Continue at least 3 minutes.
kriya is not recommended for early beginners. It is a good physical workout
that requires flexibility and endurance. The lower nerve plexi are pressured
and the vital energy is raised above the diaphragm. This set is of great
value for any consistent difficulty with digestion or elimination. If you
get very nervous and shaky under tense situations, this set is excellent.
It is an excellent preparatory kriva for meditations that release you from
false identifications to the body or mind.
