Basic Spinal Energy Series
“Age is gauged by the flexibility of the spine”
To stay young, stay flexible! This series works systematically from the base of the spine to the top. All 26 vertebrae receive stimulation and all the chakras receive a burst of energy. This makes it a good series to do before meditation. Many people report greater mental clarity after regular practice of this kriya. A contributing factor is the increased circulation of the spinal fluid, which is crucially linked to having a good memory. In a beginner’s class, each exercise that lists 108 repetitions can be done 24 times. The rest periods are then extended from 1 to 2 minutes.
This series is wonderful for strengthening and balancing your spine and open the channels to“feed” your brain. The Library of Teachings is the most reliable source for the teachings o Yogi Bhajan, besides our site :)
