The definition of good health is a sense of well-being. But the pressures of modern living can often make this difficult to achieve. The four therapies described in this book will introduce you to a range of approaches that are designed to help you to unwind, and to get the best from every day. The Pilates mind-body system is the favored exercise system of top models, dancers, and sports people. Combining gentle exercise with mind-focus, Pilates puts very little strain on the body, and can be taken up by almost anyone of any age, and level of fitness. Yoga has its roots in ancient wisdom, and has been practised for over 4,000 years. Using physical poses, it is simultaneously energizing and relaxing, and is a means of harmonizing the mind, body and spirit. Meditation improves concentration, increases self-awareness, and helps to combat stress through relaxation. It can even help you to improve your relationships with others. Stress relief uses a combination of therapies and techniques, to offer simple, but effective ways of making physical and mental relaxation an integral part of your everyday life. It enables you to identify the factors that can undermine your well-being, and to make changes for the better. This book guides you gently towards an improved sense of well-being. Each important area of your life-physical, emotional, and spiritual.
