DAO FLOW YOGA /DVD
BY DR. SARASWATI MARKUS
Dao Flow Yoga is a brilliant and sophisticated
synergy of yoga, Chinese medicine, and the
Dao. This is a nourishing and effective home
practice for women seeking to enhance their
fertility as well as restore and optimize hormonal balance and overall health.
Each of the four one-hour sequences are focused practices designed to activate specific
meridians with a healing effect similar to what
you might get in an acupuncture treatment. Dr.
Markus incorporates specific asanas, bandhas,
and pranayama practices which expertly guide
the practitioner in coming into balance, bringing increased blood flow and energy into the
pelvis, harmonizing yin and yang, restoring
vitality, and resetting hormonal balance. The
four sequences align with the four phases of
the menstrual cycle.
As a student, I particularly enjoyed the sense of
deep honoring of the feminine that Dr. Markus
infuses in her teaching, evoking a sense of
peace, and nurturing deep relaxation and
contentment in the practitioner—essential elements for women's health as well as for those
seeking to get pregnant.
Dr. Markus weaves her professional expertise
as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine specializing
in fertility and women’s health with her training and experience as a yoga teacher in this
intelligent DVD that is a bountiful gem of empowering knowledge for health, vitality, and
enhanced fertility. It is an essential addition for
every woman's home practice library.
