Integral Yoga as Stress Management with Swami Vidyananda
Stress is not an event, it's our reaction to events. Yoga was designed to help us lead happier, more peaceful and joyful lives. Since the emotions play a key role in our health, Integral Yoga teaches many practices that uplift our feelings and de-stress our bodies and minds. This DVD (from two talks given at Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville) shows how Yoga teaches us to control our emotional reactions in order to remain calm and happy.
Yoga offers us a brilliant insight: we can transform the emotions by first calming and balancing the body through Yoga postures and breathing. Then we are ready to use the power of the mind to awaken inner wisdom and joy through the subtle practices of Yoga and meditation. Learn relaxation techniques to heal stress and simple techniques using symbolic imagery to feel and heal the emotions. Also learn stretches and other techniques you can easily do right in your office, as well as how to take Yoga off the mat to develop healthier responses and a more stress-free life.
