SLEEPING DURING YOGA, PRESSURE POINTS AND YOGA NIDRA

Is it normal to sleep during yoga?

Being someone who has the tendency to fall asleep when not doing something of a certain engagement level can create a fair few problems. Dozing off during class comes across as disrespectful and uninterested although this is not the case for me! I’ve faced this issue from as early on in my life as I can remember. Maybe it’s a combination of growing up in an era where media is causing attention span to decrease, maybe it’s a genetic disorder, I don’t know.

It is close to the end of the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course and I have fallen asleep during Shavasana almost after the end of each practical class. I have also fallen asleep while holding various sitting and supine poses. So I research about whether it is normal to sleep during yoga and it is completely normal! (Phew.) It also shows that you are in a state of relaxation, a goal of yoga practice.

However, if like me, you would like to not fall asleep during yoga, here are some recommended poses.

5 POSES TO PREVENT FALLING ASLEEP:
Breath of Joy (Pranayama)
Upward-Facing Salute – Urdhva Hastasana
Downward Facing Dog – Adho Mukha Svanasana
Reverse/Exalted Warrior Pose – Viparita Virabhadrasana
Dancer Pose – Natarajasana

Besides these poses, I feel like inversions also help me to feel more awake. Although I still sleep in class, I don’t think that this is an issue that can be resolved overnight and other measures need to be taken as well. First and foremost, ample sleep. Secondly, a classmate of mine who practices qigong shared with me her knowledge regarding pressure points, saying that pressing firmly onto certain pressure points on my body would aid with my blood circulation and hopefully help me stay awake during class. This is similar to the concept of chakras that we are taught in yoga. Apologies to my non-Mandarin reading friends but I’m sure a quick Google check can provide you with information!

Any points showed on the red and blue lines pressed during 7 to 9 in the morning would be the most effective.

There are three indentations at the back of our head, those are also pressure points that are easily accessible to be pressed by ourselves to help relieve fatigue.

Yoga is about going with the flow and not fighting our body’s desires and signals.

Do note that sleep and yogic sleep (aka yoga nidra) is different. Yoga evaluates the overall state of the mind and body by the relative proportion of three inherent qualities: Sattva, Rajas, and Tamas. Sattva is associated with calm awareness. Rajas is the principle of movement and activity. When out of balance, it can lead us off on mental tangents and manifest in the body as twitches and jerks. Tamas is the force of gravity and gives a sense of groundedness. In excess, it can be felt as a restrictive heaviness, dragging the conscious mind into sleep. Falling asleep during relaxation practices is usually a sign that the quality of tamas is excessive or the quality of rajas is deficient. The practice of systematic relaxation requires a balance between rajas and tamas so that we are grounded and comfortably present in the body, but at the same time alert and mentally attentive. When both conditions are present, our consciousness can rest in sattvic self-awareness.

This Sattvic self-awareness can be achieved through yoga nidra, a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping that occurs during the stage where we enter deep sleep. The yogic goal of both paths, deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and meditation are the same, a state of meditative consciousness called samadhi.

I hope my post has been reassuring and informative to those who face the same problem as I do!

Yoga for your insides

Yoga has many benefits. Most people know the wealth of physical benefits- improves flexibility, improves strength and stamina – but what about what it does to your insides?

There’s a whole new area to explore when looking at the effect of yoga on your hormones.

Each of the glands in the endocrine system has specific functions, and can cause specific symptoms if out of balance. As it’s a system, if one gland is out of balance, then it is likely to affect other glands in the system so it’s important to do a yoga practice that helps to keep the entire system balanced.

For those who believe in the energy of the chakras, the endocrine system is also very closely aligned with the chakra system with the positioning of each chakra containing one or two glands.

A regular practice has been shown to decrease cortisol and adrenaline hormone levels- the hormones that rise during periods of stress and can possibly cause tumours if the levels remain high for a long period of time. While they’re our in-built fight or flight mechanism, they’re also the hormones that can make you cranky and generally not happy.

For women during their menstruation or menopause, hormones can wreck havoc on happiness and outlook on life. Yoga can contribute a balancing effect.

Yoga can also help you sleep more soundly and peacefully as certain positions can raise levels of melatonin.

Yoga can also increase thyroid hormone which increases your metabolism rate and helps you lose weight and feel more alive.

While it’s not an exact science, many studies state that it takes around 3 to 6 months of regular practice for yoga to have these effects on your hormones.

I’ve been doing yoga one and off for a few years now and I personally have definitely noticed its effect on my mood during the periods when I’ve committed to regular practice.

Here are some good yoga poses to try to stimulate certain glands:

Pireal gland– halasana, matsyasana

Pituatory– siriana

Thyroid– halasana, viparita karani

Pancreas– any twisted pose like parvitta trikonasana or pincha mayurasana

Adrenal – any backbends such as chakrasana, ustrasana

Reproductive glands – sirsasana

Here are some power poses when it comes to stimulating the glands:

Sasangasana
This pose stimulates the thyroid and the parathyroid glands. The thyroid gland is located in the neck and secretes hormones that regulate growth and metabolic function. The parathyroid glands are also found in the neck and control how much calcium is released into the body.

Bhujangasana
Cobra Pose massages the adrenal gland which allows your body to better combat stress and release tension.

Ustrasana
This pose stimulates your internal organs, especially in the neck region where the thyroid and parathyroid glands are located.

Moving Forward! Start a journey to a Yogi Lifestyle – 4  The Theory

Love the theory part, not so much that I like to read now, but so relax and easy that someone there talk and I listen, the science, the philosophy, the art, and the stories.

I had already much forgotten to recall exactly how many years from the day I enjoy listening to the teacher’s classroom teaching.

It’s back to my old golden days.

After all, after reading for so many years, my eye sights getting bad. Just packed up all my books into 26 cartons of boxes while preparing to move them to another location.

After this course, I think, likely will start collecting and pick up again, books on the Yoga’s title.

It’s pleasant reading on the Yoga Sutra, though initially having difficulties and hard time stirring my tongues over the Sanskrit words and trying to figure out what’s the meaning by reading the long explanation inside the manual, which eventually made me more confused.

Lucky enough, I managed to find and organized from the internet.
Well, IF, I meant “IF”, If I have the time, likely will add on to it’s German and Chinese or even other languages translation at my leisure if I can find it.

Here share if you need.

Here go we happy Journey to Yoga Lifestyle.

Anahata – The Heart Chakra

Out of the 7 main Chakras, I love the Heart Chakra the most. It is the wellspring of love, warmth, compassion, and joy and it is located in the center of the chest at the heart level. All my life I have been driven by love and compassion. I always tell people that I perform better when there is love in and around me. I guess this works for most of us. 

The Heart Chakra is also the center of our deep bonds with others, our sense of caring and compassion, our feelings of self-love, altruism, generosity, kindness, and respect. Others can feel our love and warmth. They feel loved and accepted unconditionally. People feel at peace around us, as there is no judgment coming from us.

When Anahata is open and energy is flowing freely, we are not only loving to others, we are also loving to ourselves. We know when we need to say no and when we need care and self-nurturing. To open to love is to reach to the deepest places and connect with our true essence, our spirit, and our soul.

Heart Chakra Affirmations

  • I am open to love.
  • All love resides within my heart.
  • I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
  • I nurture my inner child. I am wanted and loved.
  • I live in balance, in a state of gracefulness and gratitude.
  • I love the beauty of nature and the animal world. I forgive myself.
  • I am open to love and kindness.
  • I am grateful for all the challenges that helped me to transform and open up to love.
  • I am connected with other human beings.
  • I feel a sense of unity with nature and animals.
  • I accept things as they are.
  • I am peaceful.

Energetic Anatomy: Chakras and Meridians

As I learn more about Chakras in this YTT course, I come to realise Chakras and Meridian points in TCM are quite similar and are often talked about together.

Definitions:  

Chakras: Disk, vortex, or wheel in sanskrit. These are non-physical energy fields that map onto our physical body from the base of the spine to the top of the head. There are 7 major chakras in our body:

  1. Root Chakra – Centre of Stability and Support
  2. Sacral Chakra – Centre of Sexuality and Imagination
  3. Solar Plexus Chakra – Centre of Self-Esteem
  4. Heart Chakra – Centre of Love and Self-Acceptance
  5. Throat Chakras – Expression and Communication
  6. Third Eye Chakra – Wisdom and Intuition
  7. Crown Chakra – Knowing and Enlightenment

Meridians: A network of energy pathways that carry energy like how arteries carry blood. These pathways create flow of information and link the connective tissues of the body with different organs and parts of the body. There are 12 Principal Meridians and they are divided into Yin and Yang groups.

  • Yin – feminine, dark, associated with slow, soft, cold and wet (represented by water, earth, moon and nighttime)
  • Yang – masculine and light, associated with action, speed and aggressiveness (represented by sun, sky and daytime)

The Yin meridians of the arm are the lung, heart and pericardium. The Yang meridians of the arm are large intestine, small intestine and triple burner. The Yin Meridians of the leg are the spleen, kidney and liver. The Yang meridians of the leg are the stomach, bladder and gall bladder.

 

Similarities

  1. Both energies need to be well balanced for a person to be physically, emotionally, mentally and spirituality healthy.

The degree of Chakra and Meridian activity in a person’s body is dependent on the person’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual state of health.

In chakras, if there are deficiencies/excesses or ‘blocked’ or ‘open’ chakras, it might lead to certain physical and psychological problems. Eg. if root chakra is blocked or deficient, one may experience insecurity or fear.

In meridians, if the body has too much yin or too little yang, the body will be cold and slow, showing signs of low thyroid or metabolism. Similarly, if there is too much yang and too little yin, the body becomes hot and stimulated, showing signs of high thyroid state.

       2. Both have ‘tell-tale’ signs or symptoms that can be treated

In chakras, if someone feels that it is difficult to get emotionally close with people, his heart chakra might be blocked. If he or she is confused in his/her thoughts, it may be because of their 7th chakra (cognition may be overactive) etc. Yoga exercises (asanas or prayanamas) can help to solve these problems if one can be more aware of their emotions and problems.

In meridians, acupuncture points can be stimulated with needles or physical pressure to release or redistribute energy along the meridian pathway. If you feel tiredness or soreness in your body, acupuncture can be used to treat these points to improve body condition.

        3. Different yoga asanas can help to stimulate chakras and meridians 

In chakras, to overcome inertia and lack of motivation, one can do yoga exercises such as ‘Breath of Fire’, backbends and twisting poses) to help stimulate the third chakra and heat up the body and fill it with energy.

In meridians, if you want to bring forth the dark, slow, evening feminine energy of yin, you can do poses such as low lunge and forward bends whereas sun salutations and twisting poses help to create hot, bright, morning and masculine energy of yang.

        4. Interconnectedness with other parts of the body 

In chakras, a sensitive practitioner’s hand held over a chakra may resonate with pain in a related organ, congestion in a lymph node or even areas of emotional turmoil.

In meridians, if you press specific points along the skin where the meridians surface, they may be interconnected and you can feel the aches and tingles along the same meridian points.

 

Differences:

  1. Origin

Chakras were described as centers of consciousness in ancient Indian texts like the Yoga Upanishads and in the Yoga Sutras or Pantanjali.

The meridian theory was originally expressed by the Chinese on the basis of observations of illnesses and holistic treatment.

     2. Functions of the energy

The chakras are like pools or swirling disks of energy that bathe and fuel the organs in their proximity. They govern the endocrine system and carry information about the person’s history. They also encode and process physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual experiences.

In meridians, they deliver their energy to the organs. As the body’s energy bloodstream, the meridian system brings vitality and balance, removes blockages, adjusts metabolism, and even determines the speed and form of cellular change. The flow of the meridian energy pathways is as critical as the flow of blood. No energy = no life. Meridians affect every organ and every physiological system, including the immune, nervous, endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, skeletal, muscular, and lymphatic systems.

     3. Exercises to improve Chakra and Meridian 

One can perform yoga exercises such as meditation, prayanama or practice asanas to improve specific chakras.

The fluid movements of Sundao, Tai Chi and QiGong and techniques of acupuncture and acupressure apply the knowledge of the meridians to eliminate the blockages of energy and treat the disease.

 

Conclusion

Be it chakra or meridian, they work well together. Chakras bring energy into your body, while meridians sends the energy around your body. When they are in harmony, they are very powerful in enhancing your energy supply.

Essential oils and Chakra healing

My sister has been an advert avocate of essential oils such that she quited her job some years back and joined an MLM selling essential oils. So much so that when her sons are sick, she does not feed them medicine but instead bring out her whole box of essential oil and her manual of the different types and cures aka the essential oil encycropedia and started oiling my nephews.

At some point in time I think to myself if she had gone crazy, or is simply too obssesed with her own products that when one is sick, why done she just bring them to the doctors and let them do their job??

Blocked Chakras and Cancer

Now that I am in my forties, more and more stories of friends getting cancer and other terminal dieases are cropping up everyday. There were quite a few incidents of breast cancers, among galfriends or the old classmate that we have not heard about for the longest time, and the last news you get of them is that they just got breast cancer. And about a month ago, my own uncle died at the age of 59, succumbing to stomach cancer. Often I think to myself why are these happening to the people around us , and the frequency and the age that cancer appears seems to get more frequent and their victims younger.

And as these thoughts go through me, I discovered through a course on meditation, that cancers are not only caused by the unhealthy food that we eat, but a lot of times, are caused by the blocked energy that is trapped within our bodies. And a lot of times these blocked energies are cause by our own thoughts. A past we cannot let go, a person we cannot make ourselves forgive, or a misunderstanding that stood the test of time that never cleared up.

One of my galfriend, Ms. A, was going through a bad patch in her marriage. She and Husband have been at loggerheads for the longest time, because Husband loves a drink or two and are often at KTVs with women. Ms. A could not take it, and keep demanding that Husband stop his unnessary entertainments. Soon Ms. A started to develop breast cancer and had to go through Chemotherapy. Husband knowing this stopped his philandery ways and somehow her illness improved.

Another friend , Ms. B married a irresponsible man who does not bring home the dough and is never at home. She struggled for years and finally bring her heart to get a divorce. Soon after, she developed breast cancer. She went on to get herself treated, and two years later married a nice man who took great care of her and kid and cancer never visited her again.

At a meditation session, someone shared her life story of how she, at 60s developed stoamch cancer. Upon meditation for 6 months, she went back to her doctor and the Doctor miraculously declared her cancer free. She shared that she had a long standing feud with her own daugther which lasted for twenty years, upon discovering meditation, she found the courage to clear the air with her daugther and untie the knot that was within her for the past twenty years and thus unknowingly curing herself of cancer.

These personal experiences set me thinking. The hurt that these people are going through are the real cause of their cancer. In the yoga class when my trainer shared about the 7 chakras in our body, I learned that the chakras are positioned at the different parts of our bodies collecting different energies. When blocked, or imblanced, chakras stop turning and in turn causes the bad energy to stay inside us causing cancer.

Ms. A and Ms. B both had their hear broken by their husbands, and thats why they develop breast cancer, which is near their heart chakras. the old lady had stomach cancer, because she is not in a harmonious relationship with her own daugther. This affects her solar plexus chakra, which gave her stomach cancer. As for my own uncle who passed away last month I may never find out what his problem was. Why did stomach cancer visited him? Did he had problems with other? Did he felt pushed around, or he felt helpless? I probably will never find out..

 

Chakras and Emotions

There are in total 7 chakras in our body acting as energy collectors for us in our everyday lives. These are the Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra, and Crown Chakra. In order for our body to function properly, all our chakras need to be balanced and functioning properly.

In life, due to the different circumstances that we have met and the experiences of life, they leave emotional baggages and scars in us. Some examples are divorces, work stress, and the death of a love one. And often we forgot to cure or ease ourselves of such turmoils and choose to keep the unhappiness and sadness within ourselves. This will cause us to be emotionally imbalanced, which in turn causes our chakras to be blocked and function out of balnce. In the long term, an unbalanced chakra will lead to illness and diseases which may evolved to be cancer, which is life threatening.

It is therefore important for us to be mindful of our bodily functions and our own emotional state and how these in turn affects the functions of our chakras so that we can keep our chakras in balanced and our body free from illnesses.

Below are a list of the seven chakras and how they can be affected by the different emotions that we may have. With the possibilities of emotional issues linked with each chakras, one can then find out which of their chakras are in an imblanced state and thus seeking a cure or way to balance the chakra again.

Chakra – My Aura Reading

When Master Paalu taught us in the class, I was very curious and excited as I never heard of it before. We got to experience it in the class by guidance of Master Paalu. We partner each other of 2, and sitting face to face with a very near distance in a dark room and concentrate by  looking at each others’ eyes. Slowly you will see some color formed along his/her body.

An aura or a human energy field is a magnetic field that surrounds each living being and is sometimes described as a colored emanation or body around a human body or any animal object. The aura is comprised of seven layers or bodies–the physical, astral, lower, higher, spiritual, intuitional and absolute planes. They typically reveal traits and qualities of your energy or personality and affect and the colors may be read and referenced against your most open chakras. Your aura can provide insight into aspects of your spiritual, emotional and physical life.

My aura color is violet, it represents dynamic, charming and confident. creativity and enlightenment.

Violet represents the Crown Chakra, the area above the brow that stimulates the thought process and channels spirituality.

 These people are not exactly outgoing by nature, but they do love to interact with others and travel to far-off places in order to broaden their horizons and learn something new. 

Their natural leadership and intelligence can be mistaken for arrogance, or worse, even as narcissism.

They are in sync with their emotions as well as those of others, making them empathize with the feelings of others around them.

Purple personalities are curious and inquisitive, and love to gain in-depth knowledge regarding the fields that interest them. Those interacting with these personalities describe them as interesting and knowledgeable.

Their keen sense of intuition helps them delve into the future and enhance their decision-making ability.

 On the negative side, violets auras can lead people to become too materialistic, especially if they have not had their spiritual awakening.

 

Is it accurate?
I would say majority yes, the readings are quite accurately at some points.
