Big Yoga for Less Stress
[a Simple Guide to Reducing Everyday Anxiety]Book - 2015
Whether it's relationships, work, politics, or life in general, we seem to be surrounded by things and people that give us stress. We wake up with it, carry it around with us, and even take it to bed. We know we're stressed because we experience the telltale symptoms--tension headaches, nervousness, exhaustion, high blood pressure, and lowered immunity. We may try to ignore these symptoms or even cover them up with medications, but over time, this can lead to even more serious medical problems. While it's easy to blame outside forces, the truth is that within ourselves, we have the power to control, reduce, and even eliminate the stress we feel. For over thirty-five years Meera Patricia Kerr, best-selling author and gifted Yoga instructor, has taught thousands of men, women, and children how to overcome their anxiety and experience greater physical and emotional health. In her new book, Big Yoga for Less Stress, Meera provides a complete program of movements and exercises to combat all the stressors in our lives.
Part One of Big Yoga for Less Stress begins with a clear explanation of what Yoga is, what benefits it offers, and how it can be used as an effective tool to reduce stress. The book goes on to provide practical information regarding clothing, mats, and suitable environments, and to emphasize the need to begin with care and avoid initial strains and pains. Part Two offers a wealth of Yoga postures and movements, breathing techniques, and meditations specifically designed to overcome tension and anxiety. In each case, the author explains the technique, details its advantages, and offers clear instructions for its use. Easy-to-follow photographs accompany every exercise, while boxed insets provide further insights into Yoga and explore its many fascinating aspects.
If you're tired of being affected by the pressures of everyday life--and if popping pills doesn't seem to hold the answer--perhaps it's time to consider an alternative approach. Used by millions of people around the world, Yoga is a safe and effective way to find the calm and tranquility that is within you.
