A specialty of Pathways Yoga Training, "Body Awareness", a wellness approach that optimizes the physical, psychological well-being and spiritual aspects of each student, allows Pathways teachers to provide customized programs that work with your doctors and therapists recommendations.

BODY AWARENESS

The Body Awareness technique is a slow, wave-like motion with the focus on combining breathing and body movements while maintaining your concentration on how your body feels at each "pressure-point" of change in the exercise.

It should be an isolated movement with the rest of the body as totally relaxed as possible. This is a form of moving meditation, which requires the practioner to use mental as well as physical energy to do each exercise properly.

Doing this form of practice daily will have the ultimate accomplishment of letting the practioner become aware of the exact places of discomfort/pain in the body. It will help to identify strong and stress relieving areas surrounding those places that can be used to facilitate healing. Gradually, (depending on the time, focus and dedication of the practioner) one learns the exercises that help the most and can then begin to formulate a personal exercise routine.

Unfortunately,all problems cannot be totally healed, but this form of exercise will bring attention to areas that need to be addressed and/or help to prevent any further deterioration of those areas.

The practitioner will then be aware of needing to:

1. Do new or additional exercises.

2. Go to a health practitioner for aid before the problem can accelerate into distress.

Remember that the goal of this program is self-awareness. The combination of physical (body and breath) movements and mental concentration help to focus each practice internally. Stress reduction will be a natural result of these exercises.
