Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine, and a light Neck Lock.
Mudra: Interlace the fingers with the right thumb on top. Place the hands at the center of the diaphragm line, touching the body.
Eye Focus: Eyes are closed.
Breath: Concentrate on the breath at the tip of your nose. Notice from which nostril you are breathing. Within 3 minutes you should know. Then change it. If you are breathing primarily through your left nostril, consciously change to your right nostril. Be sure to keep your shoulders completely relaxed. Practice changing this breath back and forth for as long as you like.
Time: You may work up to 31 minutes.
This meditation will alter your energy by changing your nostril breathing. You can’t get out of your body, but you can change its energy. If you are thinking something neurotic and find out that you’re breathing through your right nostril, start breathing through your left nostril instead. This will change your energy from agni (fire) to sitali (cool).
If you are depressed, in a disturbed mental state, start breathing from the right nostril. In 3 minutes you will be a different person. This ability to change nostrils in breathing should be taught to your children within their first 3 years. Exercising this ability can prevent nervous breakdowns.

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan
Yogi Bhajan always said that the Women’s Teachings were the key to the Aquarian Age . . . here is your resource to open that door!
This yoga manual, that accompanies the “I am Woman” reader, has been organized by topic so that you can focus on a particular discipline within your own practice, generate weekend workshops for your students, or create an entire curriculum for an in-depth experience of the women’s teachings over time. Each chapter includes a vigorous kriya or two, several meditations and a mantra/sound-current practice to connect to you to the Shabad Guru and the divine within.
