Interval training has long been a tried and true method in the fitness world. Alternating periods of rest with work for varying lengths, according to what the client needs, is a great way to bring about health and fitness goals. The latest trend in this sort of training is called High Intensity Interval Training or “HIIT.” It’s the same concept upon which programs like Tabata and CrossFit are built. They can be incredibly effective!
At DoxaFit we’re rolling out a new program for one’s DoxaSoma practice. Called, DoxaSoma: Intensity, the program will cycle through a handful of positions using “intensifiers” for each position such as changing the arm or foot position, adding hand weights or deepening the pose and follow those with moments of Prayer Breathing, Prayer Position and gentle Chara stretches.
The focus for our Intensity program comes from the book of 1 Chronicles,
“Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his dwelling place.” -1 Chron 27
In each of the “intense” cycles we breathe, remember the strength of our Creator and focus on building up and during each of the “rest” cycles we flow into breathing in His goodness and His joy, thankful for God’s presence!
