Monica Linford’s Chi Ball Method is now taught in hundreds of gyms in the UK and Australia, with her own merchandise and 4 videos supporting the programme.
Monica Linford realised that soft-impact exercise along the lines of yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi and Feldenkrais is the way forward for total fitness. She uses small flexible balls as part of the routine. The aim is not only to use exercise to promote postural fitness but also to move ‘chi’ (or vital energy) around the body. Her system is based on the Chinese idea of yin and yang and she advocates a different sort of exercise for different needs at different times of year.
Her method comprises of 5 elements:
• Tai Chi and Chi Kung (the Chinese model which uses repetitive flowing movements to improve circulation, concentration and co-ordination)
• Yoga (for strength, stamina and flexibility)
• Pilates (to build awareness and stabilise your torso)
• Feldenkreis Method (to return to basics and rediscover the flexibility and movement of childhood)
• Meditation and deep relaxation
