What is guided relaxation?
The benefits of meditation, mindfulness and yoga are well known, but there is another practice which can be just as effective at creating calm – guided relaxation.
Guided relaxation is a form of yoga which involves coming into a position of supported rest, which automatically promotes the relaxation response. Gradually awareness shifts from the external to the internal world, muscle tension begins to release, the breath begins to slow and lengthen invoking a sense of stillness and peace in the mind, culminating in an environment where healing and deep rest can occur.
This book is a complete guide to practising guided relaxation for everyone from seasoned yoga teachers to beginners. It includes:
- Positions for your practice
- Benefits of relaxation
- How to get the most from your practice
- A beautiful choice of more than 30 scripted relaxations
- Relaxations include chakras, the seasons, elements of nature and positive affirmations and so many more…
Compiled by senior Yoga teacher and writer: Katie Brown – this book is a treat for your mind, body and spirit
