Sat Nam beautiful Souls.
Thank you to everyone who joined this Monday’s class. It was very special indeed and thank you for the lovely feedback.
It’s wonderful to hear that some of you are practicing Kundalini Yoga at home and on the move in your busy lives. If you would like to start a daily practice or have any questions about KY please get in touch. Wahe Guru.
A note about Monday’s class (14 January).
If you were to ask Kundalini Yoga teachers the question “If you could teach only one Kundalini Yoga practice what would that be?”
The answer you would most probably hear back is Sat Kriya.
KY has 100’s of Kriya’s to choose from. A Kriya is like a yoga set. A set of exercises for a desired outcome and the number of exercises can range from 2 to 27 exercises in one set.
However there is one exercise that stands alone that forms a complete yoga set. A Kriya on its own and that is Sat Kriya.
Very very powerful.💫
Sat Kriya uses the Apana energy which is elimination and Prana energy which is ourlife force energy and brings those energies to the navel, creates heat, the Kundalini energy starts to uncoil and travel from the lower chakras up to the higher chakras .
What does that mean in layman’s terms?
Chakras are vortex’s of energy but they are also states of consciousness. Consciousness is how you view the world. To give you an example of someone who has trapped energy in the first chakra they could be overly concerned with survival. How do I get a job,? How do I keep my job? How will I pay my bills? Put food on my table? All survival stuff. Or if somebody has trapped energy in the second chakra they will see the whole world through a sexual lens and so on. That can create a very limited view of your world if you are coming from those lower states of consciousness. It like being in a tiny Mini car on the motorway driving, you look to your left and all you can see is a big lorry, in front a big SUV and to the right of you and behind you other large vehicles obscuring your view. Your view is very limited. Sat Kriya raises your consciousness, so its like being up on a double decker bus, you are on the very top and have a 360 view of what’s going on around you expands your awareness.
All yoga works but Kundalini Yoga works fast, That’s the beauty of the practice. The Sat Kriya practice can completely shift your consciousness. You can wake up in the morning and just think the world is the pits, I feel so negative I don’t even want to be with myself, I’m just going to go back to bed. You can take that state of consciousness, do Sat Kriya just for 3 minutes and Wahe Guru you can completely lift and elevate yourself out of that state.
It’s a beautiful tool to have and we will be experiencing Sat Kriya in Monday’s class as well as our relaxation which is important as it rejuvenates the body and helps release stress.
We will then practice the Adi Shakti Mantra meditation which tunes one into the frequency of the Divine Mother, and to the primal protective, generating energy. It is said that chanting it eliminates fears and fulfils desires. It will help you to be free of the insecurities which block freedom of action to create your best life.
Blessings, joy and alignment for the rest of the week.
Take very good care and please let me know if you have any questions.
