Sequence for the Negative Mind (2nd Light Body)

Class Description

This kirya (cleansing practice) is for balancing the negative mind, which is the second of the ten light bodies of kundalini yoga. The negative mind, when seen in a positive light, is a protective mind that scans our environment to keep us safe.

Class begins with a kundalini sun salutation. After that, you'll begin the kriya, which includes sufi grinds, an energizing practice called "crow squat walk," a lotus/cobra hybrid, eye exercises to promote clear sight, whole-body breath of fire practices (which go beyond doing this pranayama from seated), and more.

You'll wrap up in a seated pose, hands to heart.

Be sure to tune in with the Adi Mantra before you begin: Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo.
