BRAIN WAVE VIBRATION - REDESCOVER YOUR NATURAL RHYTHM
Stong Body. Open Heart.
We have a highly developed neo-cortex, the level of the brain that is responsible for thinking and analyzing information. It is so dominant that it sometimes leads to suppression of other parts of the brain, leading to an accumulation of stress and inability of the body to effectively restore itself back to health and balance. The best way to tone down the activity of the neo-cortex and maximise the efficiency of other parts of the brain is with a repetitive, continuous rhythm. Vibration classes use a repetitive rhythmic vibration to re-balance the activities of the 3 main layers of your brain. This will tone down the activity of the neo- cortex, activate the limbnic system, and allow you to connect with the life energy that resides in your brainstem.
According to Asian traditional medical models, we all have meridians that run through the body and carry life energy, known as Ki. According to this model, any pain or disease that occurs in the body is the result of blockage to that energy flow. Vibration classes allow you to shake loose the blockages in your body for better energy flow.
Through vibration you can learn to manage your energy, in much the same way as you manage your time or finances. If you feel stressed out or burned out, you may think it is because you have too much to do. That may indeed be the case, but for most people, burnout comes from the inability to manage their energy, not from having too much to do.
To manage the energy flow well it is important to realise your own personal natural rhythm. 'When you return to this basic rhythm of life, you return to what I call Yull-yo, the never-ending rhythm that pervades all of life and entire universe.'
