«Strong Legs, Good Health»
«Many people read, talk, or watch TV while exercising to make the time go by faster. However, to get the most healing benefits from walking, Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches us that the mind should be focused, thus walking becomes a Qi Gong exercise known as walking meditation. Walking meditation is a simple yet profound healing experience; no distractions, just awareness. It’s not about talking or socializing or thinking while you’re walking; your mind is peacefully presente and relaxed.»***
