Atrial fibrillation is one of the most common cardiac arrhythmias.
The heart beats irregularly. High blood pressure and cardiac insufficiency are among the most common causes of atrial fibrillation.
In a Norwegian study, the effect of different movement intensities on the risk of atrial fibrillation was investigated. The result shows that moderate activity can reduce the risk of atrial fibrillation. Hard endurance training, on the other hand, has a negative effect on the flicker risk in the long run. It is assumed that the cause lies in the metabolism. (Morseth b et al. European Hearth Journal 2016; 37: 2307-2313
During hard endurance training, stress hormones are released into the body which strain the metabolism. This is not the case with moderate training, the body can benefit much better from the movement.
With regular woodstocking training you do something good for yourself and your heart.
Many training systems expect certain repetitions from the trainees or set performance-oriented training goals. With woodstocking®, the focus is on the practitioner’s self-awareness. This is to be strengthened by the slow, consciously executed movements with the Woodstock and at the same time awaken the joy of movement. The health of the body is promoted by the stretching, mobility and strengthening associated with the exercises. The concentration on the inner resources during practice also supports health.
The advantage of woodstocking® is that the exercises are also suitable for you if you are taking tablets, have high blood pressure or need to regenerate after a heart attack. The training is designed in such a way that you practice increased attentiveness during this time and feel it into your body.
You learn to take care of yourself and to perceive the signals of your body. Especially with illness, pain and movement restrictions, you can rebuild confidence in your body.
With woodstocking® there are no special sporting challenges. The Woodstock is a sturdy, ergonomic wooden pole designed specifically for training. It supports your training and enhances your sensory perception.
It is important to train slowly, breathe well and not to tense up. It is not about creating many repetitions in a certain time, but about stretching, flexibility and joy in movement.
The mind remains relaxed while practicing so that no stress hormones are produced. That is why a lot of value is placed on a positive emotional state. You listen to a specially composed music with spoken sentences that remind you of your human qualities.
An effective way to combine exercise and stress control. Finding inner peace and getting moving in 6.5 minutes – that’s help for the heart.
