Reversing Kyphosis and Opening the Heart in Purna Yoga

Due to our modern lifestyle, kyphosis is becoming ever more common. The health of your spine determines the health of your whole body. Also, if the spine isn't aligned properly then the heart chakra is also compromised. When the spine is aligned and moving freely there is more energy that flows through your body. Aadil will teach you how to move your spine towards it's optimum health so that you can live more joyfully from your heart.

Relieving Stress and Healing Yourself with Purna Yoga Practices The major cause for all illness is stress. All stress is held in the nervous system first. When the nervous system is saturated the stress flows into the muscles and organs of the body. Muscles become tighter, blood flow di-minishes, and the body becomes weaker and stiffer. Since most stress is perceived stress, controlling the mind is crucial to the release of stress. Purna Yoga® is a powerful solution for relieving stress. Learn yogic tech-niques for controlling the mind and therefore releasing the stress in your life. Aadil will cover asana (including restoratives), pranayama, yogic philosophy, and nutritional secrets that will make you feel more relaxed, alert, and alive. Don't miss this one!
