Online Qigong Class #131
Spring is associated with the Wood Element. The Wood Element qualities are strength, resilience and flexibility. The bodily tissues that are associated with Wood Element are the connective tissues (fascia and tendons). We know that for optimal health, these connective tissues need to be strong and elastic.
Doing exercises that strengthen and maintain elasticity of the tissues becomes a priority during Spring.
Yi Jin Jing or Muscle Tendon Change Classic is a set of exercises that are specifically designed to improve the quality of muscles and tissues. All the exercises aim to stretch and strengthen the connective tissues.
