Speaker 1: Yoga is good for your mind and muscles, but what about your nervous system? Kundalini Yoga focuses on resetting your body’s energy. And Dr. Erica Steele from Holistic Family Practice in Virginia Beach is here to show us some moves. And you brought some folks with. I know I did. I did. So you got Drew Arun and.
Speaker 2: Yeah, some of my fellow Kini teachers.
Speaker 1: Okay. Tell me a little bit about this. I’d never heard of this type of yoga.
Speaker 2: Yeah. Kini is so different from than traditional half of yoga. Okay. And the reason why? Because it’s more of a technology. Oh. So it’s a technology that you can use for life.
So let’s say you’re angry for some reason. Okay. I get, I don’t know, a couple we’ll get, yeah, exactly. There are specific areas of meditation, pros, which are breath work that precisely targets. Those particular unhealthy emotions are trapped in our subconscious minds.
Speaker 1: Wow. So can you do it anywhere? Anywhere, everywhere. So like at the office, if I get mad at doing, I could; I’m Kundalini right now. I close my door and breath of fire. Yeah, exactly. All the time. Tired. Yeah. Which we’ll do today. I was gonna say that and sound good, though. It’s perfect. Okay, cool. Brings blood. Flow to your brain opens up your lungs and helps that solar plexus. So your personal power, self-love, self-worth, self-appreciation. Now, how is this different from Hot yoga or some of
Speaker 2: the other types? Yeah, so there’s no hot Okay. In component, other than the heat that you’re generating from your breath, right? I find it’s a little more of an adjustment. Stick practice is a lot more vigorous in terms of just the breathing and the pro; it really moves a lot of energy.
Okay. So people often move stuck emotions that they have very quickly and effortlessly, which is fantastic. How long have you been doing it? So, my first time doing Kline Yoga was the first day of my teacher training. Oh wow. Yeah. Yeah. In fact, Drew’s wife Kelly called me and said, oh my gosh, you’ve gotta try this.
Speaker 2: And I was like, okay. So I showed up, and I’ve been just hooked ever since. It’s amazing. Okay. It moves things so fast. Really? It could have been stuck for years.
Speaker 1: Oh my gosh. I can’t wait. Okay. Know. So tell me’s a fire.
Speaker 2: Breathe. The fire may go. We’re gonna do that, yeah. So the breath of fire, the way that it works is all we’re gonna do is just in and out. So like dog pants, right? Okay. But your mouth is gonna be closed, so you’re gonna.
Speaker 1: Oh, that’s what I do. When little kids do that. When they get mad.
Speaker 2: Exactly. And then what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna do ego eradicate. Okay? So we’re gonna close our fists. We’ll bring ourselves up to a 90-degree, 60, excuse me, 60-degree angle. The one thing, too, is we’re gonna tune in quickly, so we wanna always tune in. Guru Dave Namo. So that’s just tuning into the golden. Okay. Of all the other teachers before us that came, including Yogi Bud. Okay, so if we cue the music now, we’ve tuned in. We’re tuned in. So now, let’s go ahead and breathe fire. Okay. So for about a minute. So
Speaker 2: keep going. , you. All right. Big inhale. Go ahead and tap your thumbs together. Open up your palms.
Speaker 1: there we go. Not good if you have a little.
Speaker 2: Sinuses going on there. Not really, but it could clear you. Okay, but you notice that all the energy comes to your head, and feel more energized. It also helps your lungs. ELE is cool because it balances the nervous system, so it balances those hemispheres in the brain.
Speaker 2: Okay. So a lot of the different techniques have a lot of angles. So you notice we did that 60-degree angle. Yeah. There are a lot of other postures that have various grades. Unfortunately, science hasn’t quite gotten caught up to all of the fantastic benefits of this.
Speaker 1: So, are you seeing your patients have a significant difference coming? Oh my gosh. The differences.
Speaker 2: So people that have had things that have been stuck for years are talking about what? Anger from childhood? Or difficulty with somebody passing away. Lack of forgiveness of self for others or any kind of stagnated emotion. We haven’t reached where we really understand the effects of emotion on our health.
We’re now reaching that pinnacle where we understand things like cancers. They develop due to long-term anger, hatred, and resentment, right? That has been. Precisely that has been internalized. So this is a great tool and technique that anybody can use to just cut these things and transform them right at the source.
Speaker 1: Okay. Now, for religious people, is this a religion, or is this so something? No, absolutely. Okay. Yeah. Okay. Yeah, it’s really a technology. Like I said, it’s a tool, And you have a special We do. Okay.
