Qigong (pronounced "Chee Gong") is a gentle exercise that can be practiced by anyone. As a foundational component of Traditional East Asian medicine for prevention of diseases and maintenance of good health, regular practice (even 20 minutes a day), can have lasting effects for physical, as well as emotional and spiritual well being.
Using a combination of flowing movements, breathing exercises, visualization, meditation and sound, Qi Gong exercises can help clear blockages to allow free flow of vital energy or Qi. When our Qi is flowing freely we will have good health. When our mind/spirit is peaceful, we can connect with the cosmic flow of the universe.
SUNRISE QI GONG
Thursday mornings 7:15am-8:15am
Let's gather Tuesday mornings to practice a self healing Qigong form called "Hui Gong", or Wisdom Qigong for the Kidney. In Traditional East Asian medicine, the Kidney energy or Qi (pronounced "Chee") is the root of life force and the foundation for all energy of the body.
We will transition through a series of stretching and slow, isometric/resisted movements to warm tendons and joints, while creating physical stamina and muscular strength. Regular practice will activate the Kidney energy and Wei Qi (immunity) to improve overall health. Coordinated movements and breath will focus and calm the mind, while keeping the body strong and resilient. We will finish each class with a short sitting or standing meditation.
No experience necessary; just show up and follow along!
