“Where there is love there is no question.” Yogi Bhajan
Our year adventure exploring the foundations of Bound Lotus Kriya continues this month with specific yoga sets and meditations to prepare for the behind the back bind utilized in Bound Lotus Kriya. This week experience how variations of cobra pose can increase flexibility, support proper rotation of the shoulders, and strengthen the heart center. This class is inspired by the mantra Chattr Chakkr Vartee. We will use this frequency in meditation to experience victory. Yogi Bhajan commented, "Chattr Chakkr Vartee is the mantra for the heart center, it gives direct energy to it. When you are sinking, if you know this mantra and can sing it, you can totally recuperate yourself.” Everyone is welcome.
About Bound Lotus Kriya
Many years ago I took my first yoga workshop with Mahan Kirn at Summer Solstice. I was immediately taken with her story and a uniquely challenging gem known as Bound Lotus Kriya (Click here to read her story). At first glance the physical aspects of this kriya can awaken the negative mind eliciting a “I can’t do that because (fill in the blank)”. For others, the ego takes charge often pushing the physical body past its limits causing injuries. Sadly, both responses limit our access to the powerful healing benefits of this ancient practice.
With this in mind, I want to invite everyone on a one year journey to prepare and explore the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of this kriya. Each month we will focus on a theme that supports not only a balanced Kundalini Yoga practice, but that which makes the impossible possible.
