Description

Qigong is an ancient Chinese health and healing practice based on coordinating body movement and breath to improve blood flow, organ function, joint and bone health. Qigong has a profound depth that is often lost in translation and turned into something mystical rather than as a practical toolbox to aid us in reconnecting with our ability to become still. Qigong allows the individual to become aware of the body and breath moving together, an uncommon practice in our modern, fast-paced society. Once learned you can practice anywhere.


A primary benefit of Qigong is the immediate impact on the entire body and nervous system through its ability to move both blood and lymphatic fluid simultaneously. Qigong practices move the blood and lymphatic fluids differently depending on whether you are doing a moving set such as the 8 Pieces of Brocade (Baduanjin), or doing a non moving set such as Standing Stake (Zhan Zhuang) or martial art like Taijiquan or Baguazhang.


Qigong uses neuro-differentiation by engaging the nervous system in much the same way that we learn other motor patterns, the way babies learn to crawl and walk. The conditioned reactions of fight or flight give way to a third option of calm observation and stress becomes non-existent with regular practice. With Qigong a person can rewire themselves, body, heart and mind and learn to be present as a physical experience and not a limited series of mental exercises.


This course will cover the basics of movement and structural mechanics within the 8 Pieces of Brocade (Baduanjin), Standing Stake (Zhan Zhuang) and Eight Trigram Palm Boxing (Baguazhang) so that you can begin to develop the Six Harmonies and the Three Treasures, which form the foundation of all aspects of the movement arts.


Six Harmonies

External: Feet and Hands - Elbows and Knees - Hips and shoulders

Internal: Qi – Jing – Shen


The Three Treasures.

Qi 氣 vital energy, blood – feeling the blood move and the body open and close to be physically present

Jing 精 essence refined – refinement of tissue and structural alignment to feel the Qi

The Baduanjin is famous for strengthening the kidneys which in turn strengthens a person’s Jing. Jing is stored in the kidneys - kidney health is essential for a healthy body and long life.


Shen 神 spirit; soul, mind – refined intention, being present and aware of all things in your body as you open and close the joints and align the body and move so you can refine deeper awareness

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone wanting to learn deepers aspects of body movement and physical awareness disciplines.
