Read on to discover the ideal postures for Kirtan with Nikki…

To create the ideal posture: Lengthen the spine and back of neck and visualise the head like a toffee apple on a stick. Take a hair on the crown of the head and imagine it is attached to the ceiling like a puppet on a string.

Lengthen and widen the shoulders feel the breeze under the armpits like the gills of a fish.

Cave Wave breathe allowing the breathe to come effortlessly in and out like the ocean playing against the walls of a cave.

Lifting the roof of the mouth so that the sound can ride the wave of the breathe like a surfer coming into the shore.

Jaw to Core. Exploring the power of your core sound as the jaw releases.
