We all struggle with stress and most of us have had at least one traumatic experience in our lives. It takes a lot of energy to get through these experiences, and most of us don't fully process or release that energy. We move on, letting the stagnant and toxic energy of stress or trauma remain in our bodies, quietly breaking us down. But what if you had simple, practical, and gentle tools to truly heal from your traumas and stressors? The Energy To Heal gives you just that!
Clear your energetic pathways and calm the storm of your stressful modern life with this unique healing system. Perfected over years of study, Energy Medicine Yoga is a customizable program with step-by-step practices that help you recover from trauma and gain resilience. Combining yoga and energy work with the five elements, this book teaches you how to respond, rather than react, to triggers and ultimately diminish their effect on you.
