Kundalini Stretches are a combination of pranayama and simple spinal movements used to help release the shakti energy from the root chakra. They both purge the respiratory system of stale residual air and help to make the spine more supple. They can be used alone as a quick re-energizing technique or integrated into a longer sequence to aid in the desired outcome of that practice. Inspired by Sara Campbell, World Record Breaking Freediver and Kundalini Master.
Sitting in the seated position, straighten and lengthen the spine. Place the hands on the shoulders, fingers in the front and thumb in the back. Twist the body to the right and inhale strongly through the nose. Forcefully twist the body to the left and exhale through the nose. The head follows the shoulders. Start with just 20 twists total, and slowly increase with caution.
Forward & Back
In the seated position, place the hands on the knees. Push the belly forward and arch the back flexing the spine inward, inhale through the nose. Follow by concaving the stomach and hunching the back, flexing the spine out and exhaling through the nose. Start with 20 repetitions and increase with caution.
Round in circles
Same position, but this time imagine that you are “jump-roping” the spine around the belly button. Leading with the navel, arch the back, push the belly forward and inhale through the nose. Continue to lead with the belly button, as if you are making a big circle with it, by rolling it around to the left, then to the back where the spine with be in? and the back hunched, exhaling through the nose, continue in your circle and e you reach the front again inhale. Do 5 in one direction and then 5 in the opposite direction. Always inhaling when the belly is out and exhaling when the belly is in. Increase repetitions with caution.
