Nature’s endowments. While modern psychology effectively helps in creating an awareness of what causes this, the Yoga philosophy is capable of changing one’s overall attitude towards life. This book combines both and provides valuable guidelines, tips, and techniques. Yoga offers the complete toolkit to deal with psychological and psychosomatic disorders that are globally on the rise.
With yogic techniques one can understand the nature of human consciousness and attain its higher stages. Using yogic practices like meditation and Pranayama, one can delve deep within and connect the body and mind to the inner self. By enhancing the latent energy in man, yoga offers a holistic solution to erase conflicts, suppression, and sensitivity.
Book Review: Yoga and Stress Management
I was really impressed with this little book.
My friend has been encouraging me to try yoga for some time and I have never taken that plunge. Through reading this book I found that there is so much more to the practice of Yoga than I ever imagined!
This little book shows how in just a few minutes (or less) every day you can improve your mood, stop feeling stress, relive pain, sleep better at night, and, overall, just lead a happier, healthier life.
Yoga and Stress Management by Acharya Yatendra is well written with easy to follow steps; explaining the purpose and root of each practice. Throughout the book I felt that I was being educated on the amazing and ancient art of Yoga. It was written in an easy to understand matter without “dumping it down.” I felt enlightened and never belittled for my lack of previous knowledge on the subject.
There was plenty of interesting information, anecdotes, and some actual research about the usefulness of paying attention to your own body and mind. The author did a great job of presenting his view in such a way as to not shut down a sceptical reader.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to regain control of a hectic life, or who have been interested in developing a mediation practice but didn’t know where to start. It would also be an interesting read for those who do meditation on a daily basis.
