“The Process of self-healing is the priviledge of every being.  Self-healing is not a miracle, nor is self-healing a dramatization of the personality as though you could do something superior.  Self-healing is a genuine process of the relationship between the physical and the infinite power of the soul.  It is a contract, a union.”  Yogi Bhajan

   Balancing Hemispheres of the Brain
Balancing Emotions

           Our psychological lives are intimately bound up with activity in our endocrine, cardiac, respiratory and immune systems.  Our physical structure gains expression in our though patterns, emotions and memory processes.  Research has demonstrated that the body’s incline, temperature and muscle tone influence such things as our perception of others, our altruism and orientation toward either the past or the future.  This class is to move and clear emotional trauma and stress.
Pranayam – Ujjayi breath with mudra for balancing the hemispheres of the brain and maintaining balanced brain chemistry
Warm Up Exercises and Eagle Balance Pose
Kriya – Balancing Emotions
Meditation – Har Har Har Har Gobinday for clearing and prosperity

August 11, Sunday, 9:30-10:30 AM
Balancing the Blood Gases
Balancing the Depository System

          Mantra is a Kundalini yoga practice that has been shown to decrease physical risk factors including high blood pressure and low brain oxygen saturation, as well as stimulating chemoreflex sensitivity by which the body balances the acid-base PH in the arteries.  Regulating patterns of breath changes oxygen and carbon dioxide in the arterial blood and exerts powerful effects on neural circulatory control of the sympathetic nerve traffic.
A lymph node is a depository for cellular debris that ingests bacteria and other harmful material.  Lymph nodes are important for the proper functioning of the immune system, acting as filters for foreign particles and cancer cells.  Lymph nodes do not detoxify which is primariley dealt with by the liver and kidneys.  The system requires bodily movement to function as it has no pumping system of its own.
Pranayam – Ujjayi Breath with mudra for well being / Sitali Cleansing Breath for Emotional Release (Emotions Heat up the body)
Warm Up Exercises and Inversion Balance
Kriya – Balancing the Depository System
Meditation – Ang Sang Wahe Guru for the knowledge that transforms your mind, emotions and essence.
