Yoga 7 Minutes a Day, 7 Days a Week
A Gentle Daily Practice for Strength, Clarity
by Gertrud Hirschi
As a long-time kundalini yoga instructor, I really enjoyed this book. It describes a gentle, wonderful path to a daily yoga practice, something everyone can benefit from.
One of the things I found most enjoyable is the fact that Ms. Hirschi used certain exercises/postures for each day of the week, using the qualities and the energies of each specific day.
Keeping in mind that different practices/traditions have alternate names for each day, the author uses the following:
Sunday is the Day of the Sun
Monday is the Day of the Moon
Tuesday is the Day of Mars
Wednesday is the Day of Jupiter
Friday is the Day of Venus
Saturday is the day of Saturn
Each chapter describes the particular day, what it’s energies are, what it represents, followed by a kriya (exercise set) and meditation, including a daily mantra, or affirmation. While each day has it’s own unique set of exercises separate from the others, they build upon each other for a complete sense of balance within the week.
Ms. Hirschi ends with a chapter on taking this step-by-step approach to your every day life, focusing on planning our days in a very mindful manner, for organization, focus, creativity, analysis, generosity, celebration and spirituality.
All in all, it is a very easy guide to a better you, using yoga as your pathway to more energy, clarity and peace.
