WHAT IS QI GONG?
Qi Gong / Chi Kung (pronounced chee-gung) are exercises and healing techniques that were developed centuries ago by Chinese masters. They comprise gentle movements, controlled breathing and meditation practices and are generally done standing or adjusted as “sitting or lying down” practices for people in recovery or with impairments.
Qi is life force energy. Gong means to practice. So Qi Gong is the practice of restoring the body and dissolving energy blockages, bringing unity between body, mind, breath and spirit through strengthening the natural flow of life force energy.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS of practising Qi Gong regularly?
* Increased life force energy (Qi) for overall vitality and wellbeing
* Strengthened immune system and organs
* Improved physical fitness, balance, flexibility and breathing
* Toned and strengthened muscles, releasing knots and tension
* Relaxed and regulated central nervous system, releasing physical & emotional stress and fast-track recovery from adrenaline burn-out
* Increased mental clarity, focus, resilience, calmness, inner peace and wisdom
* Improved management of anxiety, depression, pain and chronic health problems
* Increased longevity
* More integrated body-mind-heart-breath-spirit
* Increased mindful awareness and connection with ourselves and life, being present in the precious Now
