Meditative shadow boxing combines flowing, real boxing techniques in slow motion with chi gong movements. Body awareness, mindfulness training, technique training and breathing exercises are components of this form of training.
Each boxing movement requires precise coordination of all 4 limbs and the torso, at the same time, independently of each other. Only what we learn slowly with patience can we later use at high speed in a targeted and precise manner.
the spiritual level
boxong is an educational and relaxing body meditation!
BoXong promotes focused concentration on the movements to be performed. This releases tension in the body and mind and transforms it into kinetic energy, which has a stress-reducing effect. Frustration and error tolerance are further benefits. We want to learn to accept mistakes and understand them as important learning stages. It is of central importance to recognize mistakes as constructive. These learning effects help to achieve improvements in boxing as in all other contexts in life. BoXong is not about performance at any price, but about a contrast to faster, higher, further.
Performance is potential minus disruptive factors. That is why it is of central importance to learn to be aware of these disruptive influences again and again, to greatly reduce them in order to be able to regenerate. Body and mind need peace and quiet to be able to hear questions about their own meaning. This leads to a highly personal introspection in order to feel what is not visible or rationally explainable within. Spiritual intelligence also arises through slowing down and the associated sharpening of the senses, which is conducive to spiritual growth.
Boxong is also about getting back to nature in order to connect with it and put down roots. Movement and being in nature is an essential part of transforming emptiness into abundance. This time is a time of growth and regeneration at the same time. We live in a competitive and overstimulated society, with a lot of noise and distraction from our inner desires and needs. Mother Nature is the ideal retreat for discovering our own desires and needs.
Spiritual intelligence includes both rational and emotional intelligence, which work to enhance our development and our connection to ourselves and others. (Howard Gardener, psychologist)
BoXong is reduction and focusing on the essentials within us to bring us into a fulfilling state. From a “wear-and-tear boxer with a high work rate” with a tendency towards workaholism to a relaxed fighter with fulfilling efficiency. Trance journeys, EFT tapping techniques or progressive muscle relaxation are supportive and easy-to-learn relaxation techniques for self-application in BoXong. Whether indoors or outdoors: BoXong is very suitable for integrating into the working day in order to consciously take active and rewarding breaks for a new freshness, similar to a power nap or meditation. Let your mind wander in peace and quiet.
In addition, we offer 1:1 coaching day workshops, organized as e-bike tours through the enchanting Barnimer Land north-east of Berlin. (Individual request)
