Ancient Secrets of Energy and Health.

Silat is a widespread sport in Indonesia. It applies to a whole field of studying much as the term "bodywork" refers to so many different approaches.

movements to see inside yourself Spinal Awareness has been highly influenced and inspired by collaborations with The White Crane Silat School of Bogor, Indonesia especially its chapters in Bali. PGB Bangau Putih as it is known in Indonesia is a school founded by the legendary Suhu Subur Rahardja. It is based on an Indonesian adaptation of ancient Tibetan, Taoist, Chinese, and Balinese movement and energetic science as well as other Indonesian Silat practices.

Silat movements strengthen the physical body. They also stimulate and improve the energetic aspects of personal health.

It can be used as a movement equivalent to Taoist and Chinese medicine. It has been the design of one of the branches in Bali to focus more on the health aspects of this unusual system of movement rather than the martial.

White Crane Silat is a very extensive system. If we consider Tai Chi to be a long form, Silat has a numerous long forms. These forms vary from soft forms such as Tai Chi to hard forms such as Kung Fu.

The Silat movements are very beautiful and often take on the inspiration of nature. There are movements of the crane, monkey, snake, dragon, tiger, buffalo, butterfly, bamboo, wind, and so on. In addition, there is a whole series of movements known as Women's Movements. These movements were created by women for women.

Silat is a very individual training. We all need different things to improve. Silat is taught to deal with the particular student, to bring out and strengthen different aspects and energies of each of us.
