Kundalini Yoga for Willpower
Third Chakra Activation for Self-Confidence
Recently quite a bit of feedback regarding how the Free Online Yoga & Meditation Classes have been benefiting readers and uplifting their lives has been pouring in, and I would like to share some of these inspiring testimonials with you.
Third Chakra Feedback:
Here is feedback from Marie about how developing the Third Chakra helped boost her willpower and personal power. The net result of this, was her ability to deliver a killer presentation and handle the audience’s questions with poise, composure, clarity and confidence.
You can read more about the charkas in the article Kundalini Yoga Seven Chakra System Overview. Essentially, the Third Chakra (or Navel/Manipura Chakra), resides in the Solar Plexus region and is responsible for willpower, physical energy, confidence and personal power. A very key area to develop early in one’s yoga practice to ensure long term commitment and resolve.
Just wanted to give a quick update. The exercises you recommended for the third chakra have really really helped. I’ve been doing them every morning and can feel the stirrings of a stronger 3rd chakra in me. A few days ago I had to give a lengthy presentation to a rather large audience of academics and I’ve never been more together for such a presentation than I was for that one. At some point in the middle of it I became a bit nervous, and then focused on standing straight and making sure the muscles around my third chakra were holding me up, (keeping me from slumping as if I wanted to melt away under the podium). What an instant difference it made. I carried through with the lecture and with real confidence and focus to do a good job.
I got lots of praise afterwards, which was great, but there was one professor who asked a hostile question…I was inspired with an answer that allowed me to put him in his place while keeping everything pleasant, professional and sincere. People keep telling me how great my reply to him was (no one cared much for his attitude).
ANYWAY, sorry to ramble, but I could feel my third chakra at work through this experience, and it not only got me through the rough spots, but I walked away with a real sense of accomplishment (something I’d been lacking for much too long). I had the willpower to prepare and present my lecture well, and I had the character to defeat hostility with grace, truth, and razor sharp effectiveness. It was fantastic!
In other words, thanks for recommending the exercises for the third chakra, they’re really helping.

Daily Yoga Practice Feedback:
One of the key elements of a yoga and meditation practice, that I simply cannot emphasize enough, is developing a daily, regular practice. I think the online classes are a perfect way to commit to a daily practice and thus help establish one. If I had to recommend one class to help you with this important goal, it would be the Introduction to Kundalini Yoga & Meditation Class.
Here is an email from Susannah of how the website has helped her develop a daily yoga practice. Once you do this, everything else will take care of itself. Just do your daily spiritual work and forget about the results, they will flow on their own. This is not just my experience, but that of others as well who apply themselves towards spiritual evolution.
I have been visiting your site for several months now.
Having been a serious seeker for so many years I realized I was filled up and needed to empty.
I chose to do this through yoga and this is where you became my closest ally.
From being one who firmly resisted physical movement and discipline to someone who practices every day – I have to say gratitude abounds.
