It starts with a very detailed and precise stretching flow that opens all energy channels in the body and prepare it to absorb the best Qi/Energy, as well as to release any toxins.
In this course you will learn
- The proper basic stance or posture, that will follow you the whole practice. It is important to maintain this posture because it aligns the meridians – the channels of energy in our body, and allow the Qi to flow better and smoother. It will also help with opening blocks and remove QI stagnations in the body – hence bring healing in a deep and natural way.
- To let go of your mind. To be more relaxed and focus. To find inner peace and balance.
- To breath better, smoother, deeper. Abdominal breathing is an essential part of Qigong so please pay attention to it and practice it even by itself, as a holistic practice, prior or post Qigong training.
- To be soft and nimble. To let the Qi guide you rather than you trying to guide the QI or force it to move somewhere. It is said in the Tao Te Ching that “the best motion is stillness. The strongest force comes from softness.”
No prior knowledge of Qigong required. This course is for all levels, beginners or advanced.
For advanced students, this course will be a great way to shift into the professional course of
Background of Qigong & this Course
Qigong means the cultivation of life force energy by practicing the right or correct exercise.
Qi meaning energy (life force energy) and gong meaning work, or skill. The name “Qigong” was first used about 300 years ago, while before-hand evidences were found in china (as far as 7000 years ago) that demonstrates pictural postures of similar type as the Qigong we practice today.
Systems that were integrated into Qigong were Dao Yin, the guiding and directing of Qi,
Xing Qi - which refers to circulating Qi, and Nei gong, which can be translated as internal movement, or standing postures.
Even though these days some of Qigong movements became purely external, in our practice here, we put attention to what is happening inside our body, not only outside. We pay attention to the holistic movement of the whole body as one unit, and the coordination of breath and motion.
step by step while learning the movements and practicing them more and more you can get the sensation of Qi. It will be felt between your palms, maybe around your arms, and gradually your whole body will feel a buzzing sensation of Qi, energy. This means that your training is successful and that you generate good Qi that replenishes your cells.
This course is based on Orpheus’ own practice and the skills he gained by learning under many masters. He designed the set of stretching specifically to allow the body to be open to receive and release Qi according to its needs. Orpheus teaches here several movements from Wu-Ji Qigong that he has learnt directly from Master Duan Zhi Liang in China. Master Duan gave Orpheus the authority to teach this family tradition in the west, and since Master Duan left the world, Orpheus is now dedicated to spread this beautiful art.
Orpheus intends to release the full set of 18 movements of Wu-Ji Qigong in the near future.
