In previous blogs, we talked about the importance of movement for your heart, bloodflow, lymphatic system and for building your physical pension Movenment is also important for  your liver energy. In Chinese medicine, the organs of the spring, are the gall bladder and the liver. The main function of the liver energy is to guarantee te free flow of of qi. Qi is your vital energy. Qi is the total of your energy and each and every organ has it's own qi. Energy should move, otherwise it gets inert. As a matter of speaking, it starts smelling like non moving water in a pond. The smell is the smell of stagnation and therefore of illness. The cobra For this month, we have an exercise that is called the cobra. The cobra has detox qualtities and it goes as follows. Lay flat on your belly. Put your hand beside your breast(s). The fingers point forward. Now lift your upperbody up, there will be a little arch in your back. Your elbows point backward and they lightly touch your upper body. Do not stretch your arms/elbows. Now, try to relax the muscles in your legs and bumbum. Keep breathing deeply, nice and slow. Bring you head back wards, so you can feel a stretch in your throat. Drop your jaw and stick your tongue out. Keep this position for as long as it is comfortable. Then close your jaw, bring back your head, bring your bumbum up and towards your heels, stretch your back and get up slowly. You can do this exercise as many times as you like. It will promote the free flow of qi in the breast area, it will energize you, it tones the muscles in your arms and shoulders and last but not least, it will stimulate your digestive organs.
