We will spend the month of May teaching all about sleep on this blog – tips, remedies and the Chinese medicine view of sleep. Sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date with our articles.
Here’s how it looks when your exercise is balanced, allowing the body to move and open while preserving your vital energy:
Enjoy exercising, feel happy while you do it and look forward to it
Exercise in the morning
Feel calm, clear and vibrant after exercising (and for the rest of the day)
Not sweating profusely
Able to breathe through your nose most of the time during exercise
Making gradual improvements in stamina, flexibility and strength
Few or no injuries
Our blog articles in March will go deeper into the Chinese medicine view of nurturing life and sustaining vitality. This gives you a great perspective to add to the Western view so that you can find your own balanced way of moving.
If you have injuries, struggle to get motivated to exercise or would like treatment to help recover from training, please contact us for further info or to make a booking.
