The Role of AT in Exercise as Therapy
Research has shown that exercise can help people with cancer, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular and/or COPD problems. Doing Yoga, Tai chi, Resistance Exercises, Flexibility exercises or any other Aerobic Exercises is much easier and more efficient if accompanied by the AT directions.
Our panelists will share their life and work experiences and discuss what worked better or didn’t work. From non exercising due to chronic fatigue, to being able to do almost everything following a particular AT methodology that involved natural breathing and strong self pulls. Putting Yoga, Tai Chi and self developed Qigong methods together with AT has helped to avoid injury and evolve into a greater coordinated movement.
