More about Qigong
Qigong is a method that has been refined over centuries to improve one’s health and calm the mind. It’s strength lies in an effective set of practice patterns for balancing mind and body. Having mind and body out of balance is what often leads to tension, stress, unhappiness or illness. Regular practice can promote vastly improved health (which can act protectively) and assist in health recovery. The key lies in the deliberate nature of the focused movements, hence the perceived slower pace.
It’s easy to talk about, but it’s better to do!
Full instructions will accompany the videos to provide further detail. We hope this will better your knowledge and understanding of not only the movements, but the nature of Qigong itself.
Get started with ‘The Basic Qigong for Beginners’ series and give yourself a fantastic foundation in Qigong. Note that the warm-up routines are for beginner and experienced practitioner alike.
Over time these online videos will graduate to more advanced routines.
Although Qigong can be practiced by almost anybody, it is always advised that you find a good teacher to help guide you. Failing that, try to understand your limitations. This online series will act as a comprehensive guide but if you are under any doubt as to the limitations of your health or physical capabilities, please seek the advice of your health care provider.
The secret is in the doing.
