The Soothing Yogi Tea
Some yoga classes will provide students with Yogi tea after the class. After an in-depth conversation with the body, a cup of Yogi tea tastes particularly delicious, as if it also soothes the body and mind.

The most well-known recipe for Yogi tea is shared by Yogi Bhajan, the founder of Kundalini Yoga. According to Catherine, first-level teacher training of Kundalini Yoga, in addition to smooth taste, Yogi tea is very helpful to the body and is also a good choice for a healthy tea. Let’s make a cup of Yogi tea with Catherine and enjoy it to gain full vitality.  

Yogi tea is blended with several spices, including black pepper that cleans the blood, green cardamom that cleans the large intestine, and cloves that help digestion. If you add ginger, it can also relieve pain. Therefore, Yogi tea is good for blood, intestines, nervous system, and bones. It is also good for cold and physical weakness.

Kundalini Yoga 
Kundalini Yoga is an ancient type of yoga, widely promoted by Yogi Bhajan, the yoga master. Every posture of Kundalini Yoga needs to be coordinated with one’s breathing in order to enhance the effect, to release chi lingering in the lower body, and to make chi move upward. Kundalini practitioners usually wear a white robe and a headscarf. They focus on breathing, meditation, and singing, which is more a type of spiritual yoga.
