This series is focused on all the feelings and intentions you need to have a happy, productive and prosperous week.
Monday is associated with the moon. It is a day for reflection,
connecting with your innermost thoughts and strengthening
your intuition. You may find an increased capacity to pick up on subtle
signals from people around you and situations you find yourself in.
This practice has been choreographed to stimulate your mind-body
connection, and remind yourself of your ability to keep your inner light
shining bright by consciously choosing thoughts, words and actions that
are in alignment with your authentic self!
Today's kriya works directly with the pituitary gland, the pea-sized
master gland that sits within the brain, right behind the brow
point. The hormones secreted by this gland help to regulate many
vital functions of the body such as growth, blood pressure, metabolism,
water/salt balance, pregnancy and child-birth, pain relief and the
stress response. With this gland's link to so many unconscious functions
of the body, it is perhaps easy to see why yogic science sees healthy
functioning of the pituitary gland as vital for your health, your
intuition and your ability to live a self-directed life.
DVD contains an Intro to the day then we move on to the practice: we
start by "tuning in", a series of warm-ups (10 mins), the physical
routine (the kriya 30 mins), followed by The Smiling Buddha Kriya
meditation (12 mins), and then a relaxing shavasana (5 mins). Finally we
tune out with mantra to complete the practice. Practising this series
of postures will bring about a strong sensation of self-knowledge and
assuredness, and will stir feelings of happiness and positivity deep
within that will help you share the benefits of your workout with those
around you as you go about your day.
