About the Event
Qi Gong is a health maintenance system developed by the Chinese thousands of years ago. Anyone can do it because no strain is placed on the body. The active and meditative aspects of this form do much to create peace within. Participants will learn the standing meditation posture (can also be done seated), qi circulation patterns in the body, natural breathing, gentle movements to prepare the body for energy work, and the 20 Yin-Yang moves of Medical QiGong. The WHY: This standing meditation with slow, gentle movements helps prevent disease and improve health by clearing blocked qi (life energy) and opening energetic pathways in the body. The simple movements release tension held in the body eliminating the ill effects of stress, reducing pain, strengthening the immune system, increasing flexibility and bringing the body into balance.
