Progressive Yoga: The Map, Torch and Compass through Stress
Some people create their own storm and get upset when the hurricane destroys their home. Your training choices wreak havoc on your body, so you look for tranquil respites from the storm. You try to rest, and you can’t. You try to sleep, and it’s not helping. You try yoga, and you can’t get into the positions, and probably have gotten hurt from doing it.
Traditional yoga is, by definition, not for you. You are either for it, for the tradition, or you’re not ready and are “diluting” the tradition. For the modern individual, with a high-stress job, finances, activities, and frankly “real” concerns on time, only a Progressive yoga will let you compensate for the challenges of your lifestyle, so that you can respond to the warning signals of postural dysfunction, muscular tightness, and hormonal imbalance before your body adapts to these problems.
The most dangerous communication problem we have with our body is that we don’t listen to it to understand; we only scream commands over the quiet messages it feeds back.
If you listen to your internal messages, you can adjust your yoga for the explicit purpose of functionally adapting to all the stressors in your life, especially exercise stress, and you minimize dysfunctional adaptation. You get more out of when you exercise, work or play, with less undesired outcomes (like tightness, soreness, aches, and restrictions).
Progressive yoga has spread throughout the highest stress occupations, surgeons, operators, pilots, tactical first responders, hostage negotiators, etc… It has proliferated because yoga was never the goal. Progress was. How can you progress from the stress in your life, and become a better, stronger, healthier person from anything you encounter in life? Progressive yoga is your map, your torch, and your compass.
