My name is Prasad Nutalapati.I am 38 years old and working here in Chicago. I have a chemical imbalance problem resulting in the condition of "Depression". I have been using a low dose of Paxil 10 mg ever since I came to USA like 3-4 years. Due to my interest in Yoga, I have been reading BKS.Iyengar's "Light on Yoga" and "Light on Pranayama" from the days I was in India, like about 10 years, eventhough my practice of the subject is only a little. Recently, for about 6 months, I have been using "YOGA: Illustrated guide to holistic health" by BKS to practice asanas for the depression problem. I am also practicing pranayama ( Ujjayi with intermittent Bhastrika). The practice for asanas alone is taking about 1hr. 45min. and above. And the practice for pranayam takes about 45 min. It has become very difficult task to dedicate such time in the morning time. With your help and coaching, I am interested in knowing whether I can ...
(1) Shorten the list of asanas with an aim to reduce the time taken, but keeping their effect almost same.
(2) Improve the degree of perfection of the practice of both asanas and pranayama with an aim to control my chemical imbalance problem.
(3) Cure the depression due to chemical imbalance in yoga way.
If you have made any prior efforts in attempting above mentioned tasks, please reply me.
Thank you much,
