Kriya for Instinctual Self
In Healing Grief it is important first to make the body comfortable, by knowing that it is recognized and loved, and in thus calming and relaxing the body creating the environment for a whole-systems approach to the transformation process we are undertaking.
This is one of the great gifts of Yoga.
The ancient traditions called these “Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether”. Today we know ether as Consciousness and the intertwining of earth, air, fire, and water as the essential “states of matter” -- gases, liquids and solids-- and their combustions (fire) that have formed both our bodies and the entire universe.
These Kriyas are ancient ones nurturing this balance.
Ancient Kriyas for grief like those in this module were often practiced in nature, especially by a river, to give the sense of healing with the flowing of time.
In Yoga, stress is seen as a “frozen” state. It needs to be released with relaxation of both body and spirit, which is the function of these three Kriyas.

Karuna is an Associate Level Trainer in the Aquarian Trainer Academy. She arranges Level One teacher training programs and Level Two teacher training modules in conjunction with Lead Teachers from the Kundalini Research Institute.
Karuna has studied Hinduism, Buddhism, and the Lakota Sioux healing tradition. As her exploration of spiritual practices continued to deepen, she attended a Kundalini yoga class in Los Angeles taught by Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa. Immediately, Karuna was captivated by this amazing technology—unlike any other yoga she had experienced—in which posture, breath, mantra and meditation blend into a rich whole. Karuna was honored when Gurmukh invited her to apprentice with him.
Today, Karuna shares those treasured teachings with Kundalini yoga students in Boulder, and all over the world. True to her spiritual name, which means “compassion,” Karuna likens herself to a coach, helping her students push beyond self-imposed limits. Her classes are filled with humor, music and the spirit of transformation. Find out more at lightonkundalini.com
