Let the Revolution Begin Now!
A cinquanta anni il signor Ernesto scopre di essere un intollerante, “lui che della tolleranza aveva fatto bandiera”, intollerante a glutine, lievito, farina di frumento, intollerante a medici, commercialisti, presentatori di talk show, intollerante a chi compra un gratta e vinci con la carta di credito, alla pubblicità che interrompe l’emozione di un film, a chi ruba sogni, diritti e parole con belle parole, a chi ti ritiene per principio in malafede perché lui per principiò è in malafede”.
Allora si mette in viaggio e impara che “la malattia non è un impedimento, ma una opportunità, per crescere, per evolvere, per guarire”. Ma deve “svuotare la tazzina”, comprendere che “la salute non è un posto lontano da raggiungere, ma un momento presente da vivere.”
“Il viaggio del signor Ernesto” è un trattato di ‘Educazione alla Salute’ e insieme un saggio sulla filosofia del TaiJi sotto forma di romanzo. Perché “per fare veramente educazione sanitaria occorre ‘complicità’, ‘empatia’, stupore, ironia, divertimento”. Da i farmalibri, in e-book, 180 pag (in pdf), scritto da Gabriele Carcano, farmacista educatore, grafica di Eva Incocciati, con il contributo della Farmacia Olistica di Fiuggi, dell’Ass.” Il Cantiere della Salute’ e della Nei Dan School di Bologna-Montese.
The book's adaptable program allows readers in good shape to experience a challenging workout, while people with physical limitations benefit from gentler postures, breathing exercises, and meditation practices. Throughout the book, the author focuses on the needs of older beginning students, providing tips for moving comfortably into a pose, avoiding injury, and using helpful props, such as chairs, foam blocks, and cotton straps.
The author details the basic principles of yoga and teaches the common elements of all postures and movements: alignment, breath, and awareness. However, the vast majority of the book is devoted to teaching the yoga poses through the use of step-by-step photos, clearly written instructions, and helpful hints from the author.
