I am having trouble getting the classes to play. What should I do?

     Please clear the cache on the web browser you are using. Click here to learn how to clear your web browser. Also make sure your internet connection is functioning properly. You may want to restart your modem or router in case that is where the issue lies. Sometimes switching to another web browser resolves issues. 

  You can also try viewing the video in standard definition by clicking the HD on the player bar and setting it to 360p or 540p. 

The videos are skipping or pausing. How can I fix this?

     This is due to a slow internet connection on the end of the viewer. Please open the video, push play to get it loading and then push pause while it loads. Please wait until the bar under the video is blue and then begin playing the video. This will enable the video to load entirely before you begin watching the video which will eliminate skipping or pausing.

What is the significance behind the length of yoga/meditation practices- in minutes and days?

Kundalini Yoga Meditation Days

Yogic science says that the number of days of doing a certain meditation has a specific result:

40 days of meditation to embody new experiences or increased capacities.

90 days of meditation to clear our subconscious and build new habits.

120 days of meditation to realize that awareness in our daily lives.

1000 days of meditation to experience self-mastery and confirm our consciousness, beyond every change of time, space and circumstance. A 1000-day practice projects our newfound awareness, mastery and consciousness impersonally for all (it is impersonally personal) a discipline of grace that blesses all. In mythical and symbolic traditions like numerology, it represents the nobility of the individual,
“1”, expanded and radiant, as supported by the three “0’s”, the body, mind and spirit; negative, positive and neutral minds; and the three gunas. It is experience and mastery blended into a self-qualified awareness of human excellence.

Kundalini Yoga Meditation Minutes

Yogic science says that there are specific lengths of time needed for certain desired affects during meditation. Most meditations are done for 11 or 31 minutes.

3 minutes of meditation affects the electromagnetic field, the circulation and stability of the blood.

11 minutes of meditation begins to change the nerves and the glandular system.

22 minutes of meditation balances the three minds, and they begin to work together.

31 minutes of meditation allows the glands, breath, and concentration to affect all the cells and rhythms of the body. It lets the psyche of the meditation affect the 3 gunas, all 31 tattvas, and all layers of the mind’s projections.

62 minutes of meditation changes the gray matter in the brain. The subconsious “shadow mind” and the outer projection are integrated.

2-1/2 hours of meditation changes the psyche in its co-relation with the surrounding magnetic field so that the subconsious mind is held firmly in the new pattern by surrounding universal mind.

How can I learn more about Mantras?

There is a wonderful online resource called Mantrapedia on the Spirit Voyage site that you can access here
You can look up all the mantras and get explanations of what the mantra means, where it is from and links to meditations and audio downloads of each mantra. It is really amazing! 
We add the playlists to each class below the video so you can find the mantras you like and then find them in Mantrapedia to study them.
If you would like to go deeper with mantra study and refine your chanting practice, you may want to check out the Five Secrets of Supreme Sound Free Video Training with Simrit which you can access here

I am new to the 40 Day Challenge. How does it work?

40 Day Challenge-
You can practice the 40 Day Challenge meditation and mantra anytime that works for your schedule each day (before sunrise is preferable).

You can find the different levels you can greet the challenge at the bottom of the 40 Day Challenge Page. Just pick what is realistic, or a reasonable stretch, and follow it each day.

We recommend you download both the video and audio for the Challenge so you can easily access it from your computer even if you are offline.

Weekly Live Broadcasts-
We will have Live Broadcasts once a week during the Challenge. 
Note- There will not be Live Broadcasts each day of the Challenge. 
You can join the Live Broadcast under the 40 Day Challenge Tab. Click the tab and select Live Broadcast.

The Broadcasts will be recorded, so if you cannot join us for the Live Broadcast you can watch the recording when your schedule allows. 
You can find the time of the next scheduled broadcast on the Live Broadcast Page a few days after the last Broadcast. We will also post to the Life-Force Academy Forum and send out email reminders as well. 
You can find past Broadcasts on the Live Broadcast Archive page when logged in under the 40 Day Challenge tab.

It happens rarely that our broadcast gets dropped. If that happens, don’t worry, we will be back up and running shortly. You can refresh your Live Broadcast page and jump back in where you left off by scrolling forward on the playback bar. 


40 Day Challenge Class Series-
We will also be releasing one class from the 40 Day Challenge Class Series per week during the Challenge. You can access these classes from the 40 Day Challenge Page.

Please let us know if you have any other questions or if there is anything else you need to get started by emailing us at

Where can I find manuals for Kriyas and Meditations?

We share the names of the kriyas and meditations in most of the class listings below the video.

Spirit Voyage is an excellent resource for manuals as is the Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings
