Conduct Your Own Health Orchestra

Did you know orchestra conductors live longer than nearly any other group of people? Many conductors have lived well into their 80’s and 90’s. There’s been numerous research projects done into the reasons why – and I want to share some findings with you as it’s pretty much all the benefits you’ll get through many of our kundalini kriyas – for the same reasons.


Hands up in the air! Conductors spend a lot of time with their arms raised up in the air rotating around and moving above shoulder height.  Raising the arms UP and bringing movement through the upper body and arms is excellent for the cardiovascular system, as the muscles of the chest expand and the lungs open – drawing more breath into the body. Blood flow increases to the heart, causing it to pump strongly so blood and nutrients flow through the body to the muscles and organs.

Blissing out with sound immersion. Another reason posed by many researchers as to why conductors lead long, healthy lives is because they immerse themselves daily in the sound frequency of emotive and moving orchestral music. This sound frequency immersion creates an Alpha state reaction in the brain.

An Alpha state is a relaxed state of connection to something bigger and more beautiful than the day to day. When you are truly relaxed, your brain activity slows from the rapid patterns of a Beta state into the more gentle waves of an Alpha state. In an Alpha state, awareness expands, creative energy begins to flow, fears and limitations move aside. You experience a liberating sense of peace and well being.

Kundalini yoga mantra creates this sound immersion experience. Lifting our spirits to an Alpha state.  From this Alpha state, we transition to the even deeper relaxed state of Theta – where we drop into meditation.
