Yoga mat vs Sheep skin

Kundalini practice works to awaken dormant energy, clear chakras and promote energetic circulation. In yogic teachings, sheep skin is known to balance electromagnetic energy. This links in with covering the head to retain energy.


Can I practice Kundalini and other yogas too?

What ever form of yoga you do, ultimately seeks the same goal: union of mind body and soul. If anything you should experience a variety and listen to your body and assess what works for you. However, in Kundalini, the Kriyas themselves (exercises) are very prescriptive and designed for specific effects, therefore must never been altered. They are to be practiced as handed down from Yogi Bhagan.
