This pose is very special because of the activity of going up and down and out. When there is continuous movement it heightens a flow of energy (cardiovascular) which creates internal heat and lengthens muscles. Leap Frog is great for full circulation to pelvis, hips, feet and chest. It will increase oxygen and the metabolism  in the body’s system.

  • Softens stiff shoulders and frozen shoulder
  • Aids flexibility of the rib cage and thoracic spine
  • Frees the breath and opens the chest
  • Heightens a flow of energy for the body
  • Increases circulation to hips, feet, and ankles
  • Stimulates cardiovascular system (aerobic exercise) for heart center
  • Balances the glandular system
  • Stretches toes while creating balance

  4. The choice to use an alternative medicine remedy for cancer requires courage from the outset. When you are initial told you have cancer it can be like stepping into an elevator shaft – your entire life can feel like it’s going into totally free fall. And when you’re told by your oncologist or consulting surgeon and also you have to have surgery your initial impulse may be “Let’s get carried out rapidly so I can get on with life following cancer.” This was accurate of my companion. Although she frequently used alternative medicine the lure from the instant repair that surgery for her breast cancer appeared to provide was enticing.
