Kundalini yoga is soooo different. Different from the way vinyasa might be different from ashtanga or from hot yoga. And because I am a big fan of a variety of different flavors of yoga, I don't want to come off sounding like one is superior than another. Having said that, in my personal hierarchy of likes, I think Kundalini Yoga is the boss. No surprise there- this is what I chose to teach.
Kundalini yoga teachers have often been asked this question of how this yoga is different. I don't have one sentence to explain this. I'd love to hear from anyone that might have a clue how to answer this concisely, other than, you just have to experience it. Here is a description with regards to the experience that kundalini yoga offers by comedian and activist Russell Brand:
Kundalini Yoga is the crack cocaine of yoga;
if Hatha is a mild weed high,
Iyengar is a deep hash glow
and Ashtanga is amphetamine,
Kundalini Yoga blows the fucking doors off..
