Janu Vasti 

Janu vasti is a part of panchakarma in Ayurveda. #janu refers to knee joint, #vasti is the procedure of applying heat to the area by preserving warm medicated oil for treatment and pooled into a compartment of flour built around the knee joint, #januvasti. 


Yogi’s Heart Opener

The art of mindfulness and loving kindness is the foundations for living with an open heart. Ustrasana is a classic heart chakra pose for opening and connecting.

The best heart chakra yoga poses are those that open the chest area as well as poses that draw energy into the heart. Situated in the Anahata, the 4th chakra is your point of balance. Balance, between the body and mind, balance between Heaven and Earth.

Ustrasana is also known as Camel pose, a strong asana that opens up your chest area, exposing you, making you vulnerable and more open to giving and receiving love.

One of the most challenging things in life is to be vulnerable. As we grow older we become more closed and constricted. We have been hurt many times and we feel the need to protect ourselves. Physically, we rotate our shoulders forward, we push out our chin and round our upper body to protect the heart. This constricts the flow of prana to the heart and creates an imbalance in the heart chakra. This yoga asana stretches the entire front of the body, abdomen, chest, and throat, as well as deep hip flexors. It strengthens your back muscles and stimulates organs in the abdomen and physically open your heart of course! Expanding and opening your chest to allow your heart to open. Bliss is in your heart, it just needs to be opened. For it is only when you approach life from a place of openness can you embody connectedness with all things.

Every encounter with another divine soul leaves an energetic impression, some deeper than others. From a loving intention, you may heal and release the bonds no longer supporting your soul’s mission.

Soulfully viewing your relationships helps release those ties that no longer add light and love for all. You’ll know when the time is right. Then, follow this meditation to energetically cut the cords, heal inner wounds and restore inner strength so all parties may move forward with love.

Inhale: LET

Exhale: GO

Inhale: LET

Exhale: GO

Let Go and Let It GLOW. Reveal hidden energetic impressions recorded with your every encounter, thought, action and emotion, which may be holding you back. Surrender and entrust them to a higher power for healing and transmutation, leaving you lighter and revitalized. Restore balance, calm and peace to create new limitless possibilities in alignment with your soul.

Sparkling Blessings,

Find Santosha with Supta Baddha Konasana

Baddha Konasana, is one of my absolute favorite yoga poses. A lovely hip opener and the perfect pose for meditation. Practicing this pose activates the lower two chakras, Muladhara and Svadisthana, or the Root Chakra and the Sacral Chakra. The Root Chakra connects to our sense of safety and security, as well as to our sexuality. Supta Baddha Konasana can relaunch your relaxed state of mind.

Tattva Balance Beyond Stress and Duality

When the five elements (tattvas) are strong, are in balance, and are located in their proper areas of the body, then you can resist stress, trauma, and illness. You do not get confused in conflicts between the two hemispheres of the brain as they compete for the right to make direct decisions.

This meditation we would like to share with you uses the hand mudra to pressure the 10 radiance points in the fingers that correlate to the zones of the 2 hemispheres. The equal pressure causes a kind of communication and coordination between the 2 hemispheres of the brain. The deep inhale gives endurance and calmness. The exhale through the mouth strengthens the parasympathetic system from a control band of reflexes in the ring of the throat. This calms reactions to stress.

The strokes of the exhale stimulate the pituitary to optimize clarity, intuition, and decision-making capacities. It resolves many inner conflicts, especially when the conflicts, especially when the conflicts are from different levels of functioning: spiritual versus mental versus physical, or survival needs.

Tattva Balance Meditation  


Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine. Raise the arms with the elbows bent until the hands meet at the level of the heart in front of the chest. The forearms make a straight line parallel to the ground. Spread the fingers of both hands. Touch the fingertips and thumb tips of opposite hands together. Create enough pressure to join the first segments (counting from the tip) of each finger. The thumbs are stretched back and point towards the torso. The fingers are bent slightly due to the pressure. The palms are separated. Fix your eyes at the tip of the nose. 

Create this breath pattern: Inhale slowly and deeply through the nose. Exhale through rounded lips in eight equal, emphatic strokes. On each exhale, pull the navel point in sharply. Continue for 3 minutes. Then inhale deeply, hold for 10-30 seconds, and exhale. Inhale again, and shake the hands over the head. Relax... Total Time: Start with 3 minutes   and build a practice slowly to 11 minutes. 

Peace to all, Light to all, Love to all.. Sat Nam. Sat Nam means Truth is my Identity.

What is Gyan Mudra?

A mudra is a hand position that guides energy flow and by utilizing hand positions we can affect many systems in the body, each representing different emotions and behaviors.

Each finger relates to a planetary energy and the thumb represents individual persona. One of the most common mudras is Gyan Mudra (forefinger known as Jupiter finger and thumb touch) This mudra activates wisdom. By touching the fingers and palms, we can effectively communicate to the body and mind. It is a technique for giving clear messages to the mind-body-energy system.


Gyan Mudra is a powerful mudra practiced for thousands of years by yogis that bring peace, calm and spiritual progression. Spiritual masters such as Yeshua (Jesus), Buddha, and Guru Nanak are all shown regularly with this hand position relating to planet Jupiter.


How to do Gyan Mudra:   

Connect the thumb and the forefinger tip to tip. The other fingers are straight but relaxed. Pressure between the thumb and Jupiter finger is light.


Why practice Gyan Mudra?

Gyan Mudra has variety. Stimulating the root chakra, it eases tension. Relates to expansion and knowledge. It is extremely calming and brings forth a spiritual openness and ease in meditation. Also, known as Vaayu-Varhak in traditional Ayurveda, this mudra boots the air element (Vaayu), stimulating the brain, empowering the mind, nervous system, and pituitary gland. Gyan Mudra’s benefits include stimulating the endocrine system and through the air element it dries out joints and cartilage which might be full of fluid, causing joint stiffness and pain.

Gyan mudra is most often practiced with the hands resting on the knees and the elbows straight. When the palms face down, the feeling it conveys is grounding and rooting oneself to the earth. When the palms point out, you are connecting yourself to celestial knowledge.

This wonderful technique can be done anywhere at anytime! For more information on mudras, mantras, meditations and kriyas, follow us on Facebook Twitter and Instagram

Peace to all, Life to all, Love to all, Sat Nam. Sat Nam means truth is my identity and Om Shanti.. Shanti means Peace.

Enchantment Mantra

Self-love. It can be a hard thing to pull off,  and also the greatest gift we can give ourselves. By loving ourselves openly, honestly, and completely, we can heal the wounds of the heart and feel truly beautiful. It helps, asking the universe for support. Getting to a quiet space and consciously changing thoughts. I realize more and more that we are the products of our own thought patterns. When you change the conversation everything within you shifts and in this intimate space you can truly embody the goddess within and create a loving life!

Kundalini Yoga and Meditation gives us technologies to feel beautiful from the inside out. The mantras and meditations tap us into a place of unconditional love and connection with the divine.

A beautiful simple mantra that is in the language of English is:

I am Bountiful, I am Blissful, I am Beautiful


Give it a try and see how you feel. Three minutes a day for 40 days you will see a huge shift in your vibration and in life.

Sat Nam (truth is my identity)
