Tonight I completed 40 minutes of Qi Gong with my new dvd from Matthew Cohen called Qi Gong Fire and Water. A couple of days ago I completed the “Water” Qi Gong which helps to relieve stress, detox, and calm.
Though I could always use some calming and distressing, I opted for “Fire” tonight.
Fire heats and strengthens the body, activates and expands the senses, relieves depression, stimulates the immune system, and detoxifies the body. That’s the DVD cover definition of fire. I’d like to add that my legs were on fire. You wouldn’t think standing or stooping one position for the length of the exercise would fatigue your muscles. My legs were shaking!
I definitely loved “Fire” and can’t wait to do this one again.
Admittedly I wasn’t interested in working out when I got, but I’m committed so I did regardless of how I was feeling. I’m glad I did, because I really felt better during the workout and afterwards.
What low impact exercises do you workout to?
