A traditional Chinese daily exercise workout is holistic, observing exercises and techniques for your body, mind and spirit. Why is holistic exercising necessary? While having a strong, toned, flexible body is beneficial and desirable, if you do not have control over your mind and emotions you simply do not have complete, harmonious health – you're only doing one-third of what you should and could be doing for your health! This is something Eastern yogis, daoists, medical practitioners and martial artists have known for at least 2000 years.
A typical daily Chinese exercise workout schedule contains:
- Warm up, loosing & stretching exercises
- Strengthening exercises
- Self-massage techniques
- Breathing & meditation techniques
The benefits of a Chinese style daily exercise workout are numerous:
- A strong, toned, flexible body
- A calm mind
- Balanced emotions
- Enhanced blood circulation
- Good posture & balance
- Sound sleep
- Clear skin & eyes
- Good digestion
- Regular bowel movements
- A greater overall sense of well-being, and more
Will a Chinese style daily exercise workout help me ?
The benefits of Chinese health exercises are available to anyone regardless of race, age, sex and state of health. The exercises and techniques are based on the theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the oldest, continuously practiced medical system in the world. If these exercises and techniques did not work, they simply would not still be in use. If you have not done Chinese style exercise before though, you'll obviously need to try it for yourself. All you need is a desire to improve your health and wellbeing, 15-30 minutes a day and a suitable place to practice – no gyms, classes, equipment or training partners necessary!
To your health!
