I really enjoyed this. It as long and hard for me to find time to do it all and difficult mentally for me to make the space this long. But I know that's good forme. I learned a lot and was surprised by how well I could sustain the breathing.

Tension with mulabandha
avesart 1 month ago

Hi Dawn,
I really enjoyed your class. I was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's and have muscle tightness in my left leg and arm. This tension is further activated whenever I do any type of exercise, but especially when I engage mulabandha. Do you have any suggestions? Its very frustrating, as the tightness and discomfort seems to be a constant distraction to me. Thank you, Pamela

Hello Pamela,
That is interesting that the tension is activated when engaging mulabandha. I suggest not activating mulabandha in conjunction with any asana or breath work at this time. If you want to work with mulabandha, do it on it's own for a while first, and very lightly. If the tension increases, then cease working on it, but if, with very light mulabandha the tension starts to diminish over time, then you can continue to slowly work with it, and eventually add any breath work or asana with the mulabhanda. Stay with movements that are pain-free. Let your body guide you. A Kundalini practice may not be appropriate, or, you may find yourself modifying a lot, and take full liberty to do this! ~Sat Nam, Dawn Rabey www.dawnrabey.com

Deep and warm

I did this class last night. I couldn't comment last night as a warm buzz flowed through my body. I had strained a few muscles in my back on an uphill walk. After this class, they have soothed away. I slept deep and quiet. Thank you.

Thank You!

Such a rewarding class

I have ADHD, so meditation is very difficult. I was initially hesitant to do this session, because of it's introspective and meditative nature, and how long it was. I must say though that my fears were unfounded. This class is surprisingly active, while immensely introspective. By the time I entered savasana, I was full of pure, meditative energy. Thank you so much for this class. I cannot wait to do it again!

Thank you, Dawn, for your

Thank you, Dawn, for your wonderful, clear instruction. I have just one question. Could you explain the sat-nam breath, in particular for the Sat Kria? I understood that "sat" occurs on the inhale, but do you actually say "sat" on the inhale or do you inhale somewhere else? I tried to see what you do but it seemed like you were not even inhaling at all, which is amazing. It looked like you were exhaling both on the short "sat" and the long "nam". Thanks again, I feel very aware and alive after this wonderful class.

Sat Nam Kriya
Dawn Rabey 8 months ago

Dear Finch,
Thank you for your question, and, great question! Though, my answer will not be so satisfying at first. There are no breath instructions for the Sat Kriya, or rather, the instructions are specifically to not focus on the breath, and to let it happen naturally. The focus is on the chant 'Sat Nam', and the breath will regulate around it. It is awkward at first, but after several times, it will start to regulate itself and find it's own place. Do not try to control the breath or make it happen in any certain way. Chant "Sat Nam" and let the breath find it's way. I hope that helps - let me know how it goes!

Thank you so much, Dawn.

Thank you so much, Dawn. That is actually very intuitive and helpful! I am a martial artist and do a lot of breath work so the breath regulating itself makes good sense to me. Thanks again!

Thank you!
