Join me for a Summer based Integrative Qigong class at Point Ormond in Elwood - weather permitting.
Qigong is more than exercise, it's a healing discipline for the body. It is a unique combination of movement, breath and meditation that improves the functioning of virtually all of the systems of the body and has both preventative and curative effects. Traditional qigong is an Eastern self healing practice, originating from China and dating back over 4,000 years. Qigong enables the cultivation of energy, vitality and relaxation and it delivers a wide range of physical and mental health benefits.
Integrative Qigong is a little different to its traditional counterpart but just as powerful in terms of delivering the benefits of Mindfulness, Meditation and Movement, the integrative approach is more accessible for our modern lifestyles allowing people to experience the benefits without the thousands of hours of practice. Our focus is body awareness, mindfulness and relaxation rather than the cultural and traditional aspects, and level of mastery required for the traditional styles of practice.
Effectively it is a moving meditation that explores acupressure, slow stretches, gentle flowing movements and mindfulness, the style is modern and integrative and it brings together traditional qigong, tai chi and daoyin yoga.
During practice we focus and anchor our attention on the breath and the body, and we use the meditative techniques of intention and visualisation to support the mind.
