relationship, their powers.  They found that the life of a human is totally based on these chakras.  They developed into a whole
science.  This total science gave birth to Kundalini Yoga.  That is how Kundalini Yoga was born.” – Yogi Bhajan

The human body is a complex system encompassing vast energy systems that are not immediately perceptible with our
limited eyes.  The chakras are energy vortices powered by prana,or life force.  By clearing the energy blocks from our

3) Third Chakra, the Solar Plexus (Manipura):   Will, action

Asana: Stretch Pose

Lift the head and the feet six inches o the ground.  Bring the arms up, palms facing.  Stare at the toes.  Do breath of re.

4) Fourth Chakra, the Heart Chakra (Anahata):  Love

Asana:  Camel Pose

If full camel pose is too much of a stretch for you, place your hands in the small of your back for support and arch
backwards with your head.

5) Fifth Chakra, the Throat Chakra (Vishuddha):   Communication

Asana:  Cobra Pose

Lie on the ground, hands under the shoulders, palms at on ground.  Push up, lifting the heart and letting the head

ground as you arch your head back.

7) Seventh Chakra, the Crown Chakra (Sahasrara):   Transcendence, The Seat of the Soul

Asana: Sat Kriya

Sit on the heels.  Stretch the arms over the head with elbows straight, hugging the ears.  Interlace all ngers except the
index nger, which you extend.  Men cross the right thumb over the left; women cross the left thumb over the right. 
Chant “Sat nam” at a constant rhythm.  As you chant “Sat” pull in the navel; as you chant “nam” release the navel.  Draw
the energy up the spine. Eyes closed.  (3-31 minutes)

Sat Kriya is a complete Kundalini yoga workout for all of the chakras.  It is an amazing and powerful practice, complete
and entire in one asana and mudra.  Doing Sat Kriya everyday for 40 days will have a profound e ect on the function of
your chakras.  It speci cally works on waking up the Kundalini energy and helping it move up your spine through your
chakra system.

No chakra stands alone; the chakra system is holistic and interrelated.  You cannot work on one chakra with Kundalini
Yoga without addressing the needs of the rest.  The Lower Triangle (the rst, second and third chakras) deals with
elimination, while the Upper Triangle ( fth, sixth, and seventh chakras) focuses on accumulation.  They meet at the fourth
chakra, the heart chakra, an essential point of balance between these forces.

There is another kriya that uses Sat Kriya to work speci cally on each chakra called Sat Kriya for the Chakras. This
wonderful kriya lets you do variations of Sat Kriya in asanas speci cally a ecting each chakra.  It helps to clear the body
for the rise of Kundalini energy.

Chakra meditation may also be used to open up your chakra centers and improve the
Reply
ow of positive psychic energy in your body. During meditation you simply concentrate
on each of the chakras starting with the rst one and working your way up to your crown
chakra. By imagining the ow of energy from chakra to chakra, you are helping to remove
blockages in each energy center that might be causing pain and disease.
