‘It’s not the giant steps that does it, it’s the lots of tiny ones’ Take your first few tiny steps with us, join us at one of our weekly classes or weekend workshops. Traditional Chinese Fitness is focused on improving your health and wellbeing.
‘Mindful exercise is proprioceptive movement with breathing and is a very natural way of training’ Movements are slow and sustained involving lots of concentration and awareness of each movement. The idea is to leave the class feeling great, boosting energy levels while feeling centred and calm. It takes a bit of patience from new students to stick around as this is not your usual type of fitness class where you will burn lots of calories and shredding body fat to pumping music, although you should expect to be active and move around lots, just in a quiet and concentrated way. Exercises improve suppleness, breathing capacity, mobility of joints as-well as improving your mood. The pace is slow and quiet allowing students to concentrate while learning, your mind has to be as active as your body.
“smile and the world smiles with you” to further explain this, life is like a mirror so what you present to the world is reflected straight back at you. So you might be thinking whats this got to do with movement and exercise, well the answer to that is, it has everything to do with movement and exercise. But specifically ‘mindful exercise’ Are you calm? Centred? or in a state of unbalance or somewhere in-between? or possible your not aware at all as you have never really consider any of this, or maybe you have considered this but don’t know how to improve these aspects. ‘To really enjoy life you have to feel good’ and that’s a feeling not a something, so lets start paying attention to how we feel and take action to feel awesome. When we feel good our energy is rubs off on others and the things we do. By engaging your mind and body in regular classes you’ll be buzzing with energy and feeling great, yet calmer and more balanced.
When Mind and Body come together there is balance and harmony inside of us. Calm emotions, feelings of joy and serenity which introduce you wherever you go in life. Have you heard the saying “No need to introduce yourself when you enter a room as your energy already does this for you”
We could discuss much further, however, it’s all about the doing, the action, not the single giant step, but lots tiny ones over time. Make your first tiny step this week by attending one of our classes. Visit our timetable for class details, group bookings are also available by request.
