Kundalini Session Format

  • We use the following Mantra to begin the class by “tuning in”:
    Ong (Infinite Creative)
    Namo (I call on that energy)
    Guru (transforming wisdom)
    Dev (subtle energy)
    Namo (I call on that energy)
  • The main “kriya” (set of Kundalini Yoga exercises) begins.  Each  exercise usually lasts from 3 to 7 minutes.  The kriya will rejuvenate a  component of your mind / body / spiritual system.  It could be a particular  muscle group, your glandular system, nervous system, organs or your mind.  At  the end of the kriya you will be consolidated into a new and healthier physical  and mental state.
  • Deep Relaxation follows the kriya.  In Kundalini Yoga it is as  important to relax as it is to move the body.  This is when your body is able to  integrate the positions you have just practiced and heal itself. 
  • Meditation.  Your body will be transformed as a result of the  kriya.  Your mind and emotions will now become calm and clear by directing your attention.  You will sense and develop your “quiet mind” and your ability to concentrate. 
  • Closing.  After loosening the muscles and raising your energy, we will project that feeling of vitality to others by closing with the following blessing:
    “May the long time sun shine upon you
    All love surround you
    And the pure light within you
    Guide your way on.”
