Adi Mantra

Kriya for Inner Vitality and Stamina

This time of year is always so exciting - I love being cosy, catching up with family, friends and feeling gratitude for all the blessings and love I have in my life. Yay! There is a lot to be thankful for, and this time of year really brings it home as to how full my cup is. 

A full cup usually means a full life, and a full life can mean a lot of demands, not just during the season but throughout the year.

Below I am going to take you through a 15 minute Kundalini Kriya* that works on our internal systems to invoke our inner vitality and bring stamina into the body and mind that is so needed right now!
 

Since it's a super busy time for us all, we could all do with a bit of vitality and stamina to get us through with gusto, on top of our game, no?

I have been doing it myself for the past 7 days and its effects are immediate and incredible. I have shortened the length of each posture slightly, for the sake of time, but the effects still hit the spot. I really am super excited to share this with you!

All you need is 15 minutes and an "I can" attitude and you'll feel the vitality and stamina immediately.

It begins by stimulating the Navel Point energy and releasing the reserve energy that is stored there. It brings energy to all the meridians in the body and then the exercises systematically move the flow of energy from the solar plexus up to the throat. The Kriya* then guides the flow to the higher centres and glands. Finally, it opens up the superhighway of the "sushmana" (central channel through which flows prana or life force) and the spine. Wooooo!! The energy is totally unleashed within you. The Kriya ends with a short naval meditation for healing that creates the effect of the universe vibrating in every cell of your body. Awesome!

It's suitable for beginners and experienced student so grab your mat, an open mind and off we go!

Tuning in with the Adi Mantra

In Kundalini Yoga we use Mantra a lot. In fact, at the beginning of every class or personal practice we "tune in" with the Adi Mantra, chanted 3 times.

"Adi" means "primal" or "first" and is the first technology of the Kundalini student or teacher. The meaning of the Mantra itself basically means I bow to the subtle divine wisdom, the divine teacher within. It is a meditation and a state of consciousness. It is the link between you as an individual ego and you as part of the infinite.

Chanting this mantra plugs you in to the universe and so you can do your practice leaving your ego at the door with your shoes.

This centring makes it easier for intuition, commitment and love to flow and be transmitted to you and through you. Consciousness and compassion are merged and all who hear are elevated and you have a sense of grounding come through you.

As I create more content on my website I will be sharing a lot more Kundalini Yoga you'll be hearing this mantra a lot, since it's done before each set. It might feel a bit strange at first and you may feel a bit self conscious, I know I did, but you get used to it and it really does work to centre you and bring you into your practice. 

I'm at it every day!

Since I have a daily Kundalini Yoga practice then Im tuning in with this mantra everyday. It feels good and to feel the vibration of the mantra resonate through my body at the beginning of each class or personal practice . I am immediately reminded that I'm a small but significant part (we all are) of an amazing, infinite, vibrating universe and this sense of awe and presence give me focus and verve to devote to a great practice. Join in with it in my Kundalini videos and see for yourself.  Thank You!
