This is a repost of an essay on body awareness. Bardon practice presumes
and requires that you actually be able to directly perceive the vitality
and health of your body, muscles, organs, and the balance of life force
between upper and lower body, chakras, etc. This simple stretching and
focusing on vitality exercise is one way of doing that. Yoga itself and
Bardon body breathing in itself will not do this for you.
Furthermore, if you combine an awareness of the surplus vitality in your
body with akasha which is in effect Shiva you can combine the Shiva Shakti
kundalini yoga goal in your body with far greater ease. See my Kundalini
for Dummies farther down.
