Isha Kriya is a guided meditation for health and well-being. The video is 19 minutes and 29 seconds long.
The speaker, Sadhguru, describes Isha Kriya as a simple but powerful tool that can be used to enhance your ability to use your mind and body.
He says that the practice can help you to realize that being human is super.
The instructions for Isha Kriya are as follows:
- Sit in a cross-legged posture with your spine comfortably erect. If needed, you can use a backrest but no headrest.
- Keep your hands on your thighs with your palms facing upwards.
- Close your eyes and focus on a mild spot between your eyebrows.
- Inhale and exhale gently and slowly. With each inhalation, mentally say to yourself, “I am NOT the body.” With each exhalation, mentally say to yourself, “I am NOT even the mind.”
- Repeat step 4 for 7 to 11 minutes.
- Utter the sound “Ssshhh” seven times with your mouth wide open, exhaling fully into each sound. The sound should come from just below your navel. You don’t need to utter it very loud, but loud enough to feel the vibration of the sound.
- Sit for five to six minutes with a slightly upturned face and keep a mild focus between your eyebrows.
The total time of this practice is between 12 to 18 minutes. You can sit longer if you wish.
Sadhguru says that it is important not to pay attention to the activity of your mind or body when you are doing Isha Kriya. He says that you should simply sit there and ignore whatever is happening.
He also says that it is best to do Isha Kriya twice a day for 48 days, or once a day for 90 days.
Isha Kriya is a simple practice that can be done by anyone. If you are looking for a way to improve your health and well-being, I recommend giving it a try.
