Prasara is the Sanskrit term meaning “flow without thought.” Our natural state of peak experience (Samadhi) is one of relaxation, fluidity, and spontaneity beyond the influence of the ego and its fear-reactivity. In this book, Scott Sonnon presents his unique approach for realizing the creative expression of the self. If Asana develops structural integrity, and Vinyasa links breathing, then Prasara allows flow to erupt within us. Prasara Yoga: Flow Without Thought includes instruction in various basic movements with progressions to these dynamic “Series A” flows: • Flock of Pigeons: hip opener, knee and ankle strengthener • Diving Dolphin: hams and lumbar release, shoulder and neck opener • Spider Monkey: chest, shoulder, arm, and upper-back strengthener • Forest: leg, glute, and core strengthener • Tumbleweed: hip flexor and psoas synergizer, neck relaxer and strengthener Prasara is a physical practice of releasing fear, anxiety, and trauma a practice that releases one’ss natural state of grace, one’ss natural flow. Unlock your innate flow and find physical, mental, and spiritual expression in motion! Explore and integrate your breath, structure, and movement to release tension, strengthen the body, and cultivate personal mastery with Prasara Yoga: Flow Beyond Thought. Scott Sonnon faced visual, physical, and mental disabilities from an early age on, which led teachers to believe he was unlikely to succeed at anything. But as Scott says, these “defects” were a blessing that allowed him to see, feel, and think about the world in a wonderfully unique way. Despite his disabilities, his trek across the world learning alternative methods of health improvement led him to become an international martial art champion, an award-winning author, and a globally acclaimed public speaker. His love for helping others improve their quality of movement, health, and life was born out of never being able to take for granted what came naturally to everyone else. Due to poor nutrition, conditioning, and aging, now children, seniors, and even athletes suffer pain similar to what Scott encountered and overcame. He designed his programs to prevent accelerating aging of joint and connective tissues, and to give others with similarly challenging genetics access to the physical and psychological mastery that can only be described as “flow.” Now known around the world as ‘The Flow Coach’s, he has become an inspiration to many people by his incredible story of triumph and his passionate dedication to helping others. Scott now leads the fight against the core issues behind childhood obesity and the accelerated aging leading to arthritis. To aid the “walking wounded” like himself, his courses can be found in every VA medical center, as well as health clubs and chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage therapy clinics around the world.
