kundalini yoga -- kriya for self reliance

leg lift and stretch

  1. Inhale and lean back to 60 degrees while lifting the arms out straight, palms facing down. Holding the breath, lift the legs up to 60 degrees, keeping them as straight as possible.

  1. When you cannot hold your breath anymore, exhale and lower the legs. Fold over them, grabbing the toes if you can. Stay here, breathing long and deep.

    When the timer goes off, go through just the lift sequence quickly: inhale and raise the arms and legs, hold the breath, then exhale and fold over the legs. Repeat this move 3 or 4 times.
