“The Everything Kriya”
The word “kriya” means “completed action”. It is an action which “must sprout the seed”, in the words of Yogi Bhajan. In Kundalini Yoga, it is an exercise or group of exercises that work toward a specific outcome. Some kriyas are a single exercise, such as Sat Kriya, which is considered to be one of the fundamental practices in Kundalini Yoga. It is good to practice every day, starting with one minute (for beginners), working up slowly to three minutes. This is a very powerful kriya, so build up the time slowly; with practice it can be built up to 2 ½ hours for the most dedicated practitioners.
Ideally, you should relax for at least the same amount of time as you practice Sat Kriya, resting on your back in Corpse Posture, or in Gurpranam Pose (similar to Extended Baby Pose, but with the palms pressed together).
