Details

Qigong is pronounced (chee-gung) and is the study and practice of executing movement with the vital life-force through varied techniques such as Breathing techniques; Postures; Meditations and Guided imagery. Qi means "breath" or "air" and is considered the "life-force energy." Qigong practitioners believe that this vital-life-force accesses and infuses everything in the universe. It correlates to the Sanskrit "prana," or the Western medical conception of "bioelectricity." Gong means "work" or "effort" and is the focus an individual puts into the practice which skills require time, patience, and repetition to perfect. Through practice, we aim to boost the ability to manipulate Qi in order to improve self-healing, prevent disease, and increase longevity. It is a gentle, beautiful and flowing Qigong exercise routine that is both deeply relaxing and a profound joy to experience. The gentle rocking motions and stretching movements improve circulation and digestion. The chest exercises and controlled breathing are good for lung conditions and asthma. And the overall effect of the exercise is to reduce mental stress and physical tension carried in the muscles of the body. This Qigong is very effective and easy to learn. These gentle movements paired with the rhythmic breathing are suitable for people of all ages as it does not put too much stress on muscles and joints and can be practiced sitting or standing. It is practiced around the world by over 10 million people. Any questions or for more information please contact me at [masked]
