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 Malavika,

    I don’t suggest deliberately chewing on scenarios and thoughts which create negative reactions. Let it happen at it’s own pace as much as possible. I know replaying it will help diminish it’s impact over time, but still life is hard enough without us consciously creating emotional storms.

    When the feeling do come up though, then yes just observe them carefully, understand them silently and let them go. Finish with them as best you can.

    Best,

    Hi Malavika,

    Neither of these two problems are uncommon. Are you doing the counting? That should help you stop the drifting. For battling sleep make sure you are keeping a good posture and also, use cold water to refresh yourself before starting. Sleep is a common problem and you will have to battle it on and off during meditation.

    Hi Anmol,
    I have one more question!:
    You mentioned that there will be a time during Meditation where ones’ subconscious thoughts will come up and this time can be very uncomfortable/painful etc.. When I am ‘observing my thoughts’ I sometimes deliberately come up with issues i know I will react to negatively in some way and try and dispel the anger/pain by allowing myself to feel the emotions attached to a particular memory and then I try and let it go after not too long. (At this time, I usually feel a lump in my throat or a tightening in my throat.) Is this what I should be doing? sitting with the discomfort and then trying to let it go??
    Thanks again!!

    Malavika

    Hi Anmol,
    I am relatively new to meditation and was wondering what one should do when they are ‘bringing their attention to their breath’? I do this in that I am aware that I am breathing and try to feel my breath flowing through my whole body but I always end up either falling asleep during the 20 minute period or trailing of into completely unrelated thoughts …!! Could you help me with this? Warmly, Malavika

    Dear Shibnath,

    Yes, sorry I am just catching up an my email and comments. I have received your emails and great to hear the yoga and meditation class is benefiting you.

    For sound sleep, I use Ujjayi Pranayama or Gayatri Mantar. Here is the link to Ujjayi Pranayama.

    Dear Har Hari,

    Yes absolutely one should tune in the Divine and Universal Energy before doing Kundalini Yoga. I have put that in the participation guidelines for the online classes.

    I have also written a few article on the importance of asking for protection, guidance and inspiration before doing Kundalini Yoga. I am planning to upload a video of Ong Namo to help readers and online yogis practice that further as well.

    Thank you for your feedback and glad you are enjoying the set.

    God Bless You,
    Anmol

    I like the video for the heart centre, my question is why do you not tune in with Ong Namo before practicing kundalini yoga as Yogi Bhajan has advised? I find i miss that, and that it would help to give connection and power to what you are already doing?
