Is getting a good and gentle start to the day,
Chi gong is an ancient Chinese “science” – a way to work with your chi and keep it alive/in a healthy flow.
Chi gong can be described more contemporaryly and westernly as a gentle form of exercise “motion meditation”.
A slow exercise that strengthens and relaxes body and mind. Chi Gong is for everyone. The movements are so calm and gentle that everyone can join in and if you have defects, the exercises can be adjusted to suit the individual. It is also formidable for rehabilitation, both physically andmentally.
Chi – energy/vitality
gong – “the dedicated time I spend working with my chi”
There are many different types for chi gong
I teach the following:
Medical Chi gong
This little chigong series called “Medical Chi Gong” is easy to learn and perform.
Tai-Chi 18 chi gong
A slightly longer chigong series with 18 movments.
What you take with you from teaching is an expanded awareness and hopefully the desire to practice chi gong, even after completing course
Chi gong focuses on: Breathing, movement, visualization, energy.
Breathing calms the nervous system and dampens the stress response in the body.
The movement and breathing activate chi and relax the body to create flow of Qi.
The visualization, The individual exercises have names that help to create the visualization, help to create calm, to achieve the meditative part of chi gong.
The energy moves where our focus is. Therefore, we consciously focus on visualization and movement and the purpose of the exercise. It promotes the beneficial effect that the Qigong exercise provides.
