Perhaps you have personally experienced how Yoga can support your path in relieving symptoms of physical discomfort? In Ronald's new book you are given insight into how to maintain or increase health in the body with yoga. There are numerous exercises and sequences which are clearly described with pictures, making this an incredible resource for any practitioner to have in hand's reach.
Have you already heard of his four secrets to restoring wellbeing through yoga? Below we break down these four points for you:
Take responsibility for yourself. Personal responsibility can be equally a curse and a blessing. This is an opportunity to see the exercises and a way to positively influence your health. You are no longer helpless, but rather empowered and have a tool that you can use to improve your current condition. Let's do this!
Focus on the positive and the good in your life. This again refers to your health and your body. We want to inspire you to cultivate your own wellbeing through your yoga practice. A regular yoga practice that is wholesome will ensure that you maintain a sense of physical and emotional balance. This is not about trying to ease some sort of physical dis-ease. Through yoga, you practice is a regular part of your daily routine that promotes holistic balance, thus promoting health in every aspect of our being.
Holistic balance is the key to success. You've probably experienced this one first-hand at some point. If you have a cold, you become lethargic. You see the world in a more negative light than when you are at your physical best. Perhaps you had a really stressful week at work and by the time the weekend comes around you feel physical discomfort. In yoga, we are aware that there is a strong correlation with your emotional and physical state. Through specific yoga exercises and techniques, the goal is always to bring back or maintain balance in the individual. It's a bit abstract until you give it a try for yourself, which we highly recommend to anyone who may be skeptical.
Meet yourself where you are. What does that mean? Yoga is taking place in the here and now. Only when you realize and accept your current state can you take action to positively influence that state. This is all about the right mindset, which is necessary if you want to enhance your overall health. The best way to start is to accept yourself for who you are here and now, and then make the best out of it.
Now you have been introduced to the four aspects of what can help you to improve your own well-being. Whatever your current physical or mental state, these four points can only help you to enhance that.
