Inner Paths: Basic Exercises that are mandatory

Basic exercises

These practices have a general mental health significance. They are especially suitable for settling an emotionally disturbed state of mind, which is extreme mood swings, irritability, periodic depression, and it manifests itself in the symptoms of disintegration of the daily rhythm of life, haste, hurry and lack of focus.

We must emphasize that with the help of the exercises a symptomatic result can be achieved, therefore, the causes that create a troubled state of mind do not disappear.
