This a fantastic way of barefoot walking. First you can do it with bamboo sticks, later without them and a bag on your head. It gives you a great posture and makes feel you very connected to the earth.
You rotate more around your spine with your hips, awakening the kundalini energy. That makes you feel very warm. You'll feel connected, tall & straight, it feels delicious!
Your arms carry part of your bodyweight through the sticks (or the rotating movement in advanced tropical walking), therefor also training your arms, and reducing the bodyweight pressure on your hips so that you can rotate better.
Dogs and children are also welcome!
