Kundalini energy moves up the body through the chakras, the body’s energy system. The chakras run through the body up and down the spine and they are they are connected to the body’s energetic system.
The Chakra system consists of 7 basic levels that correspond to various systems of the body.

Next, open the mouth and pant quickly. Once you have that rhythm in place, close your mouth and breathe through your nostrils.
