Five Minute Practices for Inner Peace

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.

Extract

The greatest misunderstanding of our kind, is that we have to “become” something and that we have to accumulate wealth in order to fill our inner void. Most societies reinforce these views, so very few of us manage to live in the moment without striving. We end up wasting our short time on this earth by chasing desires that, when consummated, only leave us feeling more empty than before. We can accumulate what we believe to be the ideal life or the perfect career or a garage full of luxury cars, only to feel that void greater than ever. Because the chase has ended, we got what we wanted, but we are still not fulfilled. At least as long as you’re chasing, you are occupied. But for the ”lucky“ few who get there, the void becomes unbearable. Or rather the lack of knowledge of how to fill that void. The emptiness that you feel inside you, that can sometimes threaten to engulf you, wants to be filled with life force, not material objects.

Thank you, Leila Worby and RABT Book Tours
