This series has started but there's still space to join...
This is a eight (8) week Modern Qigong series of practices related to Summer and Late Summer. The Heart, Small Intestine, Triple Burner and Pericardium is the focus, along with the Fire and Earth Elements.
The best way to describe the practice of Qigong is as a gentle and restorative exercise therapy. The purpose of the practice is to release tension; physical, mental and emotional tension, in order to allow the energy of the body to circulate freely and without stagnation or blockage.
Qigong is effectively a moving meditation practice, it's origins are that of ancient China and it's connected with Traditional Chinese Medicine. Qigong activates our body's energy system and the innate self-healing capacity of the body.
Modern Qigong is a powerful, integrative approach to the ancient practice. It brings together movements from the hundreds of traditional forms into a more accessible style that complements our fast paced lifestyles. It allows people to experience the benefits of qigong without the thousands of hours of practice that is often required to master a classical form.
The practice incorporates acupressure, slow stretches, gentle flowing movement and stillness, accompanied by a strong focus on presence. During Qigong we focus and anchor our attention on the breath, the body and the sensation of Qi; the feeling of aliveness within. When practicing our intention is to be embodied and present, to connect with ourselves in a holistic way.
There are numerous principals and dimensions to the practice of this beautiful form of self-care and restoration, the essence being to slow down, soften the heart and to do less.
