Qigong - Mindful movement

Qigong is an ancient Chinese practice that combines movement, breath control, and meditation to cultivate and balance the body’s vital energy, known as “qi.” It has been practiced for thousands of years and is believed to promote health, longevity, and overall well-being. Here are some benefits of practicing qigong:

  1. Enhanced Energy Flow: Qigong exercises help remove blockages and stimulate the smooth flow of qi throughout the body. This improved energy circulation can increase vitality, boost stamina, and enhance overall physical performance.

  2. Stress Reduction: Regular qigong practice promotes deep relaxation and helps reduce stress levels. The slow, gentle movements, combined with focused breathing and mental concentration, can calm the mind, release tension, and restore emotional balance.

  3. Improved Physical Health: Qigong exercises can have a positive impact on various aspects of physical health. It can improve cardiovascular health, strengthen the immune system, regulate blood pressure, and enhance digestion. Qigong has also been found to alleviate chronic pain and improve flexibility, balance, and posture.

  4. Mental Clarity and Focus: The meditative aspects of qigong practice can improve mental clarity, concentration, and focus. It can enhance cognitive function, memory, and creativity, as well as promote a sense of inner peace and mental well-being.

  5. Emotional Balance: Qigong helps to harmonize the body and mind, fostering emotional balance and stability. It can reduce anxiety, depression, and other negative emotional states while promoting a sense of calmness, joy, and overall emotional resilience.

  6. Increased Body Awareness: Qigong cultivates a heightened awareness of the body, allowing individuals to develop a deeper connection with their physical and energetic selves. This increased body awareness can lead to better self-care, improved posture, and a greater ability to detect and address health issues at an early stage.

  7. Strengthened Qi Defenses: Regular qigong practice is believed to strengthen the body’s energetic defenses, making it more resistant to illness, disease, and external pathogens. It can enhance the immune system, promote detoxification, and increase overall vitality.

  8. Spiritual Growth: Qigong is not only a physical practice but also a spiritual one. It is often associated with Daoist and Buddhist philosophies and can provide a pathway for spiritual growth and self-realization. By cultivating inner peace, harmony, and a deeper connection with nature and the universe, qigong practitioners can experience a profound sense of spiritual well-being.

Qigong – Mindful movement

Qigong is ”Working with qi – your energy” Qi = Energy – gong = work.

Qigong is an ancient Chinese healing art that uses breathing, gentle movement, sounds, and visualization to cultivate Qi or Universal Life Force. Qigong has been taking place for over a thousand years and belongs to traditional Chinese medicine. Qigong is a part of TCM = Traditional Chinese/Chinese Medicine, which is about balancing and harmonizing body and mind so that all organs and cells function optimally.

Qigong is a complete body training, that strengthens, relaxes, and awakens the joy-full wisdom capacity of mind, heart, and body. Qigong helps to release energy blockages and leads to a natural, healthy balance so that the life of energy can flow from the head down to the feet

When was the first time Qigong was being practiced?

The documented history of what I know as qigong goes back approximately 2,500 years, but Chinese archaeologists and historians have found references to qigong-like techniques from at least 5,000 years ago. Though the historical references say it was kept as a secret and indicate that qigong-like practices were common in royal and aristocratic households from ancient times. You can find lots of very interesting articles and books about the history of Qigong. Many of the famous physicians were also qigong masters.

Qigong was their treatment of choice, and if that practice was not enough to restore balance, the physician prescribed an herbal formula and/or acupuncture.
Under the Cultural Revolution 1966, TCM and Qigong were forbidden. Qigong practitioners were very careful and avoid government scrutiny as anyone involved in the prohibited pursuits would likely be put in jail. It lasted for 10 years. Now we are truly fortunate to have open access to this ancient technology of Qigong as a method to reclaim our health and access our energetic resources.

Who can practice Qigong and why?

Qigong is for everyone!

The movements are so calm and sensitive that everyone can participate. You can practice from standing, seated, or lying positions,
and the movements can be adjusted so it suits your health conditions regardless of your current level of fitness or age. Find out how small movements can make a big impact. ”Less is More”.

There are many different ways to learn and do Qigong. Like any other sport. Qigong for me is about learning to feel your whole body.
Feel the movements, the inner peace, be curious, strengthens, bring balance, harmony, relaxes and awakens the joy-full wisdom capacity
of mind, heart, and body. Qigong is the most fantastic self-healing method.

When can I practice Qigong?

Are there preferred times in the day when it is more beneficial?

Someone says it is good to practice at dawn, others say at night. I have practiced at different times — morning, early afternoons, evenings, late mornings. All of them are equally beneficial. Some people like the benefit of evening/night practice – once the main stress of the day is over.
They sleep better. I think it is important to find a rhythm that is good for you. We are all different.
For me, I like to do morning Qigong around 9.00 am or in the evening around 8.00 pm. Try to practice Qigong every day – just like brushing your teeth also if you only have 5 minutes – but try to do a half-hour to an hour each day to get the benefit. It’s a lifestyle.

Is it preferable to practice Qigong outdoor? Why?

Yes, it is very lovely to practicing outside is a special feeling. It aligns us with nature, feeling the connecting with the Qi, the sounds, the surrounding, the planet, inside, outside, around us. Practicing outside helps us to develop your concentration, power, and balance your inner energy while loving and appreciating nature, it is music for the soul. Practicing outdoors, allows yourself to concentrate, feeling, and awareness to each movement without being affected by noises from the environment, people speaking, laughing or someone watches you.

Find a place somewhere where you feel safe, because we typically close our eyes during the session, so find a nice safe place. Avoid unclean spaces it is negative energy for humans.

Avoid strong winds. A gentle breeze is fine, but if the wind is too strong, it may disturb your energy. This follows the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is easy enough to avoid the strong wind. It’s OK if it is raining, as long are you are protected. When outside wear lots of warm layers so you do not get cold.

Enjoy your practice
