WHAT IS EDGU?
EDGU (pronounced “Edge-you”) is a unique, uplifting moving meditation, facilitating overall well-being and a balance of body, mind and spirit. Easily tailored to individual needs and fitness levels, it can range from a mild to fairly challenging physical workout. It can even be adapted to be done in a chair!
*Physically, EDGU promotes spinal flexibility through a series of graceful, pivotal upper-body movements. Grounded in an open stance position, this rhythmic process exercises and aligns the spinal column, releases muscular tension, gently mobilizes joints in the upper body, and stimulates circulation. Many (myself included!) have experienced profound healing from back, neck and shoulder injuries via EDGU’s gentle, yet uniquely effective series of movements.
*Mentally/Emotionally, EDGU focuses the mind, balances the left and right hemispheres of the brain, and helps bring you into the peace of the present moment.
*Spiritually, EDGU is designed to open each of the chakras, allowing for an increase in overall energy (or “chi”), as well as a greater sense of clarity, insight, and well-being.
Simply put, EDGU is powerful, amazing stuff! I’ve been teaching EDGU since 1998, and I continue to whole-heartedly sing its praises. In addition to the standard EDGU sequence, I also incorporate gentle stretches, visualization, mindfulness and breathing techniques into the process, deepening the experience of peace, balance and clarity that EDGU facilitates. You will come away from this simple, yet powerful sequence feeling centered and refreshed, with a smile in your heart.
