Private Yoga Instruction by Certified Teacher, Jasmine Kaloudis
Simply put...yoga is a series of physical postures, breath work, meditation, and relaxation to improve health, well-being and your connection to yourself. Yoga is not about tying your body into knots; as we are already tied into knots due to stress in our lives. Practice yoga to untie the knots within our bodies and our hearts. When we allow ourselves to unfold we reconnect with the infinite happiness, balance, radiant health and peace that already resides within us all.
On a physical level, the poses help to tone and stretch muscles. They also help with balance as well and help to develop motor and sensory skills. The more vigorous poses help to build endurance. On an emotional level, the poses help to develop concentration, empathy, focus, confidence, self-esteem, respect for others, improved attitude, more positive outlook.
There is so much information out there regarding weight loss. Some are new fads and dieting ideas. Some are "new" forms of exercise. By using Yoga as your weight loss solution and this book as your weight loss system, you are entering into a 5000 year old science which we are just now starting to study and understand.
Yoga makes you more susceptible to influence for change -- so if you are thinking you want to change your lifestyle, you want to change the way you think about food, you want to get over destructive eating patterns, yoga will help give you the spiritual connection to your body that can help you make those changes. Essentially, in yoga you learn your body is not your enemy, and the conscious awareness of the body that you gain translates into better appetite control.http://www.synergybyjasmine...
