Tomorrow at the Room at Meadowbrook we have a whole day of free Holistic Classes. I start the day sharing Tai Chi health at 9 am. All martial arts come from QiGong, the Chinese Medicine of movement. The Dragon Gate Line of Tai Chi I am in, uses Qigong movements for a morning awakening practice. They stimulate your organs and meridians in a gentle way to get your body going. You feel a smooth, alert energy that gives you peace and aliveness for the day. I use this as my movement rather than some challenging workout.
In the west, we are educated that movement must be hard, long and unpleasant to find health and that simply is not true. In the Eastern traditions, especially for woman, movement gives us connect to our body lovingly and supports health and detox. It doesn't need to strain us. Mostly connect us positively. Feeling good, alert, alive and activated in vitality. Hard workouts are more for men for they thrive on the muscle, competitive and adrenaline based activities. Woman like the flowing, gentle ways for their body is designed that way. Dance being the one activity that all woman should enjoy for health. Free flowing is the best, where the body deva, our innate health system gets to move as it wants to release unwanted emotions through grace and ease. It is sacred, easy for we can do our own level and certainly physical in a way that we enjoy in pleasure.
Self care involves moving our body in ways pleasing. Our lymph system has no pump and removes all the toxins so movement supports that detox. Often overweight people have issue with holding onto fluid which appears as fat when they are just not regulating the fluid in their bodies properly. Hard workouts put us in adrenal stress as woman when we are seeking ways out of that and into parasympathetic. Using movement not workouts fares better with feminine health. You may look healthy but inside, your body will eventually run into issues for our adrenals get burnt out from the masculine movements. It just is.
Using the outside as part of your movement connects you to mother nature which is filled with feminine vibes of beauty, becoming, nourishing and growth. Oxygen is fresh, the sensuality inspires and supports us to ground in our bodies. Negative ions are present to balance all the positive ions of our homes and technology. The spaciousness provides an opening of our minds, clearing the unwanted chatter. Presence is easy for us all there.
Our bodies need to move to detox, release emotions, burn stored up energy and shift about our energy field. It doesn't have to be hard for all these benefits can come from flowing in easy ways that inspire us to appreciate the body deva and give it support to do its work. The easier we move, the more we move, the easier it gets, the more we do it. These are important ways to adjust and shift ourselves. We don't need hard regimens or body building techniques unless that is an art that you enjoy. I like to use my body as efficiently as I can so when I want to play at skiing, hiking, bike riding or kyaking,, I am in good shape to support me. I do not participate in hard workouts. It is against my feminine body and I support me in health understanding this concept of flow for woman.
Do use your movements to support your emotional, mental and physical body in ways gentle and enjoyable. Working out doesn't get you to lose weight as fast as eating healthy amounts and good food. I spent my younger years doing all the extreme workouts and it will not reshape you. Food reshapes you. Movement strengthens your body in so many more ways than power. Power is not necessary for most woman. They just need to move to flow, feel good, release emotions and have health and beauty.
I highly suggest using movement in these ways if you want to feel magical, sexy and beautiful. These are the gifts of femininity that will help woman feel good, vital and magnetize their life into fulfillment.
