Yogic Living: Coping with Stress & Sudden Shock

Life is filled with sudden shocks, starting with birth itself. We all encounter unanticipated changes in our lives. How do we stay calm and steady, and connected to our sense of self when life shakes us up? 

Kundalini Yoga offers many kriyas and meditations that help to manage stress and strengthen nerves. What makes Kundalini Yoga more effective for stress reduction than, say, 20 minutes on the elliptical machine at your gym? While most forms of exercise reduce stress, Kundalini Yoga is uniquely suited because of its positive effects on the glands and nerves. The practice of Kundalini Yoga releases tension from the inner organs, nerves, and glands, and creates an internal biochemistry of calm, inner balance, and depth of self.

“Spread the light and the grace and be alert. Take cold showers. Meditate. And pray. So that adversity may not make you a victim. Difficulty is very simple. You have to decide between victory and being a victim. You understand? And the choice is yours.”
–Yogi Bhajan
