What is so special about Qigong?
Qigong is amazing! It makes you feel so good and has lasting benefits. The more you do, the more benefits you receive. The forms I teach are for health. They are gentle and easy to do. Dancing Crane # 10 of the 18 Luohan Hands Qigong is dynamic meditation and is perfect for those that find it difficult to meditate. We practice qigong from a standing position, move slowly, gently, and with our eyes closed. Practicing this way forces the brain to focus on the movements, which in turn tricks the mind into going into a meditative state. With no distractions from the outside world, the mind naturally focuses on moving, flowing, breathing and effortlessly enters zen (a meditative state). Qigong has the power to improve you physically, balance your emotions, and affect you on a spiritual level. Physically, qigong will challenge your balance, improve your strength and endurance. Qigong helps to clear stagnant energy & emotional blocks, in fact this is one of the most beneficial aspects of the practice. According to Chinese medicine, an emotional block is how disease starts in the body. On a spiritual level, qigong allows you to access spirit and become your true self. Another benefit is experiencing a very relaxed state or zen. There is nothing like entering zen to improve your health. The more you do, the better you get at it and you can take this relaxed state with you everywhere. When the body is relaxed and the chatter stops in the mind, your body can heal. If you want to see some changes in any of these areas, try qigong!
