Yoga Therapy and Viniyoga™
Viniyoga therapy recognizes that human experience plays out on a vast multidimensional field characterized by continual change. These dimensions—thought, mood, behavior, the body’s physiology and anatomy, our family, society, physical environment, and the surrounding cosmos—can be thought of as nine “cities” or spheres of existence that overlap and interpenetrate one another. Viniyoga therapy offers the means to develop the physical energy, mental clarity, emotional stability, and determination to respond to the variable conditions in each of these domains in the most appropriate and effective way. This DVD achieves these goals for conditions of anxiety through two efficient practices:
• Practice #1 is designed to create physiological balance
• Practice #2 invites the practitioner to experience directly their ability to shift their mood and alter their self-concept.
Practice #2 also features the use of ‘mantra japa’ or chanting, which is one of the most profound methods of the yoga tradition for physiological and psycho-emotional transformation. The meaning of these Sanskrit mantras are simple and universal, reminding us that our true nature is not defined by our momentary thoughts, feelings and circumstances.
