The Dragon Dance is a blend of Indian & Daoist Yoga, designed to stimulate & remove blockages to the flow of energy (prana or chi) through directed awareness, the breath & vigorous movements. It is great for people who want a vigorous workout & who want to experience this mystical thing called "energy." It is a whole body workout, & will even challenge your ego. Flexibility is not just a physical quality; we also need flexible minds. Learning the Dragon Dance, will challenge you mentally & will hopefully build neural plasticity in the brain. At some point you may experience the dragon's fire: you will have reached this stage when you begin to sweat. After that, the dance will enter the Yin phase, holding each position for a few breaths, to strengthen & open the joints. The final relaxation will allow the body to marinate in the juicy energies that you stimulated, which will enhance the healing & strengthening process within you.
