At it’s most simple level Qi Gong is a basic practice of following and staying present for the continuously unfolding and changing senses of life force energy as these changes move through you. We will be starting at the beginning in this Qi Gong class: Beginner’s mind.
Appropriate for those who have practiced Qi Gong, are practicing, and those who never have and/or want to begin. Beginner’s mind is always profound.
Qi Gong is an ancient system of self-healing consisting of gentle movement exercises that combine breath, slow movement, self-massage, and meditation to harmonize the body, mind and spirit. A dedicated practice can provide countless benefits including increasing calmness, reducing blood pressure, anxiety, musculoskeletal pain, regulating the neruoimmunological system and enhancing resilience,strength, balance and vitality.
You can drop in or attend regularly. We will start each class with some foundational basics and then slowly over this series learn the Five Animal Frolic Qi Gong form.
This standing Qi Gong form is a very ancient and developed Qi Gong form that has many different versions. It is fun, energetic and is intended to create harmony and balance between the primary energetic channels running through us. Each of those channels links to a season, an element and an animal.
Each of the five animals: the tiger, the deer, the bear, the monkey and the crane has a more stationary posture and then a more energetic movement in this form.
This particular Qi Gong can also enable you to re-establish your emotional equilibrium and maintain a sense of well-being. No prior Qi Gong experience necessary. Optional study book $15.
Embody the grace, beauty and strength of balanced yin and yang!
