Scientific research has demonstrated that memory is stored within the body’s cells and may be conscious or subconscious. In health, the subtle energy flows throughout the chakra system to the cells of the body. However, following trauma or an accident etc., there is a reduction in this energetic flow, leading to an imbalance, which can surface as localised pain or discomfort. Specific body positions can also ignite cellular memory, surfacing as physical pain, mental anxiety, or emotional upset.
I have learned a great deal about the release of cellular memory through practising Iyengar Yoga and how specific body positions can ignite memory imprints at the cellular level (see Past Life Cellular Memory Surfacing through Yoga). I enjoyed continuing my research into this work on a visit to the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) in Pune, India.

I have learned a great deal about the body through practising Iyengar Yoga. I first became interested in past life memory when I attended a seminar about holistic healing by Carol Lamb. This led me to train in Soul Recall Therapy (the therapeutic release of memory imprints) with The Academy of Spiritual Sciences (with Carol as my tutor). Although I was aware that yoga and soul recall bring integration, balance and harmony to the human energy field (known in yoga as the five kosas or subtle sheaths of the being) I had not realised any further links until my own therapy sessions began to reveal a pattern. During my yoga classes, in some positions, I experienced unexplained physical discomfort or mental and emotional anxiety but had not known why. Carol, as my therapist and tutor, explained to me that specific body positions can ignite memory at the cellular level.
