Kundalini yoga With Gurmukh and meditation sessions were highly enriching on an emotional level. With each undulation of my spine and swift movement of my arms, I could feel the stuck negative energy breaking free in way that was similar to a catharsis of the soul. I was able to rid myself of a lot of feelings that had been trapped in places that even I wasn't aware of. Occasionally during my Kundalini practice, a movement would get particularly difficult and I knew it wasn't only because of the challenge of the motion itself, but that it was something more intrinsic. I kept breathing through it and random emotions like anger, frustration, sadness, or disappointment would surface in my mind. I wouldn't stop, I'd just keep right on with the exercise and focus on my steady breaths coming in and out from my diaphragm. The results after this practice were phenomenal. I felt clearer, my concentration was through the roof, and it was as if a weight from somewhere deep inside had been lifted. This is what a cleansing of the spirit must feel like. My body and mind are gaining unison, working not as separate entities but as a team cheering for the continual improvement of my health. I'm starting to smile not only on the outside, but also on the inside!
