Mind and Body COnnection

Becoming present. We as humans may need to consciously decide that it’s time for change. How do we get to the point of our lives where we can appreciate the NOW moments that bring gratitude, prosperity and peaceful moments? Combine the feeling of a united community with loving self-discipline and experience the major benefits of mindfulness.  The word “yoga” has come to describe a means of uniting or a method of discipline: to join the body to the mind and together join to the self (soul).

Instructors like Cassi Volkwyn believe activities like Chi Kung and Yoga are a better ways to staying Happy and Healthy during the year 2021.

Chi Kung

is easy to learn and enjoyable to do. With just a few minutes of practise , it can have an invigorating and rejuvenating effect on your overall health. Qigong benefits the general quality of life, reduces hypertension, aids in fall prevention and balance, improves cognitive performance and muscle strength, reduces symptoms associated with osteoarthritis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and reduces pain. In addition, it has psychological benefits such as reductions in anxiety and depression and improved self-confidence. Chi Kung can be practiced anywhere by almost anyone, irrespective of age or physical condition. Incorporating appropriate Chi Kung practice would have synergetic effects on health, including dementia
