Offerings By This Teacher
Qigong is a wonderful mind/body exercise form originating in China over 5,000 years ago. Practiced by millions of people around the world, qigong is considered the ultimate energy workout. By combining gentle stretches, strengthening postures, and flowing movements, qigong opens the body’s energy system in a therapeutic way. The word “qi” ( pronounced chi ) means life force and “gong” means to work skillfully with. Qigong practice teaches one how to work with energy in six different ways; cultivating, circulating, clearing old energy, exchanging, transforming, and storing in the center. Qigong movements mirror the movements of nature, especially the fluidity of water. Combined with breathing techniques, qigong releases stress, boosts the immune system, respiratory and cardiovascular systems, and increases the body’s innate healing potential. It’s a great choice for anyone looking to increase overall wellness and find more energy and joy in life.
