Tadan Kriya (kriya 9)

This is the ninth of the twenty Kundalini Kriyas of Kriya Yoga. If you have not completed my free online course, please download and complete that first.

This kriya requires a change in sitting position to Padmasana. Eyes are open and when ready, droop the head slightly back and practice Shambhavi Mudra. Inhale through the mouth with Ujjayi Pranayama while moving your concentration down the center of the body from the mouth to Mooladhara Chakra. When your concentration reaches Mooladhara, imagine the breath is collecting there.

Hold the breath and practice Moola Bandha. Using your hands, lift the body off the ground and drop it on Mooladhara. Repeat this beating 3 times. Release Moola Bandha.

Exhale through the nose with Ujjayi Pranayama while imagining the stored breath at Mooladhara diffusing in all directions.

Bring your focus back to your mouth to begin the next round. Complete seven rounds, then go to the next kriya.

A video describing and demonstrating this kriya is presented below.
