ABOUT THE BOOK:
A simple yet profound way to create a healthy body, a stress-free mind, and peaceful sense of well-being.
Zen Yoga is the culmination of the more than twenty five years of study and training by its founder Aaron Hoopes in the practical and spiritual arts of Japan, China, India.Zen Yoga is a gentle practice, combining the mindful serenity of Zen Meditations, the graceful movements of Tai Chi, the energized breathing of Qigong, and the peaceful stretching of Shanti Yoga.
By blending the essential elements from these four practices, Zen Yoga works on a number of levels physical, mental, and spiritual. On the physical plane, breathing, moving, stretching, and relaxing exercises promote a healthy body by providing a well-balanced toning of the muscles and organs. Mentally, Zen Yoga can play a substantive role in neutralizing stress and increasing concentration. It also improves blood circulation, boosts metabolism, betters the immune system, encourages weight loss, and promotes restful sleep.
At a deeper, more spiritual level, Zen Yoga fosters harmony in your daily life by helping you live in full awareness of the present moment and by opening the way to enlightenment. Best of all, it fits easily into the busiest schedule. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced practitioner, Zen Yoga offers a new way of achieving health and an inner peace that is at once accessible, gentle, and adaptable to current yoga practices.
Zen Yoga is a perfect supplement for martial artists, dancers, gymnasts, athletes or anyone involved in physical arts. It prepares the body to respond to whatever you ask of it.
