Kundalini Yoga Beginners Complete Set
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 1 is called “Basic Spinal Energy Series” – an easy practice designed to increase the flexibility of your spine. Youth can be defined by the range of movement of your spine – age is no excuse! Keep moving and maintain your youthful flexibility. All 26 vertebrae are stimulated in this set, resulting in increased mental clarity and memory function. It balances all 8 chakras and gives you an energy boost.
CLASS 2 is called “Kriya for Elevation” and is a beautiful way to tune up your physical body. Working internally and externally, it stimulates the lungs, organs of elimination and digestion, increases spine flexibility, circulation and balances the chakras.
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.
CLASS 4 is called “Awakening to your 10 Bodies”. The ten bodies are: Soul Body, Negative Mind, Positive Mind, Neutral Mind, Physical Body, Arc Line, Auric Body, Pranic Body, Subtle Body, and Radiant Body. This class will support you to clean and rebalance all of our bodies to leave you feeling refreshed and revitalised.
CLASS 5 is called “Kriya for Morning Sadhana” and is a beautiful kriya to get your energy moving. It will stretch and strengthen your back, and get the energy moving along your spine. It is an excellent series of postures to do after you wake up in the morning or before bed at night.
CLASS 6 is called “Kriya for Disease Resistance”. It focuses on building your physical strength, improve your digestion and elimination, strengthening your metabolic balance, and hence building your resistance to disease.
CLASS 7 is called “Pituitary Gland Series” and is designed to cleanse and balance the pituitary gland, which is known as the ‘Master Gland’ as it controls the entire glandular system which includes the thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals, pancreas and reproductive glands.
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.
These classes are beginners level and in total the seven (7) classes are 471 minutes in length.
