Comments: Beginning May 1, 1977 and continuïng on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday of the following week, Yogi Bhajan instructed the Los Angeles Advanced Class in a series of Kundalini Yoga sets designed to stimulate the glandular system and strengthen the nervous system. Those sets are presented here in the order in which they were taught. We were blessed with these sets to help us prepare for the heavy times ahead.
