An Exercise for Energy recovery and Stamina boosting? Hi, everybody, this is hanmom tv. In oriental medicine, they generally say water goes up and fire goes down.
Or cold head and warm feet. When your head is cold and your lower body is warm, you can thoroughly keep fit and balanced. With that healthy body and condition, the blood and qi(energy) can be circulated very well. So, here’s an exercise and also a meditation posture
for keeping your upper and lower body balanced called ‘a horse-riding posture’. I’ll show you the basic form of the posture. Stand with shoulder width apart. Turn your both feet toward inside. The angle to which both big toes are pointed would be fine with 45 degrees, but when the feet are at least turned inside, it’s okay. And bend your knees enough. The distance of both knees is within two-fist-width. One fist apart is okay. Just make sure that keep the distance at least two fists wide. Not more. Bend your knees until the angle of your back knee becomes 90 degrees. Put your hips back, Straighten your lower back, a little backwards, and stretch your arms to your both sides, with tugging the tips of your fingers inside. Do not lift the shoulder blades, let your shoulder blades drop down enough. When stretching your arms to both sides, you should remember that
draw your little fingers toward you strongly. See the beginning part of the hand, the carpal?
Push the part and, pull the part of your little finger toward your body. Push the carpals, and pull the little fingers. With standing the posture, proper breathing should be accompanied. When you breathe in, push your lower belly to the front. Let your belly to the initial position when breathing out. This is the side position of the posture. As you see the posture, hips are back, and your back’s bent backward a little. Your knees are bent as much as you can, keeping the angle of back knees about 90 degrees. Unlike the lunge, or squat, or something like that, Knees are ahead of big toes, as you see in the video. This is necessary to keep this ‘horse-riding posture’. Spread out your palms, and keep the tips of your fingers strongly tugged insdie. Now, it’s time to follow along the exercise a horse-riding posture
