What is Qi Gong?
Qi Gong is a powerful system of healing and energy medicine. It is the art and science of using breathing techniques, gentle movement and meditation to cleanse, strengthen, and circulate the life energy (qi). Qi Gong practice leads to better health and vitality and a tranquil state of mind. In the past, Qi Gong was also called nei gong (inner work) and dao yin (guiding energy).
Self-healing Qi Gong
Healing Qi Gong (also translated as “medical qi gong”) is the preventative and self-healing aspect of Chinese medicine. We are all exposed to stress. Qi Gong teaches us how to control our reactions to stress so that life events do not cause such symptoms as high blood pressure, frustration or anxiety. Healthy people practice Qi Gong to become super healthy. Healers use Qi Gong to prevent “healer burn-out” and to maintain a positive presence.
What will be covered in the Qi Gong classes
- Standing meditation and activating the energy gates of the body – this is probably the single most effective technique for beginners.
- Smiling eyes meditation and self-healing – similar to standing meditation but done sitting.
- Micro-cosmic orbit meditation – connects the two central qi channels which feed all the acupuncture meridians
- Lower, middle and upper tan tien activation and balancing
