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 Jade Body Qi Gong form.
This form is specifically related to bringing the heartmind to tranquility and harmony. In Chinese Medicine and cosmology, the heart and the mind are one, inseparable.
One of the main functions of this form is to develop wisdom and to bring out full human potential. This is done by awakening the five spirits or energetic qualities of being human. These qualities are: desire/knowledge, animal spirit, intention, imagination and will.
This form explores many spiral movements of the extremities and spine to help reconnect and harmonize relationships between all the spirits to bring about true health.
This form helps to replace the train of many thoughts or ‘monkey mind’ with one intent which guides us to natural harmony and rhythm with life. This is true self-healing power!
This form can be practiced by anyone. No experience is necessary
Learn how to embody the natural strength of your human system!
No prior Qi Gong experience necessary. Optional study book $15.
