Zen Stretch Moving Meditation 

 Is a perfect blending of Eastern and Western theories of health & fitness. The workout is composed of a series of 81 full range isometric muscular contractions performed in a specific order. By combining deep diaphragmatic breathing with the intense stretching and contracting of opposing muscle groups, Zen Stretch will increase range of motion around all joints of the body, promote dramatic changes in total body muscular flexibility, as well as stimulating  overall muscle tone and stability. 

    Once you have learned the full series of movements, you can take your fitness to the next level by turning your attention inward to your breath and transform your physical workout into a moving meditation. By focusing inwardly on your breath, the outside stresses of everyday life melt away, giving your mind a chance to rest and recharge. For true health and fitness it is necessary to train your mind as well as your body. A mind that is quiet and still has a greater capacity for inspiration, knowledge, creativity  and happiness.
