This workout was developed by Shaolin Monks (Chinese Martial Arts Monks from the area of Shaolin) for health purposes.
They include tendon and ligament nourishing exercises which helps with flexibility. They increase blood flow to these areas where blood supply is often limited. By a series of stretching exercises, over a period of time you will feel more mobile and almost lighter in your movement.
The routine was put together by BhangraBlaze founder Kirit Thakore who studied at the highest level of martial arts, under the Shaolin Monks for 15 years.
