Snake is a full body workout and will strengthen and open your hips, core, arms, legs, thighs, back, neck, shoulders , This Qigong feels like it goes deep into the body and tissues when done correctly.
The snake works on the spleen – an organ that in Chinese Medicine is related to the digestion of food Qi – getting nutrition from food and good digestion. The spleen has a tendency to get too damp, and when the spleen is damp mucus can form, digestion goes off, and we can experience anxiety or worry.
The Snake form opens with the snake slithering up the body, looking back, creeping through the grass, and returning to the center of the body. The ‘creeping through the grass’ movement compresses the organs, squeezing them out like a sponge. The organs are further expanded as the torso returns to the center of the body, and thus absorb fresh energy.
This class will help to improve your overall well-being along with strengthening your whole body.
