Last year, I attended advance kundalini yoga course near Rishikesh. The place was the yoga center in the large campus of “Mountain Stream” resort. The practical and theoretical training of the course was well organized. Their teaching staff is professional and well qualified. I practiced pranayama, nadi shodhan and meditation techniques in most traditional way. Tandon kriya was new to me, which is put into kundalini yoga practice for mellowing sleeping kundalini by striking your lower part to the floor.
