The Dragon Dance is a blend of Indian and Daoist yoga, designed to stimulate and remove blockages to the flow of energy (prana or chi) through directed awareness, the breath and vigorous movements. It is great for people who want a vigorous workout and who want to experience this mystical thing called “energy.” It is a whole body workout, and will even challenge your ego.
Flexibility is not just a physical quality; we also need flexible minds. Learning the dance, will challenge you mentally and will hopefully build neural plasticity in the brain. At some point you may experience the dragon’s fire: you will know you 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 and open the joints. The final relaxation will allow the body to marinate in the juicy energies that you stimulated, which will enhance the healing and strengthening process within you.
