Hormonal Balance Part 2 – Kundalini Yoga Mon 6 March 6.15-7.30pm Prana Lounge

Last week we looked at the Endocrine system and I was asked by several students to write a second blog with a more detailed description of each gland/organ, the emotions attached to them and the hormonal secretions that need to be balanced. I decided it would be best done in a simple practical table.

Hope this is enjoyable and informative.

The first Chakra, earth element is about grounding and feeling safe and secure. Doing any poses which uses your legs and feet strongly like Tree pose, warrior, or forward bends will help you feel balanced. This region is where the Kundalini energy resides, waiting to be awakened to travel up the spine to all balance the entire body, subtle body, mind and aura.
