The most effective type of exercise someone should be doing every day is Figure Eight. It has physical, emotional, mental and spiritual benefits.
Physical: It stimulates digestion and elimination. It strengthens the core and prevents back pain.
Emotional: It stimulates sensuality and increases libido.
Mental: It stimulates the vagus nerve that is responsible for stress relief.
Spiritual: It stimulates the first, second and third chakras (energy centers) and increases security, sexuality, and willpower.
Here is how I do the move:
I imagine horizontal figure eight with its center in my belly. I keep my belly tight and keep moving my hips in a continuous flow.
Just like a figure eight has no beginning and no end, my move is fluid and smooth, almost meditative.
My hips are moving but my shoulders are not. I experiment with raising my arms to the side, in front of me or above my head. I experiment with lowering my head or throwing it back. I keep breathing deep and slow. I experiment with one breath per entire figure eight. I speed it up, then slow it down. I go really fast, then extremely slow. I play with the move going fast on the right side and slowing down on the left side. I do it with my knees bent or straight.
There is a metaphysical explanation for the benefits of this move. Keep your mind open and listen: Our belly is our powerhouse, our energy center.
When I do this move, I activate, refresh and restore this energy center. My internal organs get oxygenated and more oxygen flows to my brain as well. I do this move to my favorite music with my eyes closed, I get lost in time and receive unusual inspiration.
I dance it with a coy smile. I make sensual sounds. I wear different clothes or no clothes at all.
It makes me feel like a powerful wise goddess and the world is ready for me to share my gifts.
