We start the video with some Ujjayi breathing.  The other name for this breathing technique is Victorious breath, and since we are endeavouring to overcome pain, I thought this was appropriate. Ujjayi breathing is heating for the body, which in itself can help with pain.   It also acts as an internal massage for your organs which may help with pain relief.  Focusing on the sound of the breath is also a distraction from the pain which is a valuable tool in managing chronic pain.  

We warm up with some stretches, half salutations and full salutations adapted for the chair.

I have chosen to focus on the Warrior poses in the video, including the Dancing Warrior sequence. These poses build confidence and are empowering enabling us to be strong in our fight against pain.

I have also included Goddess Squat which is also known as Victory Squat, again fitting our purpose.  In fact the Sanskrit name for the pose translates as ‘powerful’.  The pose represents the feminine power of the universe, and it doesn’t come much more powerful than that!!

We then move into a quieter part of our practice in preparation for meditation.  Our meditation is a ‘Healing waterfall’ meditation.  Visualisation such as this is a powerful tool in the healing process.  Visualisation ‘plants’ ideas in the subconscious.  Now the subconscious is very obedient and will endeavour to fulfil any ideas planted there, in this case, the pain being ‘washed’ away.  This is why it is important to have positive thoughts as worry can become ‘a prayer for chaos’.

It is my sincere hope that this series will help.  Please let me know how you are getting on.

Namaste
