Go With the Flow Document

Apr 14, 2011 07:11PM

Twenty-five to thirty minutes of energetic dance followed by the flowing, rhythmic movements of Qi-gong practice will help to burn fat, tone the muscles, improve circulation and safely reduce the pulse.

Qi-gong movements takes a tremendous workload off the heart by turning the diaphragm, chest cavity, abdominal cavity and hip rotation into a ‘second heart’ to support circulation, thereby preventing exhaustion of the heart. The deep diaphragmatic breathing, the rotation of the torso and the extension and withdrawal of the limbs gives a powerful boost to the circulation of blood throughout the body. Achieved by alternately compressing and releasing pressures in the abdominal and chest cavities, this practice triples the oxygen level in the blood stream and balances blood pressure.

Abdominal breathing can be practiced throughout the day serving as a highly effective massage of the abdominal organs. It can improve peristaltic, digestive and elimination functions and acts as a natural preventative against heart disease which helps to prolong the lifespan.

The Vero Beach Qi-gong Society invites you to experience Qi-gong classes at a location near you. Call 772-299-4925 for information, email [email protected] or visit www.thecloudwalker.com.
