Qigong

A moving meditative exercise.

A form of moving fluid meditation. 

For so many it is difficult to quiet the mind especially when we are asked to be still.  The body is not ready for that stillness.   Qigong helps us develop a quite and focused mind but while moving. The exercises create a sense of being very grounded from the hips down and an effortless flowing upper body. The mind stays busy focusing on the movement giving the mind space away from the outside world.

What is Qigong?

Qigong (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that involves meditation, controlled breathing and movement exercises.

The character “Qi” that makes up the first part of qigong is a difficult word to translate.  Qi is a concept from traditional Chinese culture that roughly means vital energy, information, breath or spirit. The second character in qigong, “gong,” means cultivation or mastery. Qigong is therefore sometimes translated as “vital energy cultivation” or “mastery of your energy.”

There are many forms of qigong practiced throughout the world. Some of these forms involve breathing and meditation to promote spirituality and health while others are more vigorous and include martial arts exercises. Tai chi, a widely practiced mind-body exercise, is sometimes referred to as a form of qigong because it “cultivates, moves and helps manage Qi.
