Stress Reducer- Kundalini YogaAugust 2, 2007 6:27 pm Chakra-Neuroendocrinology
Kundalini Yoga is absolutely a must as a stress reducer!
I honestly can say that within Kundalini Yoga for the past 3 years I would not be where I am today as an individual. The stress would be entirely too much. I use my morning practice, Sadhana, as a continual stress reducer.
Just the other day after a stressful day on the job, I decided to come home and sing some mantras for a while. In less than half an hour my aura was strengthened and my well being improved.
I just read a great article in the recent edition of the Aquarian Age. The article speaks about managing stress through yoga. More specifically it sites several studies that have been conducted on the benefits of a regular yoga practice for stress reduction.
Info of note from the article includes statistically relevant improvements in perceived stress, stress behavior and exhaustion.
Gotta give a shout out to Sat Bir Singh Khalsa, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School (and Director of Research for the Kundalini Yoga Institute)
Yo, professor, if you got any more studies comin up, please let me know if I may help facilitate them in any way?
As a stress reducer, Kundalini Yoga rocks!
