Have you ever wondered exactly how yoga impacts your nervous system? This book explores yoga practices ranging from as little as five minutes, to up to an hour to support you in overcoming common imbalances such as panic attacks, depression, inattention, and more. This book will help you design a step-by-step program that promotes your journey towards a balanced nervous system, allowing you to customize the duration and intensity of your home practice.
Explore pranayama (breathing exercise), namaskars (salutations or movement meditations), asana (poses), mudras (hand gestures), mantras (repeated sounds to control and focus our mind), and meditation. Learn how to synchronize practices with nature, use the elements to heal and enhance life-experience, and take advantage of increased energetic junctions such as the full moon when they occur. Craft a yogic home practice that is tailormade for your constitution and rooted in tradition that will ground, balance, and allow you to find optimal wellbeing.
