Qigong comes from the words Qi = energy and Gong = cultivation. In its simplest form, the aim of Qigong is to increase energy and foster improved health. The goal of Qigong is to correct bio-energetic imbalances and blockages.
In the same way that clearing the kink in a garden hose allows water to flow freely, Qigong purges, tonifies and regulates the body’s natural energy to strengthen and regulate the internal organs, nervous system and the immune system to relieve pain, regulate hormones and release deep-seated emotions and stress.
During a typical qigong class, students are lead through various seated meditations and standing exercises intended to increase the general health and well-being of all participants.
Qigong is safe for all students and easily followed, even for first time students. Movement is slow and gentle, focusing on releasing muscle tension, slowing the breath and calming the mind.
