The Endocrine System: Balancing Hormones and Metabolism

The Endocrine System is a network of glands that regulate chemical balance, pH balance, hormonal balance, body temperature, and the body's assimilation of light. They do this by secreting hormones that circulate throughout the body. This system is like an interface between emotions and body because feelings produce chemicals and these chemicals change bodily responses. Fear, for example, releases the hormone adrenalin into the bloodstream preparing the body for fight or flight. The blood pressure rises, heartbeat increases, brain is more alert, muscles tense up, hunger is supressed, digestion stops, and breathing becomes shallow and rapid. Together with the nervous system, the endocrine system regulates all human bodily functions. This is an 8 week Kundalini Yoga series that is meant to stimulate, support and encourage the proper functioning of the endocrine system for optimal health and vitality. We will focus on one specific gland of the endocrine system each week. Kundalini Yoga is the science, art and technology that allows one to access their own creative energy. This power is believed to lie dorment in the lower spine and is described as a coiled, sleeping serpent (Kundalini means coiled) that can be awakened spontaneously or by yogic techniques, and rises to unite with universal energy. The person is empowered with expanded consciousness beyond ordinary awareness and perception and powers beyond ordinary abilities. Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bajhan consists of exercises or postures (Asanas) with special breathing (Pranayamas), hand and finger gestures (Mudras), body locks (Bandhas), chanting (Mantras), and meditation to create exact and specific effects in the body and mind. Each Kundalini Yoga class includes six parts. 1) Tuning In Kundalini Yoga Classes always begin with an opening mantra to tune in mentally and physically to the practice you are about to begin. The entire class will chant the Adi Mantra -Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo. Yogi Bhajan taught this is ancient yogic mantra as a tool to relate instantly to the divine teacher within. It is used to tune in before Kundalni Yoga classes to center us in the higher self, and to spiritually guide both the teacher and the students during the class. 2) Pranayam or Warm-up Kundalini Yoga employs a wide range of pranayam, using the breath to effect and manage different states of consciousness, relaxation, and well-being. 3) Kriya A Kriya is an exact, dynamic combination of postures, breathing and sound – a complete system that balances body, mind and soul and increases mental clarity and physical vitality. 4) Relaxation Deep Relaxation (Savasana) is often called the most important pose in yoga. All of yoga practice, in every form from Iyengar to Kundalini, intelligently informs the body of neuromuscular changes. That is to say, the practice of yoga fundamentally changes the structure of who we are. Savasana, allows the body to rest in order to integrate and accept these changes prior to entering the fray of normal life. 5) Meditation Meditation in Kundalini Yoga contains specific, practical tools that carefully and precisely support the mind and guide the body through the use of breath, mantra, mudra and focus. The range and variety of meditation techniques in the Kundalini Yoga tradition is truly extraordinary. 6) Closing It is customary to close every Kundalini Yoga practice by chanting The Long Time Sun Blessing along with three repetitions of Sat Nam. Preparing For Class Plan to be well hydrated prior to class. The ideal time to eat a meal would be approximately two to three hours before you plan to begin a session.
