It’s dark, it’s cold, it’s raining and all you want to do is curl up in bed – This is actually one of the things I enjoy doing. But even more so, I love taking my home yoga practice to the next level. This kriya (yoga set) is perfect to get your energy moving and connect to your inner fire during the colder months.
I have grown to love the colder seasons – Maybe I’ve been living in the Uk for too long! But I take this time as space for more creativity and indoor space to really nurture my Self – through food, yoga at home and cozy nights in with people I love to connect with.
My home yoga practice can sometimes fluctuate, as with life in general! But there are a few tried and tested yoga sequences that I keep close by, which keep me returning to feel my energy flowing in a stronger vibrant way!
Kundalini Yoga – Surya Kriya
This is one of my most loved kriyas – It can be done any time of the year, but I especially enjoy it when it’s starting to get chilly outside.
This kriya is named after the energy of the sun. When you have a lot of “sun energy”, you do not get cold; you are energetic, expressive, extroverted and enthusiastic. It is the energy of purification. It holds the weight down. It aids digestion. It makes the mind clear, analytic and action-oriented.
The exercises systematically stimulate the positive pranic force and the Kundalini energy itself. This should occasionally be in your regular sadhana practice to build the strength of your body and your ability to focus on many tasks.
