Excuse 1: I don't have time go to the gym on the road.
Excuse 2: I forgot my Yoga mat.
Excuse 3: I don't have the right clothes.
It’s easy to let your Yoga practice slide when you’re crammed into a tiny hotel or motel room, too small to roll out a Yoga mat, too confining to stretch out in. No matter. You can still do Yoga.

Produced by JJ Semple, the creator of Golden Flower Meditation, this program reveals a practice you wouldn’t think possible. Without fancy clothes or a Yoga mat, Anna Tzanova demonstrates three ways of doing Yoga on the road, two of them performed on a hotel bed. The perfect antidote to watching too much TV in a dingy hotel room.
Anna Tzanova on Kundalini Yoga
“I use these routines as warm-ups before a class or to “wake up” after a long relaxation.”
The yoga sets included in this video are short and easy to perform. 57 minutes in all, they are suitable for every fitness level practitioner. The longest segment is about 30 min., but you can shorten or prolong the poses or increase the number of repetitions according to the time at hand.
They are part of the Kundalini Yoga teachings of the Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan, who came to North America in 1969 and, for the first time in the Kundalini Yoga’s over 3,000-year-long strictly Brahmin oral tradition, began teaching to open-to-all classes.
The art and science of Kundalini Yoga is considered to be a faster, more direct and thorough approach, consisting of all the elements from the original 8 limbs of yoga, described by Patanjali in his classic treatise. Therefore, it is called Raj Yoga, Mother of All Yogas, or Yoga of Awareness. In essence, it is a Tantric, Alchemical practice, which addresses the many layers of our being and existence in a very approachable form.
Kundalini Yoga, as opposed to Hatha Yoga, was created as a system for the householder, one actively involved in the everyday life, society and family. There is a vast amount of predetermined sets of poses, movements, and meditations, incorporating different breathing techniques, mudras, and mantras geared to achieving a particular goal, a.k.a. kriyas. They vary from completely stationary to very dynamic, physical and everything in between. In that regards this is an appropriate system for the contemporary westerner, since it brings the variety, the pace, the fun, and undeniably the experience and the many benefits.
According to Yogi Bhajan, “The tastiest dish we prepare in Kundalini Yoga is fried ego.” The very intricate poses from magazine covers, with poetic names, don’t belong to this system. Everything here is quite simple and to the point with a depth far greater than meets the eye.
With regular practice of Kundalini Yoga, you can look forward to: increased range of motion, energy level and flexibility; a better working immune and glandular system system; improved physical and emotional balance; decreased levels of stress and related symptoms; better sleep and ability to relax; acute awareness and intuition; heightened creativity; a tuned-in physical body, as well as a more universally realized spiritual self.
