According to the American Osteopathic Association, there is a long list of benefits to doing yoga. Yogic practice protects you from injuries, improves your athletic performance, improves circulatory and cardiovascular health, increases flexibility, and boosts your energy and vitality. Yoga has also been shown to help practitioners manage stress. But, the typical yoga class may not appeal to everyone. Fortunately, MP USA offers much more than just yoga practice in the Wealth of Health Program in Ogden UT.
What Is the Wealth of Health Program?
MP USA’s flagship program is the Athletic Adventure Program (AAP). This is a high-impact, high-intensity training regimen that is designed for people who are interested in learning all that Merpati Putih has to offer. In 2005, we launched the Wealth of Health Program to bring the benefits of AAP to individuals aged 40 and over. Since then, the classes have grown to include anyone between the ages of 10 and 75 who wants to be able to sense and control the energy flowing through their body, develop meditation skills quickly, improve flexibility, and get in the best shape of their life.
Compared to AAP, Wealth of Health focuses more on breath work and features low-impact exercises. We start classes on a quarterly basis, and they run once a week for two hours. We encourage students to spend about ten minutes per day at home continuing their progress.
We should also note that we offer a program called Vibravision that teaches you to improve your awareness of your environment without the use of sight. To be eligible for this program, you must take part in AAP or Wealth of Health for at least six months.
How Is the Wealth of Health Program Like Yoga?
If you are a regular practitioner of yoga, you will likely find that the Wealth of Health (WOH) classes enhance your yoga practice. This is because our classes build endurance, strength, and deepen meditation. As a matter of fact, individuals will learn 23 concepts that build a meditation practice like no other in their first six months of WOH.
WOH has a ranking system, and students learn new meditations each semester. Class starts with a workout. This is followed by a guided power building practice, and it ends with meditation. Merpati Putih power is similar to yoga asanas. For example, at the beginner level, a standard power set in WOH consists of double sets of 11 positions. In AAP, there are 14 positions as well as an additional meditative concept. As the instructor guides the class through each position, there is specific breath work used in the session.
How Does the Wealth of Health Program Differ from Yoga Practice?
Yogic practices are just one part of what WOH has to offer. In addition to helping with breath work and meditation, WOH classes also have the benefits of engaging in low-impact calisthenics, aerobics, and Tai Chi. Also, with yoga, it is hard to gauge your progress. But with WOH, there are new goals to work toward as part of the ranking system.
