Kundalini Yoga Beginners Class 3
Beautiful Kundalini yoga teacher Siri Gopal Kaur has compiled this series of seven classes suitable for all levels of ability – from beginners to experienced yogis.
CLASS 3 is called “Surya (Sun) Kriya” – it works to enhance your sun energy. When you have a lot of sun energy you don’t get cold, you are energetic, expressive, extroverted and enthusiastic. It’s the energy of purification, it hold the weight down, it aids digestion, it makes the mind clear, analytic and action-orientated. The exercises in the class will systematically stimulate the positive pranic force and the kundalini energy itself.
If new to Kundalini Yoga start with the minimum suggested repetition time for each posture, slowly increasing the times (to go no longer than the maximum given) as you become more familiar with the practice.
Each class begins with warm ups, preparing for the kriya (the main section of the class) to be practiced. Kriyas in Kundalini Yoga are set sequences of movements, designed to work on specific aspects of your being. For example, there are many different kriyas, each with a different focus – from spine flexibility, strength, weight loss, cleansing liver, mental clarity, clearing the chakras, etc.
Kundalini Yoga incorporates pranayama (breathwork), mantra (chanting), dynamic movement, mudra and meditative focus to balance your energetic body and fine tune your physical body. Kundalini Yoga is said to be “the mother of all yoga”, the yoga of awareness.
This is a beginners level class and is 76 minutes in length.
