Qigong For A Better Life

Qigong improves your body’s physical form, creating a body that is strong and supple as well as improves your balance, stamina and flexibility. You do not have to choose qigong over a regular workout, but you may certainly want to add it to your workout.

Qigong helps improve your cardiovascular, respiratory, immune, digestive and nervous systems. Practicing qigong regularly will open and awaken your mind, and encourages intuition and creativity.

Not having as many creative ideas as you used to?

Focus on qigong and watch the results surprise you and those you work with. Practicing qigong regularly will keep you relaxed, happy and with a positive state of mind. This is because this form of alternative medicine gives a smooth and balanced flow of qi and keeps emotions like anger, fear, anxiety and grief at bay.

Practicing qigong, aids your body releasing toxins resulting in clear smooth skin as a result. It also helps your digestive processes, which in turn helps in getting healthier skin, hair and nails. It also improves internal circulation so that your body will generate more internal warmth when it is cold.

With all these benefits of qigong and the pleasure of doing it, qigong quickly becomes a regular routine in your life. Without realizing it, your body becomes disciplined enough to add it to your daily regimen, much like starting your day with a healthy meal.

With all the benefits that qigong offers, why not join us today?

Patti then shares a reading or a specific teaching followed by the the opportunity for each participant (if desired) to share a feeling or observation and to be held by the unconditional presence of the group. Class will then proceed with an opportunity to get into the body using slow gentle movements, breathing techniques, and focused visualizations designed to release blockages and balance the overall flow of energy throughout the body. In addition to guided movements, you will have the opportunity to listen to your body and move or stretch as desired. A brief guided closing meditation will leave you feeling both grounded and rejuvenated. Participants receive a weekly email/blog that captures the highlights of the teachings of each class.
