“Kundalini Yoga is a householder’s yoga. It is a yoga which allows an ordinary person to live in this world, experience the ecstasy of consciousness, then use this consciousness to serve humanity.” – Yogi Bhajan –

Yogi Bhajan often referred to Kundalini Yoga as a form of yoga for “householders” – people who have to cope with the daily challenges and stresses of holding jobs, raising families, and managing businesses. While having a strong and consistent sadhana can have an immensely positive impact on our daily experience, having other quick and effective ways to incorporate Kundalini Yoga practices throughout our day can support us in staying grounded and calm in the midst of any unexpected circumstances we may face.

The first practice we would like to share in this Yoga on the Go! series is a short and sweet meditation that only takes 3-minutes to complete! Don’t forget to tune-in with the Adi Mantra before you begin!

Posture: Sit in Easy Post with a straight spine, with a light Neck Lock.

Mudra: With the elbows bent, bring the hands up to meet in front of the body at the level of the heart. The elbows are held up almost to the level of the hands. Bend the Jupiter (index) fingers of each hand in toward the palm, and press them together along the second joint. The Saturn (middle) fingers are extended and meet at the fingertips. The other fingers are curled into the hand. The thumb tips are joined and pointed toward the body. Hold the mudra about 4-inches from the body with the extended fingers pointing away from the body.

Eye Focus: Focus on the tip of your nose.

About This Meditation: This meditation will tranquilize the mind within 3-minutes. The hand position is called “the mudra which pleases the mind.” Buddha gave it to his disciples for control of the mind.
