Cold Showers & So Purkh

I’m a day late sharing my sadhana, but this has been my routine.

A cold shower. This sets me in motion. After I take my shower, I feel warm, comfortable, creative and ready to go.

Chanting So Purkh in Gurmukhi and English(as many times as possible). This brings me to tears. This is my biggest commitment. I chant it as many times as I can.

I just recently found this video by Nirinjan Kaur…it quickly resonated with me as exactly what I needed to connect to:

Stretch pose. I actually started intuitively moving my body and realized I was in stretch pose with my hands under my butt. I did breath of fire in this position. I intend to do stretch pose regularly for core strength and 3rd chakra activation.

Spinal Kriya. Since I can easily remember the parts of this kriya without needing to look at a book or computer screen I usually do this kriya in the dark or teach it to my girls.

Adi Shakti meditation. Another that I remember easily and do with my toddler and preschool age daughters. This is fun and easy.

Transformational breathwork/dance. For trauma release, releasing extra emotions, extra grounding, creativity and a sense of being empowered.

Followed by melon. For simplicity and pleasure. For beauty and sweetness.

Marked with breaks of bliss, amazement, smiling contentedly, head nodding and releasing tears.

What did your Sadhana look like today or this week?

What theme are you exploring or what are you gleaning from your practice in your daily explorations?

Can you show your sadhana space, music or mantra?

If you’re teaching sadhana or doing sadhana with others what is the dynamic like?

Even better what did you eat before, during or after sadhana(especially if fruity!)

I’d love to know.

Kundalini Yoga Music Picks

Practicing kundalini yoga at home can be a delicate practice.  Especially if you are not living alone.  Music is important, especially during sadhana.  This morning I discovered a new favorite and I blissed out to a tried and true classic.  I think these two could make up a pretty diverse session.  I listened to a few others during my sadhana and focused on chanting.

This is great for a warm-up or active kriya.

This is great for slower-paced kriyas, meditations, pranayama and deep relaxation.

I also like to choose chants that my 4-year-old can sing to and Ek Ong Kar is easy and pleasing.  It also produces those tingly sensations that I love so much about Sadhana.  A great start to any day!

This morning: Spinal Kriya & So Purkh
