Lower Legs & Your Purpose – Kundalini Yoga

Lower Legs and Your Purpose – Kundalini Yoga

IMG_0476

Before the onset of the Christmas rush, let’s work with our bodies to be aware of what messages they are giving us to help us through this beautiful yet sometimes stressful period.

Guru Singh reminds us our how our physical anatomy connects to our emotions. The feet are the direction that your life is moving in. You should always check your feet and notice if they are turning in or out. If they are turning in or out then you are fighting your own direction. Your ankles are the angles of your momentum into that direction and must always be limber and active as you walk. If you allow them to become passive you will lose your power of moving forward in your life. Your lower legs are the principles on which you stand. There are two bones therefore you are born with two standards, your own values and the ones applied to you by society. The tibia bone is the larger one and contains your personal standards and principles. The fibula is smaller and slightly positioned to the back, containing the standards and expectations from society. Honour your personal standards first, but do not ignore societies standard other wise you will face disruptive opposition in your life.

So this week in our classes we will work on aligning our feet, ankles, legs and knees and be aware of the signals that they are giving us and whether we are in touch with our own principles or if we are just living by others standards and see if we can make our lower body fit and healthy.

Reduce Inflammation with Kundalini Yoga – Mon 8 April 6.15pm

kid

Happy Holidays everyone as we gear up for Sinhala and Tamil New Year. I will around after 16 April to continue with classes. Just look out for my schedule below including a Poya Gong Bath.

This week I will focus on the vagus nerve as we focus on the healthy part of 3ho. I was inspired by an article I read in the KRI newsletter by Raj Kaur Khalsa (Naila Omar Khayyam Alieva), Ph.D.and Sat Bir Singh Khalsa, Ph.D. In summary they looked at various studies done on how inflammation in the body (defined as an immune system response to acute injury, chronic illness, etc which inflames tissues, blood vessels, organs, etc) is effected by regular yoga, breathe, meditation practice.

The significant studies are mainly conducted in India. Firstly those patients doing a regular combined yoga, breath & meditation practice showed reduced expression of gene activity involved in the inflammatory response that are created by stress. Second, yoga breathing exercises and meditation have been demonstrated to reduce pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as IL-1 beta, IL-6 and TNF-alfa and have a positive impact on depression, anxiety, cognition, and pain. Lastly, yoga and other practices are well known to directly stimulate the vagus nerve. It was found that an increase in vagal tone is correlated with the capacity to regulate the stress response and likely contribute to resilience and the mitigation of mood and anxiety symptoms, which ultimately might reduce inflammation symptoms.

The conclusion is that we need to make a proactive decision to engage with lifestyle changes which can help us a lead lives which are healthier and reduce long term  inflammation response but this takes discipline and effort which we need to develop and invest in ourselves.

For the full article please go to https://kundaliniresearchinstitute.org/?page_id=1019#nine we will discuss what is the Vagus nerve and how it can assist us next week.
