Hello friends! We're excited to kick off a week-long series on Kundalini Yoga, which a powerful and transformative practice that combines physical postures, breathwork, and meditation to awaken and activate the energy at the base of the spine. Kundalini Yoga has a more spiritual and philosophical focus than normal yoga and is based on the belief that we all have an untapped inner energy or "kundalini" that lies dormant at the base of the spine. The practice of Kundalini Yoga is thought to bring about profound changes in one's physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, and can help individuals tap into their full potential and live a more authentic, fulfilling life.
Now, let's get into a one-week practice plan for Kundalini Yoga. This plan includes a variety of classic poses and can be adapted to fit your individual needs and goals. Here's what you'll need to get started:
A comfortable and breathable outfit
A yoga mat or a comfortable surface to practice on
A yoga bolster or blanket for support (optional)
Day1: Sit-Stand Spine Pose
Benefits: Releases tension in the middle and upper back. It also maintains the flow of spinal fluid and stimulates kundalini energy throughout the spine.
Procedures: Sit on your heels. Inhale, bend your spine forward while aligning your shoulder blades, and exhale, pushing your spine back. You can close your eyes or open them. Finally, inhale, pull the root lock for a few seconds, and exhale. Practice for 2 to 3 minutes.
Day2: Sit forward Bend Pose
Benefits: This pose can stretch the nerves of life very well. It starts at the heel, passes through the sciatic nerve, and then runs through the entire back (lower, middle, and upper back).
Procedures: Sit on the right heel and extend the left leg forward. Move chest to left thigh and hold for 2 or 3 minutes. Then switch legs and practice. It is also possible to bring the legs straight forward. Do it 2 or 3 times on each side.
Day3: Camel Pose
Benefits: This pose stimulates the reproductive organs.
Procedures: Kneel down, tighten your glutes, and place your palms up on your back (kidney area). Next, push your hips forward and your head back. You can stay here, or put your hands on your heels. Push your hips forward. Keep breathing evenly.
Day4: Lunge Variation Pose
Benefits: This is the best yoga pose for women. It stretches the front muscles and opens the hips.
Procedures: Standing, right leg bent forward, left leg straight, heel off the ground. Extend your right arm forward as if shooting an arrow. With the right thumb pointing back, the left arm is bent back, with the elbow parallel to the ground. You should feel a stretch in your chest. Hold this position.
Day5: Baby Pose
Benefits: This is an excellent pose for relaxation. It aids in digestion and brings Kundalini energy from the lower regions to the higher regions.
Postures: Sit on your heels, bend forward, and touch your forehead to the floor. Place your arms by your sides, palms facing up. You can also extend your arms forward with your palms facing down.
Day6: Bow Pose
Benefits: This pose opens the rib cage, expands the lungs, and is a great pose for those looking to straighten a curved spine.
Procedures: Lie on your stomach, bend your knees and grab your ankles. Lift the torso up. Tilt your head back and lift your legs. Keep breathing deeply.
Day7: Locust Pose
Benefits: This pose increases spinal strength and flexibility, especially in the middle and upper spine. It can also relieve problems such as irregular menstruation, cramps and backache. Corrects bad posture and improves the function of the liver and spleen.
Procedures: Lie prone. Place your hands in fists on the groin area. The chin is on the ground. Next, lift your legs up and hold. Keep breathing deeply.
