For everyone, including yoga and health professionals.
Come home to the joy that is your birthright. Beneath your aches, pains, and shifting moods, you are bliss. Let Deborah E. Lubetkin guide you through self-inquiry with practices that release whatever blocks you from remembering who you truly are.
Based on the protocols developed by Amy Weintraub, author of Yoga for Depression, Deborah offers accessible poses, pranayama, and yoga nidra, along with practices drawn from nondual and tantric traditions, including
- LifeForce Yoga® Bliss Meditation
- Mudras to awaken joy
- Mantras for courage and strength
- Meditation and pranayama to clear the chakras and cultivate love and compassion
- Sacred dance
- Self-inquiry in dyads.
Many of these practices are suitable for use in a clinical setting. Healing professionals are invited to learn tools for their own self-care, as well as for those they serve.
