In March, we will have lots of fluctuations in temperatures. And similarly, our moods can experience extremes of highs and lows, too. The positive mind of the #3 (3rd month of the year) can reach for the heights and think too positively without the balance of the negative mind's gift of "what could go wrong". We can also get so depressed that we can't think of anything that can go right and find ourselves descending to the lows. There is a parallel of the #3 to the Pisces tendency to addiction. Either extreme can take us to cravings for food, drugs, alcohol, and other negative habits.
If we develop a meditation practice, we can see the highs and lows from a neutral point of observation. By practicing this, we won't get angry or depressed when things don't go the way we imagine. Scientific studies say that exercise is one of the best anti-depressants, so get out there and do some exercise--how about Kundalini Yoga? The Chinese medicine approach to the seasons teaches us that it is a time when the liver/gall bladder energy is strong. Use this energy to move and not get angry!
One advantage of our Kundalini Yoga practice is the exercises (asanas) are followed by meditations. In this month's kriyas we will stimulate the lymphatic and immune systems to move the stagnant toxicity of the cold winter months and channel our emerging Springtime energy. The meditations we'll practice will allow us to experience the positive mind.
Love, peace, and blessings,

Monday nights from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. -- taught by Mukta
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is a dynamic form of yoga that combines breath, movement, meditation, rhythmic sound, and deep relaxation. It is practical for the average person because it works to release tension and energize in a short period of time, regardless of the degree of flexibility or experience.
These classes are taught in the tradition of Yogi Bhajan who first brought Kundalini Yoga to the West 50 years ago, in 1969. This yoga is taught in specific sequences of exercises (Kriyas) that create optimum health by strengthening the immune system, balancing the glands, and creating a heightened level of awareness.
