Dynamic Embodiment™ of the Sun Salutation: Pathways to Balancing the Chakras and the Neuroendocrine System guides you to do the Sun Salutation with more ease by integrating awareness of glandular and chakral embodiment cues and neuro-developmental movement. Everything in this book can be applied to your personal practice and overall health, or to teaching others. It offers a soft, organic yet powerful approach to being in the poses and transitioning between them. What you will learn is effective and surprising. There is tangible mystery in accessing this ability, which we all have, to embody the endocrine system and the related energy fields.
By working with the endocrine system and their correlations with the chakras we are grounding the subtle within the physical body. Learn about the dynamic combination of the specific electrical and systemic circulatory nature of the neuroendocrine system. Discover how the anatomical placement of the glands and the spatial tensions (or tensegrity) surrounding them are the natural bridge to activating the energy needed for a fulfilling life.
Covering the history, purpose and evolution of the Sun Salutation, this book provides a multi-layered approach to engaging this potent ritual in personally tailored ways to meet goals – health, life, and spiritual domains are all addressed. These pathways for individual glandular experience are also viewed within cultural and historical contexts, making reference to somatic awareness, social and cultural somatics, trauma, and polyvagal imbalance.
Dynamic Embodiment™ of the Sun Salutation is an important book for every yoga teacher, somatic practitioner and person desirous of embodiment.
