Well- I really found a connection without even meaning too.- I would be in class- really focusing- and I would notice that my vision actualy changed- It hard to describe- but I found that if I bring forward that "re-focus" I can reach mushin- faster- there is something about the motion with excersize-
like doing round house punching- durring class with secondary excersizes- if you sink into your sanchin stance and let the energy from the "chakra" points flow- it brings a much more complete feeling- for me anyway- to the workout-
I don't "teach" per se the chakra points- but for my own work out- when I started paying attention to my own- it made a big diffrence-- many of my little habits fell away-
Things like that- and the breathing- that is most most important. That was key to really hitting a further level for myself.
Takes practice that's for sure-
I love it though- it keeps me healthy on the inside as well as on the outside.
Thanks for such a good question!
