One of our favorite discoveries of 2017 is LA-based kundalini yoga master Guru Jagat and her new book Invincible Living. In the book, Guru Jagat shares her spin on the ancient mind-body practices of kundalini intended to improve your physical and emotional well-being. One of these most powerful exercises is also the easiest — you just breathe. The Chalkboard Mag shares this simple exercise below.
If you’ve had a history of extremes in dieting, or if you’ve had kids or have been on birth control for any amount of time, or if your doctor has mentioned a hormonal imbalance, there are potent yogic tools to reset your glands quickly and effectively!
One of the basic exercises that will get your glandular system (and hormones) in order is breath of fire for three minutes a day. When you hit that three-minute mark, the pituitary and pineal glands start to release a very specific secretion that puts the glands back into balance.
BREATH OF FIRE
– Sit in a cross-legged position with your spine straight and rest your hands on your knees in gyan mudra (pointer finger and thumb touching).
– Close your eyes and roll them gently up and in towards the brown point or third eye.
– Rhythmically and steadily inhale and exhale evenly through both nostrils.
– Mentally say sat on the inhale and nam on the exhale.
