What is Qigong?
Traditional Chinese Medicine sees the body as a sophisticated system of energy channels that requires balance for optimal health. Qigong is an ancient Chinese wellness practice that builds on this knowledge, using meditation, controlled breathing, and movement to help a person master their inner life force. Qigong exercises increase the supply and flow of this vital energy throughout the body to promote a variety of rejuvenating effects including longevity, healing, and mental-emotional wellness.
Did you know?
As a daily practice, qigong is said to strengthen and harmonise the functioning of the body’s organs and meridians (the body’s energy channels), helping to correct any imbalances that can later lead to dis-ease and pain?
That the rhythmic motion inside the postures can establish synchronicity between the body and mind that cultivates a deeper, more connected, and calmer state of being?
Two of my favourites for daily wellness come the Forest Rock Long Life Qigong Set.
