Workouts such as Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi and Chi Gong can touch and improve our lives in powerful, unexpected ways. Because these specialized physical routines also have contemplative aspects, they force us to slow down and pay gentle attention to the tightness in our bodies, offering a path to relaxation and stress reduction that is both effective and enjoyable.
This carefully curated selection of DVDs offers practices specifically designed for stress relief. Use them when needed to manage the stresses of your highly challenging days—or even better, weave them into a short daily routine to shore up your reserves of calm against the onslaughts of the world.
Devoting even 15 minutes a day to one of these practices can work wonders, whether you choose to do a short set as a morning practice or spend a few minutes as your “evening unwind” before you prepare for sleep.You’ll be amazed how each of these DVDs can improve your frame of mind, help you maintain more consistent emotional poise and balance, and improve your physical balance, flexibility, and strength.
