Kundalini Yoga for Toning the Kidneys (From Owners Manual for the human body)

1) Sit in Easy Pose, hands grasping the waist, applying full pressure with your thumbs where your kidneys are. Twist left and right with a double breath. Inhale and exhale powerfully as you twist left and inhale and exhale powerfully as you twist right. Continue for 5 1/2 Minutes.

This swing puts pressure at the kidneys and helps flush them out with each breath.

2) Immediately come into Back Platform Pose. Raise and lower your buttocks rapidly with Breath of Fire. Continue for 4 Minutes.

This gives relief to the kidneys.

3) Immediately come into Cobra Pose. Then, in rhythm with Breath of Fire, raise yourself from flat on your stomach up into Cobra and lower yourself back down to flat on your stomach. Breathe heavily. Continue the movement for 2 Minutes.

4) Come into Easy Pose, mentally meditate on the sound of 'Ek Ong Kaar''
Concentrate at both the third eye point and the navel and on the flow of energy up and down between these off points. 4 minutes.

Then begin to chant as loud as you can: ''Ek Ong Kaar Sat Gur Prasaad Sat Gur Prasaad, Ek Ong Kaar'' all in one breath. 2 Minutes.
(Yogi Bhajan played the gong throughout this entire meditation.)

To finish: inhale deeply, hold the breath for 15 seconds, and then keep the breath held another 10 seconds while you move the navel. Exhale and relax.

Comments: Those for whom God is the security, they shall always merge in God.
