A dynamic style of yoga where poses are practiced for 1-3 minutes (or more) along with breath technique, mantra, hand mudra, bhavana (focus), singing, and meditation.  Kundalini yoga gives you the fast track to becoming your best self.  With regular practice you'll become brighter, connected, humble, and protected, focused to fulfill your dharma (life purpose) and more able to actualize your highest potential.

Hard Core Yoga (all levels)

According to Martial Arts, "If you have a strong chi, you will never be defeated." Chi is vital life force, and it's center originates behind the belly button. Strengthening the core and abs has many health benefits such as: creating good posture/alignment, bringing grace/balance, reducing back pain, increasing self-esteem/self-worth, building self-confidence/courage, massaging and de-stressing the adrenal glands, and improving mood. Expect lots of core work.
