Kundalini Yoga helps with depression and low energy of Hashimoto’s disease (autoimmune, thyroid imbalance)


Herein is a Guest Blog written by a woman in our 6am yoga class.  She’s an internationally-known artist who works with diverse mediums and specializes in glass blowing!  I LOVE her work – it’s organic (alive!) and deeply moving. The featured image for this blog is one of her prints called “Tree of Life”.  You should see her studio and the huge glass-blown pendulum she made for the Chicago Natural History Museum !

Working with her and witnessing her process as an artist once again shows me how the infinite and creative Spirit is higher than any dis-ease.

Thanks, Susan, for sharing:

Kundalini Yoga has helped me cope with Hashimoto’s disease.  Hashimoto’s is an autoimmune imbalance that attacks the thyroid, bringing depression and extremely low in energy.  Some of the depression is physical and some mental – sometimes both.

Two years ago I spent almost 6 months in bed.  I am an artist and I felt a great deal of sadness for I was losing my inspiration and desire to work; essentially it was making me feel despondent.

For me, part of the path of being an artist is that when I’m working, I feel I’m in the “zone”.  When I am not working, I lose touch with myself and feel a separation from the divine.  This is very confusing.

 Taking Guruatma’s 6am Kundalini Yoga class and consulting with her one-on-one has given me a practice and tools to help with these issues, as well as giving me support.

  1. Thank you for posting. Kundalini is so great for balancing the immune system through unknowable numbers of ways. I know with Hashimoto’s, I feel better doing some of the kriyas that include repetitive gentle neck extension. And the many things we do for the digestive track from sufi grinds to twists to standing forward bends help improve the gut, I believe, which is the starting point for all autoimmune disease including Psoriasis, Rheumatoid, MS, Lupus, Hashimoto’s, Crohn’s, and many others. Moving energy through the system with emphasis on the glands and self-blessing, an unconditional positive regard for yourself goes a long way in living well with autoimmunity. Thank you Mehtab Benton in Austin, TX for introducing so many of us to Kundalini and the Gong. Blessings to the community and thank you Yogi Bhajan.
