What Do Kate Hudson, Alicia Keys And Kelly Rutherford Have In Common? They Loved 'Kundalini Yoga'
What do they have in common? They all love Kundalini yoga - an ancient yoga practice that integrates meditation, chanting and breathing workouts - with Guru Jagat, a Los Angeles-based senior teacher.
"I have had the penchant of practicing with Guru Jagat, and Kundalini has been one of my desired forms of meditation and yoga exercise," Hudson, 37, tells PEOPLE. "Guru Jagat has an attractive way of bringing a youthful and accessible method to an ancient practice, and her job is to bring more people into this program of reaching a collective higher awareness."
Rutherford praises Jagat by helping her get through tough times and trials in her personal life. "The meditation, breathing and focus helps to relax," the actress, 48, tells PEOPLE. "The exercise builds trust within yourself and attunes you to a feeling of love, forgiveness and kindness."
Now, Jagat is sharing some of her best health and well-being tips in her new book, Invincible Living, which shares how Kundalini practices can be used to slow the aging development, jumpstart metabolism, boost mood, cut stress and increase inventiveness.
No Yoga Mat Required For These Four Best Calming Tips
- To Have An Effective Meeting With Your Boss - "When you talk with your boss, particularly if he is male, look at his third eye, the area on his forehead right between the eyebrows," says Jagat. "Pulse and project a positive note right there. That's going straight to his pituitary gland and it will be an useful way to get across what you want to say."
- To Instantly Calm Down - "Take off your shoes under your desk and let your feet touch the ground. When you place your bare feet on the ground, each one of your 72,000 nerve fibers uptakes the electromagnetic pulse of the earth, which makes you promptly calmer. You can quickly good-sooth and switch gears."
- To Relieve Everyday Stress - "Practice the short healthy, happy, holy breath: Inhale through the nose and hang the breathing. Silently repeat the mantra, 'Healthy am I, Happy am I, Holy am I' three times. As you exhale, repeat the mantra aloud three times. You'll need to have your index finger and thumb tip touching. You will be reaching your hypothalamus using your lips, tongue, and vocal chords. This unswervingly changes the frequency where your adrenals release stress hormones."
- To Relieve Extreme Stress - "Stoop into the bathroom and massage the inside of your armpits with cold water for one to three minutes. This gets to the precise spot on your physique where your three nervous systems meet. It's a place where toxins and stress cause obstructions. The massage will give you an on the spot burst of energy and positive spirits."
In the custom of Kundalini Yoga, God is not the fleshy deity in the sky. Not even close. The essence of God is the same spirit of us. God is creative mindfulness, the energy from which all things move, including ourselves. We can access Brahman because it is already part of us. This is to say, we are each individually expressive of the same collective energy. Kundalini is the method to get rid of our false Ego description of separation and experience the true nature of our being. Not bad for a little office stretching, right?
