Use this Kundalini Yoga sequence to support ideal digestion and overall health by increasing energy at the navel point and keeping the digestive organs strong and flexible.
The quality of our digestion is the key to health in Ayurveda as well as yogic theory. If digestion is slow and imbalanced, the body is more vulnerable to disease (not to mention uncomfortable due to gas, bloating, constipation, and the like). Most colds and other illnesses are believed to be caused by energy imbalances beginning in the digestive tract.
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan supports ideal digestion by increasing the fire energy at the navel point and evenly distributing it throughout the body. It also works to keep the digestive organs strong and flexible, allowing for easier elimination.
“In many exercise traditions, the abdomen is held rigid,” says Sat Jivan Kaur Khalsa, co-director of Kundalini Yoga East in New York City. “In Kundalini Yoga, the goal is to have a flexible abdomen that’s also strong, which has a significant beneficial impact on your digestion.” Try the following Kundalini Yoga exercises as taught by Yogi Bhajan to promote optimum health.
