When you wake up in the morning, how do you feel? 

Do you feel refreshed and energized, ready to start your day? Or do you feel drained and want to keep hitting the snooze button? 

And, at the end of the day – do you feel balanced and relaxed or depleted and overwhelmed?

Everything that we do in our daily lives affects our body’s energy balance. Think of it as a bank account. Some things act as deposits toward our body’s energy budget, and some act as withdrawals. 

Everything you do or experience during your day is either a deposit toward the body budget or a withdrawal. 

Your body is very sensitive about the budget going both too low and too high, and a negative energy balance affects us in numerous ways.  Here is a quick summary of how a chronically unbalanced body budget affects your life daily:

Your body’s internal state directly affects how you feel daily. A negative energy balance stresses your physiological systems and makes you more vulnerable to disease.

But not only that. Your body balance directly affects how you function, feel, and think. It affects your perception of the world around you and how you interpret things that happen in your life.

When your body budget is balanced, the world seems sunnier, food tastes better, people are friendlier, body aches are not bothersome, and things are generally looking up. 

Conversely, when your body budget is out of balance, the world seems to conspire against you, nothing goes smoothly, people appear mean, and it feels as if nobody cares about you. 

In other words, our moment-to-moment physiological state impacts every aspect of our life. Your perception of the external world depends entirely on the state of your inner physiological balance. 

Fortunately, the yoga tradition contains numerous comprehensive strategies for managing your body budget and facilitating deposits and withdrawals from the system (as necessary). 

In this online course, senior yoga therapist Olga Kabel will introduce you to the essential yogic model for managing the balance of your body budget. Learn how simple and subtle changes you implement for your yoga classes and private sessions can shift the energetic tone of your yoga practice and restore greater balance to your nervous system.

Olga will show how yoga can help you move toward a more pleasant state and closer to balance between the hyper-aroused and hypo-aroused states. Learn how different types of yoga practices can stimulate your energy and how some can be used for unwinding. 

Also, learn why breath is the most effective tool to regulate your inner budget and simple breathing techniques that you can use to stimulate your system or purge excess jittery energy. 

What You Will Learn

  • What kind of asana, breathing, and sound practices are appropriate for the hypo-aroused states when your system is weak and depleted
  • What kind of asana, breathing, and sound practices are appropriate for the hyper-aroused states when there is too much agitation in the system
  • How we can maximize the effect of these practices to improve sleep, reduce stress, and manage energy
  • How we can use these practices to affect our nervous system and other physiological systems in the body
  • How we can adapt these practices to different situations, conditions, and purposes

This Course Also Includes:

  • Yoga Practice Videos: Enjoy two practice videos that accompany this course designed by Olga Kabel. One practice will illustrate how you can stimulate your system, and another, how you can unwind.
  • Yoga Practice Sequences: Do you want to experiment with these practices on your own? No problem! You will get two handouts with stick figure images and pose instructions to use in your own practice.
  • Recordings of All Sessions: It’s generally acknowledged that many people only retain 10-20 percent of what they learn in a workshop. You will get access to the recordings of all webinar sessions – both MP3 (downloadable) and MP4 (streaming online), enabling you to go back and listen to the workshop as many times as you like.
  • Transcripts of All Sessions: Ever wanted to refer to a particular part of a course? Even the best note-takers miss a point every so often. With the webinar session transcripts, you can refer to particularly important passages or clarify sections you doubted.

I wanted to expand on my thank you. Yoga U Online has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I moved from a yoga mecca to a yoga desert. Instead of having my choice of teachers and styles and special workshops, I now have to travel an hour to take a class. The excellent teachers and interesting topics at Yoga U Online have kept me moving ahead in my practice. I am grateful for all the wonderful yoga you bring to me. Thank you.
