In their scientific "think-tank" of Olympic Coaches, Special Operation Trainers, Cosmonaut Program Personnel and Medical Research Scientists, I was honored with the privilege of "mind-sharing" their discoveries.They transformed millennia old health traditions into cutting-edge longevity science for their Space Program to guarantee their Cosmonauts long, healthy lives, even in the ravages of zero gravity (where all life rapidly accelerates the process of dying!Each movement is accompanied by greater psychological clarity and stronger emotional power. I moved it several repetitions and then performed several squats to check my pain level and range of motion. And each movement unlocks a new valve of nutritive flow in your body.Because Russia sits in the middle of the world, you will see movements which look like yoga, some like martial art, some like dance.
To fortify one's health, clear one's mind and elevate one's spirit were one and the same.
And with each more advanced movement he taught me, the pain diminished more until it was completely gone. When the "noise" of pain disappeared from that local area, a sudden WHOOSH OF ENERGY flooded into first the local area, then started to leech into the next adjacent joint and so on. And then he rapped on his illustration to highlight that he had only shown me the basic movement at that point.
By the end of this session, I felt like a Superhero ready to take off! I laughed as he went on to share how the movements progress in a very specific sequence, which relates to the way we develop neurologically, to the way our spine and our brain evolve from infancy.
We exercised 6 hours a day minimum plus 4 more in study, and each session was conducted with the sacredness of a church, mosque or ashram.
What came as an incredible surprise for me was the way that my Russian mentors researched.
He taught a Russia monastic practice very similar to the traditional Yoga and Sufism I have been taught, in its design to energetically align you with Grace through specific postures, deliberate movement and unique breathing exercises.
