The Flow of Prana by Kari
is part of
the respiratory cycle
that transfers life-force energy
to the trillions of cells
Prana, also is cosmic vibration
that nourishes and
transfers life-force energy to
every living creature,
rock, plant, tree, water, food, fungi, bacteria,
insect, bird, fish, sun, moon, and cloud.
Each time you breathe
through and over
When you practice of pranayama
you tap into life-force energy
that churns the wheels of your chakras
recharges, balances, and revitalizes
your energy fields
so that instead of losing energy,
you increase your energy flow.
Combing Your Aura by Goswami Kriyandanda, Extraordinary Spiritual Potential, p 8
This technique helps you develop your psychic self-defense and helps you get rid of larger impinged thoughts that produce a constant discharge of energy.
The technique is done in this way: Feel free to sit in any comfortable seated position.
Take you upper lip and pull it down over your upper teeth, trying to pull your upper lip into your mouth, gently locking it there with your tongue or lower lip (or teeth). This activates certain nadi’s (energy channels in the body), and opens the nasal passages. It also activates cranial nerves.
You then pump your stomach in and out so the air pumps in and out of the lungs quickly, like a bellow. The strength is not important.
Once you run out of air, just take a deep breath through the open mouth as fast and as quickly as you can, and pump again. While you are doing this, on the inhalation feel your aura expanding out three to twelve inches. The important thing is that there is expansive awareness. In the same way, each time you exhale, feel your aura contracting.
Visualization is important in this! Visualize your aura shaking, and this literal shaking literally causes the old thought forms, and some larger thought forms, to break loose and drop to your feet. By natural magnetism of the earth, they thought form will be neutralized.
Repeat this technique three, seven, or nine times. If you get into the habit of doing this, you will become tremendously invigorated. Practice of this pranayama technique clears the aura.
I have known Kari for a number of years. She is unequaled in her dedication to using yoga as a vehicle to understand her place in the world and make an impact in the lives of those she encounters. She has a deep knowledge of the workings of the human body – derived from her personal practice and her many years of teaching. She approaches each individual as a unique person and treats all with respect. Besides that, she has a great sense of humor and an assured yet gentle manner."
Kari Tomashik is a true and kind teacher of Eischens Yoga. She has taken Roger Eischen’s groundbreaking work much further. Kari is both a very clear communicator who can help the uninitiated and experienced practitioner to learn about their body/mind/spirit, and an experimenter who keeps her ego out of the way of her focus on the learner.
I had the distinct pleasure of studying yoga and taking classes with Roger and Kari in Madison for around four years. I learned volumes! As another student put it, their method of teaching is like the “philosopher’s stone” applied to yoga. Classes were both insightful and delightful on account of Kari’s whimsical sense of humor. The vibe was intense and focused yet without taking anything too seriously. We had fun while devoting ourselves to precise alignment. I highly recommend their Iyengar-style technique and Kari‘s personal teaching style!"
I met Kari on my travels in Pai, (Thailand). I was so lucky to have the chance to practice with her on my morning sessions. Kari showed me with a few words and gentle adjustments the way to open my heart. But more valuable to integrate & strengthen that open heart. Kari is an authentic,natural born teacher who shares her experience from deep down in her beautiful heart! Everlasting gratitude."
