme.

    Classes and other activities
    Kundalini Yoga classes are offered at the
    rooftop of the Kundalini Yoga House
    at #52D in Street 454, and
    in two smaller inside practice spaces.

    The Kundalini Yoga programmme
    also offers healing and meditation
    sessions and level 1 Teacher Training.

    Special events, such as Meditation
    Weekends, Full Moon meditations and
    specialised workshops are offered as
    well.

    Kundalini Yoga
    Kundalini Yoga is said to be the yoga
    of awareness, and each exercise is to
    deepen the experience of concentration
    and awareness of body and mind.

    Kundalini Yoga is different from other
    styles of yoga on offer in Cambodia as
    it combines breathing, movement,
    mantra and meditation in a continues
    class flow.

    Common yoga asanas are the basis
    for many of the movement exercises.
    Movements, as well as the use of mantra,
    may also be part of breathing exercises
    and meditation.

    Is Kundalini Yoga suitable for you?
    Kundalini Yoga classes are suitable for
    beginners and advanced practitioners.

    Persons with limited exercise experience
    can attend classes, too, but are advised
    to practice slowly and to rest during and
    in between exercises if necessary.

    There are special classes for pregnant
    women, and senior citizens.

    In many cases, also persons with physical  
    disabilities can practice this yoga.


    Outreach Activities
    The Kundalini Yoga Cambodia team has
    started a range of outreach activities, with
    classes in poor neighbourhood schools in
    Phnom Penh, and for a small community
    of children living with HIV/Aids just south
    of the city.

    The team has also been asked to help
    enrich a number of workshops and group
    activities with breathing, exercise and
    meditation activities.

    The team teaches stress relief classes to
    staff of NGOs and UN organisations. It is
    involved in training school teachers in
    an NGO project for disadvantaged
    children to use yoga and meditation in
    their classes.


    Who is Kundalini Yoga Cambodia?
    At present, the programme is run by a
    small group of Cambodian Kundalini Yoga
    teachers. All teachers are involved in the
    level 1 and level 2 International Teacher
    Certification Programme. The team is
    supported by two international teachers.

    In addition to Kundalini Yoga classes, the
    team offers additional classes for groups
    and individual students, as well as healing
    sessions.

    Objectives of the programme in Cambodia
    The aim of the Kundalini Yoga programme is to make Kundalini Yoga accessible to local and
    international practitioners, in particular to Cambodians who would normally not attend or
    have access to yoga and meditation.

    Training young Cambodians to become certified teachers and to build an active community
    of teachers and practitioners are among the core activities of the programme.

    Background
    The first Kundalini Yoga activities in Cambodia date back to 2004 when during a few months
    there were classes, small workshops and a project for stress relief focusing at vulnerable
    groups, especially People Living With HIV/Aids.

    In January 2007, regular Sadhanas started on Saturday and Sunday at Nataraj Yoga Centre
    in Phnom Penh. Monthly workshops covered topics such as 'What is Yoga', 'Mind-Meditation-
    Mantra', 'Relationships'; 'Yogic Anatomy', 'Stress Relief', and 'Caring for the Spine'.

    In the second half of 2007, the programme expanded with additional classes on Saturdays
    and Sundays, and on weekdays. Topics for special classes relate to: 'Caring for the spine ...
    dealing with back and neck problems', 'Yoga for Women / Yoga for Men', ‘Healthy Lifestyle’,
    etc.

    The Kundalini Yoga Team also found a suitable space of its own, and since October 2007
    Teacher Training classes started for the Level 1 International Teacher Certification by the
    Kundalini Research Institute (KRI).

    The programme now offers classes during six days a week, conducted by a team of
    experienced Cambodian and international teachers.

    All Cambodian teachers take part in regional Kundalini Yoga and Meditation training and
    events.

Posture and Alignment
Better understand the complexity of individual
postures. Become more aware of the alignment,
the breathing, the sensations  and the
meditative experience.
