2 of 3 | Exhausted? Try Kundalini Yoga.
Kundalini involves doing repetitive movements while focusing
on a sacred mantra or the sound of your breath. this
stimulates the nervous system, filling you with “prana” or life
Kundalini Torso Twist.
Try this technique from Gurmukh, co-founder and director of
Golden Bridge Yoga in Los Angeles.
1. Sit tall in a comfortable cross-legged position, fingers
spread and resting on your shoulders. Keep elbows in line
with your shoulders and your belly drawn in. close your eyes.
2. As you inhale through your nose, let your belly extend
and twist your torso from your waist to the left, keeping your
hips still and allowing your shoulders and head to follow your
trunk. then exhale through your nose, pull your navel back
toward your spine and twist to the right.
3. Repeat this twisting motion for 1 minute without stopping,
eventually working up to 3 minutes. Let your breath guide
you into each side of the twist.
4. When you’ve completed your minute (or longer), slow the
movement gradually until you come to a complete stop, then
lower your hands to your shins and take 3 deep breaths to get
centered and bring yourself into a revitalized state.
