GET THE FLOW GOING
The exercises should be performed slowly with the movements coinciding with the phases of breathing out.
The focus should be on letting go and not on the stretching itself. The most important aspect of the Makko Ho exercises is not so much the physical aspect, but the flow of energy.Read More
In his book “Meridian stretching exercises”, Shizuto Masunaga describes the breathing technique used with the picture of a balloon that expands to all sides and then flags again – I have found this image very helpful.
He also included detailed instructions for the individual exercises, shows alternative positions and much more.
Therefore, I do not want to include a summary of his text here, but rather offer additional texts in which I focus on the energetic aspects of the exercises and share my personal experiences practicing them.
All exercises can be performed on a yoga mat, a futon mattress or a thick carpet.
Ambition and manipulation of the breathing lead to tension, reduce the energy flow and increase the risk of getting hurt.
Deep breaths should be taken when the body indicates its natural desire to do so.
Anyone who does not have previous experience practicing yoga or similar exercises should perform these exercises with an experienced trainer before doing so on their own.
The flexibility of the body will automatically adjust to the balancing of the energy flow.
In the beginning, place your legs apart at shoulder length and initiate contact with the ground through the soles of your feet by moving forward and backward slowly.
Come to a stop in a position where both feet support your body weight equally.
Then raise your arms, closing your physical eyes and opening your inner ones.Read More
You are now anchored between the Sky and the Earth and can begin the first exercise.
I recommend staying focused on yourself throughout these exercises and regarding the position changes as part of the exercises.
Focus your attention into your open palms to establish a connection to the cosmos, just as you have previously established a connection to the ground through your feet.
And what can I do for you?
