This little book provides basic 7-minute yoga exercises for each day of the week. The exercises are organized by the mythological and planetary significances of each particular day. For example, Monday is the day of the moon and its focus is on cleansing, introspection, and planning. The gentle daily exercises, each including a mantra and a meditation, focus on various parts of the body - from the heart and shoulders to the pelvis and the digestive tract. By the end of the week, the practitioner will have experienced full-body yoga, and every part of the body will feel energized and strong.
This is more than a book for the body; Hirschi has constructed a simple step-by-step program that aims to heal and energize the soul and spirit.
