Healing Moves is a simple, effective, and transformative yoga for anyone and everyone, designed to inspire, enlighten, and embolden people of every ability and age to adopt movement as a healing practice.
The curative powers of physical movement have been documented and respected not only since ancient times but also by modern science. Research indicates that physical activity may be the most essential aspect in promoting healthfulness and preventing disease, and regular movement strengthens your heart, enhances your lungs’ capacity, boosts your immune system’s defense system, and revs up your metabolism. Use Healing Moves Yoga from Carol Krucoff to help alleviate tension, relax your mind and body, and restore your energy.
This CD is divided into five even sections to help you focus on every aspect of your body and soul. Breathing and centering works to unite the mind and body through breath, while warm-up poses give your body a head-to-toe stretch with added strengthening postures. Standing poses and lying down poses both offer opportunities for stretching and strengthening, and the final relaxation section guides you through an all-over body tension reliever.
Healing Moves is for people of all ages, sizes, and abilities. Whether you are new to yoga or an experienced yogi, this practice is based on challenging yourself while avoiding injury to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
Join Carol Krucoff, a yoga therapist and fitness expert for the last 30 years, for a safe and effective way to bring movement and motion to everyone. Healing Moves provides yoga for anyone, bringing audio practice into the comfort and calm of your own home.
