At the beginning of a kundalini yoga class, to 'tune in', chant Ong Na Mo that calls upon our own inner wisdom as well as on the 'Golden chain' everyone who has practised taught or followed Kundalini yoga over the ages.
"Ong Na Mo c'est le mantra nous utilisons de faire une connection ou une liaison avec notre maître d'intérieur ou notre soi supérieur ou notre âme.
A little more on Ong Namo
"ONG NA MO GURU DEV NA MO is the mantra we use in Kundalini yoga to tune us to the frequency of our higher self or inner master. We begin each practice of Kundalini yoga with this mantra. This sacred mantra opens us to our spiritual channel. It also links us to all the spiritual masters who perfected this sacred science. By establishing a link with the Masters of Kundalini yoga, we are protected as we practice this sacred technology, as well as guided in our practice. The transmission of information and consciousness to students from Master teachers who have preceded us is referred to as the GOLDEN CHAIN. Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, who is the first to openly share this technology with the world, is a living connection to the golden chain."
Yoga Kundalini: Mantras d'Introduction
A little more protection
After Ong Na Mo, you can optionally add the Protection mantra, Aad Guray Nameh, which means in Sanskrit language :
"I bow to the primal wisdom, I bow to true wisdom through all ages, I bow to the great unseen wisdom"
To end on a positive note
To close after the relaxation there's a song 'May the long time sun shine upon you,'
You might think it is simply a Hippie Dippie singalong but the reason is to send good wishes out to all.
Lastly, 'Sat Nam' called a Seed mantra, three times, sweetly from the heart.

May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you and the true light within you guide your way on.
Que le soleil brille en tout temps sur toi - tout amour de toi - et la lumière pure dans ton coeur - guide ton chemin

In the yoga philosophy the mind is not simply to be followed in all its brilliance in fact a wise thought is that the brain without engagement of the heart, is a dangerous thing. But in terms of mastering our mind, then it's like training a monkey. So a mantra as well as having a powerful resonance and historic spiritual basis, also helps guide thoughts to a positive wellbeing and are often used in meditations.
