Basic Breath Series: May 13th- June 21st
For our first 40 Day Sadhana, we will be practicing the Basic Breath Series.
This is such a beautiful practice for building lung capacity and our pranic power.
As we practice consistently, we teach our body what it is to truly and deeply relax. You may notice muscles letting go that you weren’t aware were tight. As we let go of this tension, we release pent up toxins, stories, and we also unleash a flow of energy that was previously blocked.
Admittedly, this is not the shortest of practices at just over 20 minutes in length. However, it’s not a particularly hard one. Once we commit, finding 20 minutes in a day is not impossible, most especially when it provides such clarity, peace, and connection to truth.
You will get a taste of what it is to breathe through different channels, which is sweet when first familiarizing yourself with Kundalini Yoga.
This may be something you make space to do either first thing in the morning or right before bed. I dare you to wake up a half an hour to 45 minutes earlier, start with the warm up (or not) and dive into this.

Quick n Dirty Practice
While not the same as the Basic Breath Series, this practice was filmed for those needing a shorter practice to commit to.
The idea of a 40 day sadhana is that we use the same kriya for 40 consecutive days. That said, something is better than nothing! So if all you have is 10-15 minutes in a day, this should suffice nicely. This is also a good practice to use to familiarize yourself with some common Kundalini asanas. They are simple and subtle and powerful.
