An 11 Day Practice of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation to Connect Within

There is more and more coming at us.  The demand for rapidity in change is only increasing.  We need easy ways to cut through and remember who we are.  We need to recover this sense of ourselves over and over and more and more easily, because the change we all seek is on the inside.

We live in a web of nature and a web of life, and a group of people can have tremendous impact.  As Yogi Bhajan said “1 + 1 = 11”.

If holding an attitude of loving kindness towards a glass of water for ten minutes a day for ten days can change its molecular structure, 20-50 people doing a 31 minute practice for 11 days can change a lot.

Here’s the idea:

In my class at Radiance Yoga in Alexandria, VA on Sunday, January 21, 2018, we’ll develop this theme and take 31 minutes to do Nabhi Kriya and Kirtan Kriya (SA TA NA MA) meditation.  Those who want to can commit to doing that practice each day for ten more days, a total of 11.  We will also do the practice again as a part of my class on Sunday, January 28.

For those who cannot be present for the classes, here are the kriyas we will practice together.

Nabhi Kriya (https://www.3ho.org/kundalini-yoga/chakras/nabhi-kriya)

(Do the first exercise for 3 ½ minutes, the second and third for 1 ½ minutes each, the fourth for 5 ½ minutes, and both parts of the fifth and sixth exercises for 1 minute each.  Then do at least a 3 minute deep relaxation.)

Kirtan Kriya (https://www.3ho.org/3ho-lifestyle/health-and-healing/kirtan-kriya-sa-ta-na-ma-meditation)

(Do each of the six parts of the meditation for 2 minutes.)

The commitment is doing the practice each day for 11 days and then doing something to “make someone’s day” each of the 11 days; such as reaching out to one friend, taking someone for tea, paying something forward…

AND, if anyone would like, you can continue the practices, even indefinitely.  For those who choose to continue for 40 days, a powerful number, the last day would be March 1st, a full moon.

So please come and join us on Sunday mornings January 21 and 28 at Radiance Yoga in Alexandria—8:30 am, or join us virtually on Facebook by liking my teaching page (https://www.facebook.com/kartarkhalsateachings/) or join in the discussion on the Facebook group devoted to this practice (https://www.facebook.com/groups/547925908896609/).
