News Lungs and Circulation
WEEK 2 – News Lungs and Circulation – The breath and its flow in the body can determine your emotional base. You feel full of energy and in control when the lungs and circulation are in excellent shape. This set rebuilds the lungs and improves circulation throughout the body. It is a rhythmical and short kriya for intermediate students or for enthusiastic beginners who are in good condition. You can practice this kriya 22 minutes a day and rebuild your system. It will prepare your lungs for an excellent practice of Kundalini Yoga pranayama.There are 9 exercises in the sequence. You can complete the main kriya in less than 30 minutes.
Adi Mantra – I bow to the Creative Wisdom. I bow to the Divine Teacher within. This mantra is used to access the divine flow and self knowledge within each of us. We chant it three times. Once for ourselves, once for the people in your class and once for the greater world.
Kapalabhati Pranayama – A forced exhale through the nose, followed by an automatic inhale through the nose. The Inhale and Exhale are of equal force. This forced exhale may feel like you are blowing your nose, it is a good idea to have a tissue nearby, especially during a morning practice.
Five strong inhale breaths and Five strong exhale breaths ALL takes place through the nose. You can imagine that your nose is a straw and take the five breaths until your lungs are full all the way to your clavicles, your collar bones.
Kriya for New Lungs and Circulation
I like this kriya because it begins with standing poses which you can work into more balance poses if you like, taking a little more time. The chant Har Har HarHaree is a motivator too. Stay with it! And the sequence also works on the core. You’ve heard me say “the juice” is in the breath. What I mean is your breath work powers your practice. Your sense of well-being comes from a deep connection to your constant companion, your breath. Sat Nam.

Nicole S I have attended live in-person, live virtual, and pre-recorded Kundalini sessions with Rocky. I like Kundalini because of the opportunity to explore and challenge myself in a unique way. Rocky is a warm, welcoming, humble and intuitive teacher. There’s a reason this hour and a half experience is a part of my regular practice!
Denis Moreen - Pianist, Music Director “… it was stunning, my friend! You did Cole real justice. Your up-tempos bounced and your ballads flowed. I particularly liked the introspective slower motions of several songs – nothing unhurried, everything thoughtful. I also was taken with your immediate and easy rapport with the audience. Most important, the audience was given complete honesty both in your singing and in your talking…”

Suzanne What a gift to be invited to share to share the rarified space with this wonderful group. While I have studied yoga for a couple years, I was new to Kundalini when I began classes with you, Rocky.
