Psychocalisthenics is a series of 23 movement/breathing exercises that awaken every muscle group in the body.

They take 17 minutes to perform, giving you extra energy, mental focus, and physical awareness. Each exercise has a precise movement and breathing pattern that promotes a surge of vital energy into all your organs, glands, and tissues, which balance emotions and improves alertness. The exercises combine familiar asanas from Hatha Yoga as well as western Calisthenics, to create a dynamic and enjoyable daily exercise routine.

Benefits include, improved health, mental clarity, emotional balance, increased agility and metabolism, and a powerful way to awaken yourself each morning.

Oscar Ichazo, founding Director of the world-renowned Arica School developed this exercise system 35 years ago for awakening the vital energy of his students in order to enhance the vitality required during formal sessions of meditation.
