Participation Guidelines

Following are the guidelines which I suggest we follow…

  • Please post all comments, questions and feedback of a public nature in the comments section of this post.  This way all will benefit from the discussion.  Feel free to ask questions or discuss issues, as that is one of the main reasons for this particular class format.  Of course, you are free to email me as well if you would like the discussion to not be public.
  • If you like, you can indicate with a comment that you have completed your daily session.  Could be as short as “did it”, or of course could be questions, issues or more detailed feedback.  The hardest part with a daily yoga and meditation practice is establishing consistency and regularity and I think having to acknowledge that you completed your daily sadhana (spiritual work) will help in facilitating that.  In addition, your comments could inspire others as well. 
  • I will post all information regarding the class in the comments section below as well, so please check periodically for updates.
  • Before starting your daily yoga and meditation session, take a moment and tune in to your higher self for guidance and protection.  At the end of every session, visualize yourself and the world as you would like it to be.
  • Do the best you can and modify the class as you require.  It is more important to do something, than be overwhelmed or not do anything at all.
  • I wish you all a wonderful learning and transforming experience.

    Hi Wadjet,

    1- If you feel light headed, back off a bit especially from the Breath of Fire or other pranayamas. This will ensure that you develop your capacity safely and gently over time.

    2. Shaking of the body is quite common during meditation. It is not usually an awakening, it is generally due to cleansing of deep seated emotions that is taking place. As you come into the state of relaxed awareness in meditation, the body gets a chance to purge itself of suppressed emotions and negative energies, which tends to manifest itself in the shaking.

    It is good. Again, just don’t overdo so that the cleansing also doe not overwhelm you.

    Great to see you are establishing a consistent practice.

    I have been doing the Intro to kundalini-yoga classes for about 5 days now and have a couple of questions about the happening i experienced this week. First off around the 3rd day of doing the exercises i felt light-headed. Not during the exercises but all day. Why is this? And this morning during my meditation i felt by body shake uncontrollably like an engine.My body wasn’t hot though. Was i experiencing an awakening. If so how could that be I have only been taking classes for almost 3 week.

    Hey Alex,

    Either way is fine actually. Some yoga, breathing and stretching before meditation can actually help you sit better, and with greater wakefulness. Also, ending with meditation can put you in the right frame of mind for the rest of your day.

    On the other hand, meditating first, ensures your mind is most empty and least involved with your everyday problems and worries.

    I would almost suggest to make sure you are doing that which is most important to you at this time of your life first. So that it does not get skipped due to a lack of time.

    Yes, So-hum is fine to do instead of Zazen.

    Hey Anmol, how come yoga is before meditation? Shouldn’t yoga be done after to wake you up for the day? or is it that when you meditate after practicing yoga, that your body can assimilate the benefits better?
    Also, i’m currently doing So-Hum meditation, so is it ok to do that instead of zazen?
    Thanks, Alex :)

    Hi Staci,

    Glad you are enjoying the site. I remember my days in grad school, where unfortunately I spent almost all my time meditating… not good :-D.

    Yes you can absolutely split the practice up into its various aspects. Specially the yoga and meditation portions of this program. Yes, do try the meditation at night, it will help. Either of the two meditations in this program will help dissolve stress.

    Let me know your progress.

    Hey Ric,

    No it is perfectly fine to split the meditation and yoga into different sessions. Your plan of meditation in morning or night, and yoga in day is perfectly ok.

    Hi, I am interested in learning more about Kundalini yoga, and I would like to start your online class. I have been reading articles on your website off and on all day (I just found it), and I must say it is very impressive and useful. I am very inflexible (years of horseback riding, not enough stretching), especially in my lower body, and think yoga would be a great way to work on overall body flexibility and alignment. I am also a graduate student in college, and usually very stressed! I think the meditation might help me be more centered and lessen my stress level. Lastly, I would like to lose about 10-15 lbs (the “vanity” pounds, I guess) so I am thinking of trying your weight loss class after this one.

    One question, though, is it okay to split the practice into several pieces during the day? I don’t have much time in the morning, so I could probably only do 20-30 minutes most mornings; also, I have trouble falling asleep (too much stress!) so I was thinking some of the meditation might be more useful at night? What do you think?

    Again, great resource, thanks!!
    Staci

    Thanks Anmol. I was also wondering, since my environment is “always” bombarded with noise in the day, would it be alright if I meditated in the morning or at night and do yoga during the day, or should I follow up each yoga with meditation?

    Hi Ric,

    Any age is the right age to start yoga and meditation :-). To learn both yoga and meditation start with Course 101 (which is this course, Intro to Kundalini Yoga & Meditation).

    For most of the meditations, including those in this class, do them in silence. You can use music when doing the yoga though.

    Let me know your progress.

    Hi. I’d like to say that I appreciate your hard work and being able to do this all for free. I’m only 18 and I want to learn yoga. The only problem I have is that there is so much to do, I don’t know where to begin. I have started Class 100 but I would also like to do some yoga exercises. Can you tell me where to begin or can we just begin any class? Also, for meditation, would you suggest meditation music or silence. Thank you again and have a nice day.

    Hi Tracey,

    Great to know you are not only benefiting from, but also spreading the wisdom of yoga and meditation.

    You are well on the path to achieving your potential simply because you have chosen to teach. This decision, you will find, will demand that you master and live the subject matter yourself.

    If I can be of any help please feel free to ask and thank you for your generous feedback :-D.

    All Good Wishes,
    Anmol
