During meditation you can achieve levels of enlightement and relaxation, I have some and they are from floating to energies and out of body experiences.
But the Kundalini is a different thing, it doesn't happen overnight, its a long time learning experience, because it has become so popular now and the propaganda to make money out of it on line teaching, videos and books, they are selling a false idea that you can achieve kundalini awakening overnight.
But if you are experienced in meditation you will know that more often than not the feelings you are having are more of the mind than the spirit.
Yes everybody have the capability to feel the benefits and wonders of meditation, but do not confuse what you are feeling with the real kundalini experience even long time experts that are not trying to make money out of some CDs of training will tell you that is not one day learning but a life long one.

What is so great about yoga? I've never really believed in the power of yoga, nor have I really understood it. What experiences have any of you had with yoga? Are they legit? How similar is what you get out of yoga to what you get out of meditation?
I try to meditate daily, and have found it to be very calming for the mind. This clarity of mind improves my functionability in my daily activities whether mental of physical. Not only that, but during meditation, I feel a profound sense of inner peace and I feel a phenomenal sense of expansiveness and sometime interconnectedness. Is yoga anything like that?
What does yoga have to offer that meditation doesn't?

I am not doing it; my thing is Qigong.
By the time Yogani rolled around I had had enough experiences seeking to realize what Yogani had done, but was far enough along with my Qigong to be satisfied and you don't want to mix the two. Even Qigong practitioners shouldn't mix one teacher's methods with another's. Again, the idea is to find a system.
