Greet 2023 with a mind-body reset with nerves of steel!
In the third millennium we are surrounded by an overwhelming amount of information from technology, in particular the vast images and sounds that come at us like bullets from Social Media. Our brains are not designed to process that much information in such a short amount of time. In fact 100 years ago, it has been cited that what our brains processed in a lifetime is now processed in a day. This being the case, you can imagine how harmful an information overload can be on both our brain and nervous system.
This third millennium, coined in Kundalini Yoga as the Age of Aquarius, can be survived with a sound mind and body with meditation and kundalini yoga kriyas designed for fine tuning our minds and nervous system. By embodying daily meditation and exercise into your life you can also become happier and learn to live your human potential.
The best time to start is now with the New Year and the first day of 2023! Click here also to find out the numerology behind this new year that adds up to 7.
