Volume 1: Energize
Do you need a pick-me-up? Kundalini Yoga is great for gathering, focusing, and smoothing out your energy. Many of the kriyas and meditations for increased vitality gradually build energy within our system, circulate the energy we already have, or release the blocks keeping us from our own energy.
The goal is to use the energy that is always naturally with us. Vitality is a universal gift of consciousness, caliber, and strength. Try one of the pranayamas and/or the kriya below to get energized!
Volume 2: Meditation Basics
Contrary to popular thought, meditation doesn't mean you stop your thoughts and make your mind a blank. Meditation is a cleansing process. The mind generates millions of thoughts throughout the day - many stored in your subconscious.
When you sit quietly and turn your focus inward, all kinds of thoughts start bubbling up into your awareness. When you become aware of thoughts arising, simply invite yourself to bring your focus back to the specified breath rhythm, mantra, posture, and/or movement, without judging or giving those thoughts any energy. In this way you clear the mind of unwanted thoughts that lead to stress and tension.
If you are new to meditation, or think you can't meditate, Kundalini meditations offer so many different options. Try some out if you haven't already, and find your favorite techniques. Wipe away the day's worries and anxieties.
