Reading Time: 14 minutes
Time keeps ticking — and there’s nothing we can do about it. Now that we are living in the Aquarian Age, it can be hard to keep track of everything we need to do. Engaging in the following kriya will help you shake off the stress of the modern world and relax.
A core part of the following kriya involves shaking. There’s a reason for that. This activity interacts with the parasympathetic nervous system to create positive change within it.
Benefits of this Kriya
- Enhances the parasympathetic nervous system
- Helps you manage the pressure of time
- Increases feelings of mindfulness and relaxation
How to do this Kriya
When you are ready to start this kriya, you should find a space in which to practice. You may find that a quiet room in your home is the perfect setting. Lay down a mat and begin:
Step 1: Body Shake
Start by sitting in Easy Pose, or whatever position is comfortable. When you are ready, begin shaking every part of your body. There is no right or wrong way to shake here.
You can create a rhythm that works for you and move every limb. Allow yourself to get tired and your cheeks to go red. Continue with this for 15 minutes.
Step 2: Standing Shake
Move swiftly into a standing position. Next, shake your hips from side to side as you move. Make sure that your feet stay on the ground and move smoothly. Continue for 8 minutes.
Step 3: Seated Twist
Return once again to Easy Pose, or another seated position. Bring your arms above your head and move your palms together. Twist to the right and then the left vigorously. Continue for 4 minutes.
Step 4: Single leg push-up
Move onto your hands and knees. Lift your left leg slightly. Bend your elbows so that your head touches the floor and come back up. Continue this movement for 52 repetitions. Switch legs and then do the same thing — 52 repetitions once again.
Step 5: Camel pose
Get onto your knees and then observe Camel Pose. Move your hands so that they are touching your heels. Stand on your knees and then get back down. Repeat 55 times.
Step 6: 90-Degree Legs
Start by lying down on your back. Bring your knees up to your chest and put your hands under your hips. Next, stretch the legs out and raise them up to 90 degrees. When you have done that, return to the first position with them near your chest. Repeat 108 times.
Step 7: Sit-ups
Stay on your back and bring both of your hands over your heart center. Sit up and bring your forehead toward your knees. Return back down. Repeat this for 26 repetitions.
The final part of this Kundalini Yoga kriya is relaxation. Get into Corpse Pose to begin. Allow the weight to be drained from your body as you completely relax and meditate. Continue in this state of sheer bliss for 8 minutes and then finish.
