9780874779134: Working Out, Working Within

During physical training, we can experience something deeper than just the burn of working out. We can achieve spiritual awareness and know that we are alive and healthy. Working Out, Working Within offers readers techniques and suggestions to avoid fixating on winning the game, scoring the goal, or building the perfect body. Our personal workouts become tools for personal transcendence as we get to know ourselves, test our limits, gather personal strength, and build physical potency. Learn how to find harmony between body and spirit using:
·breath watching, a simple Tao technique to encourage calming and an awareness of our bodies, and to discover our "Tao minds";
·visual recording, where we imagine our bodies in motion, employing all of the senses in our visualization;
·affirmation reciting, a way to make firm our thoughts by repeating them aloud; and
·valuable techniques to synchronize body and soul. Here's a book that will nourish and exercise the spirit while showing readers what "ultimate" sports and living really are. If we exercise our psyches while we work our bodies, we will achieve not only outer fitness but inner fitness as well.

Review:

Applying such concepts as noninterference, stillness in motion, polarity balancing, transformation, vital force of life (Qi), and windflow grace to sports can not only take your sports performance up a notch, but also improve your quality of life. In Working Out, Working Within a tai chi and Chinese calligraphy master teams up with a sports psychologist to outline a program for inner fitness through sports. They offer stages rather than steps, so in addition to committed practice, the stages entail a gradual process of growth, development, and transformation. Reading Working Out, Working Within is like having an ancient Chinese sage as your fitness coach.
