WHAT ABOUT YOUR FIRST KUNDALINI YOGA EXPERIENCE MADE YOU DECIDE TO CONTINUE WITH IT?
When I first attended class I had no experience or had never before attended a class so this was a new kind of experience for me.

I do try to keep up my practice of kriyas and meditation as regular as I can.I wake at 4.am. I find this time to be very good for me, I sit in easy pose taking deep breaths then reciting the mantras to begin. Then after the mantras I begin with the Kriyas. After this I lay on the mat breathing in and out deeply.Then I pull the feet up and rock myself back and forth side to side.Rotate my feet and hands. Rub my feet and hands together.Rock myself back into easy pose,and end with .. Long time sun.
