Yoga to rebalance - instinct vs reason

Please click on the video below to watch, 'Yoga to rebalance-instinct vs reason'-on my YouTube Channel.

Please read the disclaimer on the blog before following these videos -http://flexiladies.blogspot.co.uk/p/disclaimer.html

The best decisions are born of a combination of both reason and instinct but so often we do not trust our instincts. We should - our instincts harness the power of our subconscious, that part of your mind that you are usually unaware of.  We only tend to use a very small percentage of our subconscious mind in our daily lives.  We may have glimpses of our subconscious mind in dreams but these are often forgotten when we wake.  However we can access the subconscious mind when we are in deep states of relaxation as in meditation or yoga nidra which is yogic sleep. In these deeply relaxed states, the subconscious mind will endeavor to fulfill any suggestions made to it as with 'I am calm'. You will find your behaviour undergoes subtle changes, so that you do indeed find that on a daily basis you meet challenges in a more reasoned way rather than a reactive way.

Another way in which we can access our subconscious mind is to calm our conscious mind which is what we endeavor to do in this week's yoga video.  We practice chest openers which increase lung capacity bringing more brain calming oxygen into the body.  Inversions and forward bends bring that oxygen to the brain.  We also include poses and exercises that will balance the third eye chakra, the home of our intuition.
