"Trying to make psychological change is going to be opposed by the mind itself. Anyone who has tried to break a habit or change his ways knows about that. So do people who have tried to raise their level of craftsmanship or artistry, such as musicians trying to reach a higher level of mastery.............

From the yogic point of view, physiological homeostasis [1] represents not only a psychological state,but also a physiological state. That is why fasting,diets,various physical exercises,and emotional and mental exercises are considered necessary, or useful at least, in bringing about personality change and development."

Elmer Green Ph.D and Alyce Green M.A.

[1] “Homeostasisis a process that maintains the stability of the human body's internal environment in response to changes in external conditions.”

Hello Gordon,

Spot On!!!

No other form of exercise requires the level of 'Total Focus' with the ability to block out every possible distraction that true Isometric Contraction does. Without complete, uncompromised focus one cannot achieve the unparalleled benefits of Isometric Contraction. BUT when 'Total Uncompromised Focus' is achieved it not only allows you to achieve levels of life long strength and fitness that are amazing but carries over to every facet of one's life.

“The power of positive thinking undoubtedly works, but so does the power of negative thinking. Like electricity, the power itself is neither positive or negative; it simply exists, and it is up to us human beings to put it to use one way or another.”

Indra Devi [the First Lady of Yoga]
“Yoga For Americans
