You cannot practice Sotai Yoga without 100% body awareness. By bringing more consciousness to the body, not only you will practice any technique more successfully. You are strengthening your immune system. Every cell in your body rejoices with the attention you give it and does its best to please you, by doing its job better. Many people who do yoga think that they advance or "go deeper" if they perform more difficult and extreme exercises. Advancement happens when your feeling awareness permeates your body and when you realize more and more detail in the context of the whole. Sotai Yoga can train you to do this and it is both an important part of the healing process, as well as a way to develop your consciousness and spirituality.
