The endocrine system is comprised of a variety of glands that secrete most of our hormones. It plays a large role in mood regulation, metabolism, development and growth. Productivity of this system declines as we hit our mid 20′s, a point at which other systems of the body are compromised and the signs of aging begin to appear. The body performs vital functions efficiently when the hormonal balance and endocrine system are maintained, and the practice of Kundalini yoga is an effective method that is gaining widespread popularity in the west to reverse the hands of time.
Kundalini yoga is an ancient technology that has been proven to strengthen the nervous and endocrine systems. It’s a practice rooted in using science and technology to address health issues such as anti-aging, and the method by which centenarian practitioners in the east remain sharp as a tack. The breathing techniques, physical postures and meditation in this discipline serve to create changes in the brain chemistry, balancing the systems that are affected by aging brought on by modern day life. Alzheimers, low energy, compromised immune systems and poor sleep patterns are just a few of the symptoms of aging that can be healed through the nondenominational practice of Kundalini.
RA MA Institute for Applied Yogic Science and Technology is a premier yoga school in Venice, California that offers a Kundalini practice to people of all ages and levels. Founder Guru Jagat was taught by Yogi Bhajan (the Kundalini Master responsible for bringing the practice to the US). You’ll find that this isn’t just another yoga studio, but a peaceful haven where students old and new can utilize Kundalini as a “tool to chemically release, strengthen, and activate the genetic code, while igniting the energy centers of the body, mind and spirit.”
Think of your body systems as the operating system of a computer; it’s important to maintain and upgrade the system to function at its best. Guru Jagat likens Kundalini to a “toolkit that enables practitioners to maneuver in our modern day climate.” The great thing about Kundalini is that busy people of all ages can experience the benefits of this modality within as little as 90 seconds of practice. Instantly, the blood is rich with oxygen and the endocrine system has attained chemical changes amongst other positive changes. It’s an experience most first-time practitioners have a hard time articulating, but they can all agree that the benefits keep them coming back again and again.
