I go to the gym regularly but I realised that I don’t really think about my flexibility, the stretching in the movements felt good
Tell me more about MoGaChi
MoGaChi was crafted over two years as Alison carefully combined energy routines, such as Tai Chi, with specific asanas (yoga). Our bodies are a beautiful piece of engineering and we often take them for granted. Without a full range of regular movement, and particularly as we move beyond 40, muscles and tendons will start to tighten, lose flexibility, and eventually cause us physical issues, such as back or shoulder pain or shortened tendons. After 50 our ability to build muscle lessens dramatically, so it’s important to build and maintain our muscle strength.
Starting with a mindful posture scan and finishing with a short reiki relaxation, the class promotes deep breathing and posture mindfulness throughout. The asanas chosen not only open up each of the seven core chakras but aim to flex, tone, lengthen and strengthen your body. The Tia Chi promotes controlled movement and breathing that works with the energy around your body whilst the Qi gong moves promote controlled movement that works with key acupressure points and the meridians (energy) within your body). Together with several other energy moves this routine will increase energy, vitality and stimulate the circulatory and lymphatic system.
Gentle this may be, but over time you will see underused muscles start to strengthen and tone, and your flexibility will improve. Your energy and vitality will increase and you will feel a greater sense of calm and physical wellbeing.
I loved this class. I’ve tried yoga before but I found myself getting bored toward the end, because MoGaChi is split into different sections it kept me interested
What issues might your favorite sport be giving you?
Loss of flexibility is not just about age, it also occurs in people who do specific sports without paying attention to their whole body. Let’s take cycling for example, this is a very popular sport and road biking has continued to boom over the past 10 years. Whilst regular cyclists may be fit, strong (particularly in the leg area), and have good stamina, they are prone to suffering from tight hamstrings and calves. Muscle cramping in the legs is another common issue, as is back and neck pain. Given that many of us have desk jobs or spend long hours on laptops, tablets or smart phones, cycling can aggravate these areas when out on long bike rides. If you’re sat with shoulders and back in a neutral position, this can help to ease the issue but many people are not continually mindful of this whilst riding. Doing regular MoGaChi works to strengthen, lengthen and tone muscles across the body, and reduce or remove common issues experienced.
As an aside, you should also check out your seating position on the bike as this can continue to cause problems if the height and distance of your handlebars/seat is not right for your body size.
Alison is a lovely instructor with a gentle tone and knows her stuff. She makes you feel relaxed and go at your own pace. I really enjoyed our session.
