This term our focus will be on a 1,500-year-old self-healing movement system based on acupuncture called Dragon & Tiger Qigong and also Tai Chi Qigong.
Dragon & Tiger Qigong is especially renowned for simultaneously accomplishing three major changes in the body:
- Releasing stagnant chi that cannot move freely.
- Increasing the speed, strength and evenness of the circulation of chi, blood and other fluids. This balances the body’s energy.
- Quickly raising the energy levels of the body to boost your natural healing capacities.
The movements are easy to learn yet challenging enough to keep Dragon and Tiger Qigong interesting – we will continue to deepen our practice of it as the terms progress.
Tai Chi Qigong is suitable for beginners and those with more experience.
This is a lovely sequence combining gentle movements and is great for those new to qigong, and for those who have more experience it can bring a new routine to their practice. And as the sessions move on the whole sequence can be deepened as it provides a lot of opportunity to bring different aspects of qigong into the learning/practice.
Fundamental to all of this we will continue to work with the basics of good standing qigong posture and the practice of ‘standing still’, or ‘standing like a tree’. This is a powerful practice integrating all elements of posture, relaxation and breathing, and is excellent at building stamina and health.
Throughout our practice we will also incorporate qigong breathing and how we can sink and stabilise our qi in our lower belly, the reservoir of our qi.
