Benefits of Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga also improves flexibility, nerve strength and glandular balance.  The physical flexibility gained through the practice of Kundalini Yoga means little, however, if not accompanied by mental flexibility and a transformational attitude.

The practice of Kundalini Yoga almost always leads to a heightening of your spiritual awareness.  The real proof that a person has raised his or her Kundalini manifests in less stress, improved mental clarity and increased self-confidence.

How Long Will it Take Before I Notice Changes?

Positive effects as a result of practicing Kundalini Yoga occur in as little as 3 minutes.

3 minutes: Increased blood circulation begins, distributing enhanced endocrine secretions in the body.

7 minutes: Brain patterns begin to shift and the magnetic field surrounding the body increases in strength.

11 minutes: The nervous system begins to clear.

22 minutes: The subconscious mind begins to clear.

31 minutes: Endocrine secretions totally balanced as is the ethereal energy of the chakras (junction points of body and spirit).

62 minutes: Stimulates the frontal lobe of the brain; also the pituitary and pineal glands.  You work through the physical body, the emotions and mental states and are then in communication with aspects of the Divine within yourself.

These changes persist throughout the day and are reflected by positive changes in your mood and behavior.

Periods of Time to Affect Changes

There are also specific periods of time to break old habits and develop new ones.  Often a student of Kundalini Yoga chooses a specific kriya/meditation to affect a desired change and then practices the kriya/meditation for a specific number of days.

40  Days: To change/break a habit.
90  Days: To confirm the habit.
120  Days: The new habit is who you are.
1000  Days: You have mastered the new habit.
