I'm taking a Kundalini yoga workshop once a week, and it's amazing. I practice so much vinyasa flow that I sometimes forget about other kinds of yoga! This workshop is a great way for me to expand my yoga and meditation practice.

So, because I’m taking part in a “Yoga for Emotional Wellness” workshop, we have little "assignments." These assignments range from journaling to practicing pranayama and asana. Anyway, one of the assignments is to do what’s called a “1-minute Breath” meditation. Ideally, you breathe in for 20 counts, hold for 20 counts, and then exhale for 20 counts. This is super difficult to do, so many of us are doing it for 10. It’s supposed to help relax and calm the body/mind, as well as bring a sense of clarity. Before starting, you must “tune in”—as in all Kundalini meditations: “Ong namo guru dev namo."
