Almost anyone who has studied with Pichest has heard him exclaim “Too Much Thinking!” at one stage or another.
He might laugh when he says it, but it is not meant as a joke. It is meant as a warning.
Thinking is a function of the third chakra and you use a particular third chakra energy in the process of thinking, or in the process of using your rational mind.
This energy is called air energy (unlike second chakra energy which is water energy, or fourth chakra energy which is fire energy).
Air, by nature, dries things out and when there is too much of it in your body, it dries your body out too much.
This results in a hard, tight, inflexible body.
In particular, too much thinking affects the solar plexus, mid-back, outsides of the rib-cage, upper digestive tract, stomach, gallbladder, the shoulders (trapezius), sides of the neck, the lower jaw, the psoas, the glutes (or the ‘boomerang’ as Asokananda used to call it) and the fronts and outsides of the thighs.
That represents a substantial part of your body.
Thai Yoga Massage is known to be very beneficial in reversing hardness in the body and bring calmness to the mind. It balances the energies, promotes flexibility, and aids the receiver to return to a state of well-being!
