Kundalini Yoga Practice: By Pieter Schoonheim Samara

It is often said that Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, comprises all systems of yoga.

Even in the school of Advaita Vedanta, which does not depend on the practices associated with Shakti Yoga, we see that the great scholar/saint Adi Shankracharya has written hymns to the Goddess who represents Shakti, the divine power.
