Overview

A Powerful How-To Guide for Energetic Self-Care

When you’re dealing with a health issue, what kind of energy practice will help the most? "To bring ourselves back into wellness," teaches Lauren Walker, "we first have to understand what brought our body out of wellness. When we return to balance, the body is best able to heal itself." With The Energy Medicine YogaPrescription, Lauren brings you an invaluable guide to help you uncover the root causes of specific physical, emotional, and psychological health complaints—along with a treasury of potent self-care practices to accelerate your healing.

This easy-to-use resource includes:

• Simple instructions for learning to sense and diagnose your body’s subtle energy

• The Five Elements System—the ancient healing practice at the heart of Energy Medicine Yoga

• Easy reference charts to match hundreds of health complaints with the most effective energy healing practice

• Links to training videos to help guide you in many Energy Medicine Yoga techniques

• The three most important Ayurvedic techniques to change your life right now

• Guidance for creating your own daily practice—and maintaining good health and balance on and off the yoga mat

"If you want to affect the physical matter that is your body and the invisible matter that is your mind and your soul," says Lauren Walker, "the most effective practice you can learn is how to work with your own energy." With The Energy Medicine Yoga Prescription, she brings you a solution-oriented manual to complement any health regimen—filled with essential insights for well-being, techniques to activate your body’s natural healing intelligence, and a powerful new vision for happiness and wholeness.

The Energy Medicine Yoga Prescription 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
he parts in this book about traditional Yoga were good. However, the "Energy Medicine" part of the was totally confusing and I did not see how it connected with traditional yoga practice. I thought "Energy Medicine" had something do to with Eastern Medicine like the Chakras or Chi. However, it seems to be something totally different. The book did not convince me to learn more about Energy Medicine and to add it just seem to complicate a Yoga practice to add it. (I find it hard enough to do basic meditation and yoga routines. I am of the Keep It Simple School of thought in terms of exercise and self care). Furthermore, I thought there was too much theoretical information for what is marketed as a self-help book. I think self-help books should be practical and action oriented with just enough of the theory to convince you that it is worthwhile to do the practice. The straight yoga parts of the book were good. There were many interesting Yoga poses demonstrated. Thus, I found this well written as a straight yoga book but I did not like the part about Energy Medicine. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
