Week #3 – March 29-April 4, 2020
Kriya for Disease Resistance and Sat Kriya

Overview

WEEK 3 – Kriya for Disease Resistance and Sat Kriya – To avoid persistent colds and illness, it is essential to keep digestion and elimination functioning well. Add to this a strong metabolic balance and you will have heartiness. This kriya develops these capacities. It gives physical strength and builds disease resistance. You can do these 10 exercises in about 30 minutes. This video begins with the Kriya without a warm up, so do a few cat-cows or downward facing dogs if your spine is not warmed up.

CHANTS in this Kriya include:

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.

Inhaling Sat, exhaling Nam (pronounced sut nahm) – 3 minutes. Translation: My Truth is my Identity. Inhale Sat. Exhale Nam. This is the reverse of what we usually do when we breathe. We are inhaling while saying, “Sat/Sut” while we draw the belly to the spine. As we relax we say, “Nam” on the Exhale as the belly expands and pushes out.

Closing song of all Kundalini Yoga classes worldwide.
May the long time sun
Shine upon you
All love surround you
And the pure light within you
Guide your way on

ROCKY’S TAKEAWAY

Kriya for Disease Resistance and Sat Kriya
This kriya/sequence works all the chakras/the subtle body. And the stomach pumps are a valuable exercise to strengthen the core. The “elephant walk” near the end is quite memorable and fun! This is an ideal kriya for those times when you will benefit from remembering you are always stronger than you think and reminding your mind, body and spirit of what is possible. Sat Nam.
