This energy imbalance occurs as the result of a loss of nerve cells in the part of the brain known as the substantia nigra located in the mid-brain. These cells are responsible for producing the chemical dopamine which allows messages to be sent to the part of the brain that coordinate movement. At the point of diagnosis about 80% of dopamine manufacture has been lost. The large loss of dopamine in the brain throws the normal dopamine-acetylocholine levels off balance affecting the nerve pathways that control nerve contraction. As a result muscles become overly tense causing possible tremor, joint rigidity and slow movement.
As well as the physical manifestation, there can understandably be a decrease in self-confidence and increased levels of anxiety which can often make the symptoms worse.
Kundalini yoga works to rebalance the energy in the body and mind. Through specific use of the breath, yogic movement and meditation we strengthen the nervous system and balance the glandular system to establish new pathways in the brain and body to cleanse, detoxify and renew.
In order for deep healing to take place, there needs to be a point of surrender and acceptance to a set of circumstances. Once we have fully surrendered to a situation, we reconnect with the inner peace that continuously resides within, and the body can then truly start to heal.
Kundalini yoga therapy requires discipline, trust and patience.
