ANCIENT YOGIC PRACTICES FOR MODERN PRACTITIONERS
by Leila Worby
Did you ever wonder exactly how yoga impacts your nervous system? Or how to craft a yogic home practice that is tailormade for your constitution? A home practice that is rooted in tradition and that will ground, balance, and allow you to find optimal wellbeing?
We will explore yoga practices as short as 5 minutes, to support you in overcoming common imbalances such as panic attacks, depression, inattention, and more. This book will give you a step-by-step program to help promote your journey towards a balanced nervous system. It contains broken-down suggestions of up to hour-long programs for different afflictions, so you can custom make the duration and intensity of your home practice. We will explore pranayama (breathing exercise), namaskars (salutations or movement meditations), asana (postures), mudras (hand gestures), mantras (repeated sounds to control and focus our mind), and meditation.
We will also outline ways of synchronizing our practices with nature, ways to use the elements as healing and to enhance our life-experience, and ways to take advantage of increased energetic junctions such as the full moon when they occur. If you always wanted to know why we do certain practices in yoga, craft a rich, personal, and transforming home practice, this book is for you.
