I have always admired the introspection, self-awareness and commitment to personal development that comes from the teachings of Kundalini Yoga and from the people in our dear community. In a world where people are always looking for an escape, it is refreshing to find people that are willing to look at parts of themselves and work on it over an extended period of time. Kundalini Yoga is an amazing tool for personal development and transformation. There are kriyas and meditations for just about anything you can think of. With the 1,000’s of kriyas and meditations that Yogi Bhajan taught in Kundalini yoga, how do you pick the right one for your own personal sadhana? Here are some tips...
1. Siddh Shiva: Whenever you have grief, do this exercise. It gets rid of centuries old grief.
Position A. Sit with crossed legs, eyes wide OPEN (don't meditate). Elbows bent down by sides, upper arms by the sides and forearms parallel to the ground & right above each leg, with the palms open & facing up and placed right above the knees.
Position B. Sort of curve the arms up so the hands bounce up to the shoulders. As you do this, the tongue goes out AS FAR AS POSSIBLE! (very important to affect the subconscious & get rid of grief). Return to position A, and the tongue goes back into the mouth, mouth closes, and the arms go back down. Do all this POWERFULLY with the breath. Inhale through the nose as you go into position A and exhale through the mouth as you go into position B. Breathe HEAVILY! Listen to the tape: "Se Saraswati" by Nirinjan Kaur & Guru Prem Singh. Do it about seven minutes total.
End #1: Inhale and hold the breath in. Press the tongue against the upper palate as hard as you can for 20 seconds. Exhale. Repeat this process two more times (3 times total) then relax for 3 minutes.

The word “human” comes from the Sanskrit “hu” which means “light”, and ”man” which means “mind”. According to the ancient technology of Yoga, we all have ten hues, minds and bodies. Each of these bodies has eight chakras, three conditions, five elements, a unique physiology, and a related psychology. When you learn to know your self in this way and experience others with this increased awareness, you become a more authentic, compassionate and insightful healer, teacher, artist, parent, and partner. Through the study of these bodies, you can learn how to offer an organic prescription of Yoga postures, meditations, breathing techniques, personal management, lifestyle, and communication to improve any area of life...

Let’s face it. Some of the stuff of Kundalini yoga is pretty daunting: three minutes of stretch pose, nine minutes of the pranayama Breath of Fire with Lion’s Paws, thirty one minutes of Sat Kriya. If you’re like me, it takes some internal convincing to gear up to do one of these strenuous, challenging feats. So, I tend to appreciate the practices that are easy-to-do but nonetheless effective. Right and left nostril breathing exercises are in this category. They can be done anytime, anywhere — free of dread...read more
Kundalini Yoga is one of the spiritual types of yoga that goes beyond the physical performance of asanas. With its emphasis on breathing, meditation and chanting - Kundalini Yoga creates a conscious connection with the Divine by removing all the obstacles and fluctuations of the mind. It raises the energy of our inner self to a higher frequency and opens our awareness to realize the ultimate peace. Kundalini lies at the base of the spine and is represented as a coiled serpent. As the Kundalini energy is awakened, it moves up from the base of the spine from Muladhara Chakra to the Sahasrara Chakra located at the top of the head.
