Mind Your Body Episode 44 with Serena Scott Thomas.
Walking. We have to do it and millions of us also do it for health and recreation.
No wonder walking is such a popular daily exercise—it’s got a lot to like, especially when we take it to a new level with ChiWalking from Danny and Katherine Dreyer.
This is not just walking. In this week’s Mind Your Body TV video, Certified instructor Serena Scott Thomas shows us how to combine walking with elements of the ancient and graceful exercise, T’ai Chi, to increase your physical, mental, and spiritual fitness.
The Dreyers and their fans promise that the five mindful steps of the ChiWalking program will get anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, into great shape from head to toe, inside and out. It’s worth a try if you’re looking for something new and different to do outside in nature.
You’ll use these five steps, as certified instructor Serena Scott Thomas demonstrates in our video:
- Get aligned: Develop great posture and better balance.
- Engage your core: Make back and knee pain disappear.
- Create balance: Walk faster, farther, and with less effort.
- Choose your style: There are over a dozen great ChiWalks like the Cardio Walk, the Energizing Walk, or the Walking Meditation, to keep your exercise program fresh.
- Move forward: Make walking any distance a mindful, enjoyable experience, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned walker.
