Shakti Chalini (kriya 11)

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

Continue sitting in Siddhasana or Siddha Yoni Asana. Eyes are closed, breath is fully exhaled, tongue is in Kechari Mudra, head is drooped forward, and your focus is on Mooladhara. Mentally repeat "Mooladhara" three times then begin Ujjayi inhalation while moving your concentration along the Arohan passage up the front of the body through the Kshetrams. Be aware of, but do not mentally repeat the name of each Kshetram as you pass by it. At Vishuddhi, move your head up and droop it back as your concentration reaches Bindu. Hold your breath and apply Shanmukhi Mudra.

Allow your awareness to descend down Awarohan and then up Arohan in a continuous loop. Visualize a thin green snake moving with the awareness through the Awarohan and Arohan passageways. The head of the snake is biting its tail as it cycles through a few loops. Release Shanmukhi Mudra and bring your hands to your knees.

With your awareness at Bindu begin Ujjayi exhalation. Move your head to a forward facing position while moving your concentration along the Awarohan passage down the back of the body through the Chakras. Be aware of, but do not repeat the name of each Chakra as you pass by it. At Mooladhara, droop your head forward to begin the next round. Complete five rounds, then go to the next kriya.

A video describing and demonstrating this kriya and the previous kriya (Naumukhi Mudra) is presented below.
