In the kundalini yoga course, the focus is given on the kundalini kriyas, advanced breathing practices (pranayama) and bandhas (energy locks). Yoga asana are also the part of kundalini yoga training course, in kundalini asana the approach is to keep the chakras (energy centres) in mind.

Later, students will learn and practice to apply different practices together like which energy lock should apply in which yoga posture. That’s why after 1 week, practices become more advanced for which more strength and awareness is required. In this way students start becoming aware of energy flow or the flow of prana in the body and start getting more control over prana. This flow of prana relates with the pranamaya kosha of body which is one of the five sheaths of human body.
