Throwing Out The Trash – a Chi-cleansing exercise
The first pose of the 8 Trigrams is Throwing Away the Trash. This is a warm up that releases toxins and excess emotions. It opens the fascia around most of the major organs, invigorates the body, and expels stale energy, while clearing the mind. Especially the lungs and heart expel toxins and help us relax.
Reach up, stretch with arms slowly inhaling. Exhale, contracting down swiftly and throwing arms behind you. Releasing excess stale breath and emotions (excess stuck energy) that need letting go. Repeat
It is combined with the 6 healing sounds during the exhale.
