The Swimming Dragon is an Ancient Chinese exercise form designed for
weight reduction and normalization without the need for dieting. The
exercise, which is very soft, non-demanding and low impact, is like a
meditation in motion. The Swimming Dragon is generally practiced by
repeating a short cycle of movements in a session lasting from five to
twenty minutes. It is easy to learn and perform and brings pleasant
results as soon as one begins to practice it. During the Swimming Dragon
exercise, the body smoothly and evenly rises and lowers and at the same
time swings to the left and right. In Chinese mythology the images of
Dragons are frequently used to represent the action of internal bodily
energy. In this exercise, therefore, the risings of the body are said to
be like a “flying dragon ascending to the clouds,” and the descending
movements are said to be like “a coiling dragon entering the sea.” The
movements are simple and beautiful, and the swinging movements stretch out
the body. The Swimming Dragon exercise requires that the entire body,
especially the waist and abdomen perform large scale swinging movements.
These movements open capillaries in the muscles that are normally closed.
This opening, in turn, increases blood flow, together with an increased
hormonal activity, causes the fat of the waist, abdomen, shoulders, neck,
back, buttocks and thighs to be transformed and reduced.
