"It’s not how long we live, but how well we live"
Today most people approaching retirement can expect to live another 20-30 years, but how do you want to live those years? This is the time in our life when it is essential to self-care and takes responsibility on a daily basis to how we spend our time.
Qigong is all about balance, the yin and yang, and how to live with nature’s laws. What I have found so profound about this ancient Chinese practice is it’s beauty in it’s simplicity. Qi means energy and Gong means cultivation. Energy is all around us and without it, life would not survive. We can’t see it but we can certainly feel it. Its about understanding how energy moves through form. Nature is a sophisticated system, and when we sync ourselves with natures rhythms we can live in harmony with life and the world around us.
I look forward in sharing this beautiful practice with you!
Qigong (energy cultivation) is based on ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine, which taps into the rich storehouse of natural wisdom within our bodies. It’s an elixir for aging well.
The goal of Qigong is to repair what we have damaged and restore what we have left, bringing back strength, flexibility, balance, calmness and glow. It’s important to pay attention to our bodies and focus on movements that are healing rather than harmful. It can be good to challenge ourselves, but we need to find a place where our bodies are both feeling alive and also at peace.
Each lesson in learning Qigong is like building your own apothecary table. Rather than pills and potions, we fill it with seasonal and functional movements, effortless flow, dynamic relaxation, breath work and ways to regulate our energetic anatomy. The gentler, softer, movement flow is so much more than just a workout, and will remove stagnation from the tissues, organs, and joints; center and ground your body; and bring peace and calm to your inner being. If you want to affect the physical matter that is your body, and the invisible matter that is your mind and your soul, the most effective practice you can learn is how to work with your energy. Everything is energy, and when we understand this principal it can open us to so many more aspects of our lives.
Nobody can turn back the hands of time, but these ancient teachings and hidden treasures, along with modern medicine, gives a road map we can follow to remain active and inspired.
My teachings are open minded, soulful, practical, and informative.
