WEEK 6 – Kriya for Kidney & Adrenals – This is a potent sequence of exercises which primarily engages the breathing apparatus in order to supercharge the bloodstream with oxygen, and direct that oxygen-rich blood through the kidneys to balance and regulate the adrenal gland activity. The adrenal glands are the glands that process low-level, on-going stress!

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.

A powerful chant bringing prosperity and power. We roll the “r” once like a Spanish “r.” These chants are ancient vibrational languages from Sanskrit or Gurmukhi. It is important to move your tongue and lips and make the sounds!

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

SONGS in this Kriya include:

I Am So Blessed
Words and music: Karen Drucker – Inspired by Rev. Mark Vierra

PRANAYAMA – BREATHING in this Kriya includes:

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.

Nadi Shodhana Pranayama


Kriya for Kidney & Adrenals
While this Kriya is more on the active side, I love how it takes the body on a robust journey of strength and vitality. After the warmup, the Kriya starts strong, invigorates and challenges throughout, and gradually drops us down into a very centered, focused space of surrender. For me, this is an ideal Kriya for those times when I would benefit from remembering my strength and reminding my mind/body of what is possible. Sat Nam.
