Qigong is an enlivening part of my everyday life. Building and experiencing the flow of Qi through my daily practice, and taking that out into the world, allows me to feels connected and tapped in through out everything I do during my day; whether it’s qigong with students, walking in the park, or sitting in traffic.
Some people find qigong because they are looking for stress relief. Some come to qigong because they want more energy in their daily life. There are forms of qigong designed to mobilize your joints, reverse cancer and even to keep you “young and beautiful,” the style of qigong that I teach was designed to allow anyone to feel the flow of qi as quickly and powerfully as possible, so that you can experience its benefits. Everyday I feel its instant benefits to my vitality and sense of well being, and that is why I want to share it with the world.
More About Qigong
Qigong is a 5000 year old energy art for strengthening the flow of life force & improving health. Its recent surge in popularity has been a result of Qigong’s fun and dynamic movements of practice. Magnetic energy fields are formed and created in a slow graceful manner. The Qi (life force) literally throbs and pulsates in your hands. Some say it’s the most tangible experience of the spiritual life force energy. It yields a strong “Qi Feeling” in minutes.
200 million people are practicing Qigong worldwide, but it wasn’t always this way. A long kept secret, Qigong was seldom ever taught outside family bloodlines and royalty in China. It gave women the ability to enhance“Jing” (hormones) and retain their feminity for far longer than the average woman. For men, Qigong practice allowed the accumulation of Jing leading to increased sex drive, higher levels of secretion of growth hormones, and extraordinary muscular endurance. This was very useful in times of war. Qigong was passed down for thosuands of years from father to son and used by the military to build the body’s endurance. It is quite possibly the most powerful form of exercise on Earth.
Qigong is easy to do and learn. I show people where the “edges of the energy field” are located and invite them to press on the Qi.
Our bodies are adaptongenic. We root into the Earth and our legs grow strong like tree trunks.magnetic energy fills our arms. The arteries pulse with greater vigor. From a scientific perspective… Qigong does what no other form of exercise can do. While remaining in a “calm focused and relaxed state” – the body is exercising. This allows blood and Qi to move through blockages that normally cannot be crossed.
Qigong differs from traditional forms of exericse for 1 primary reason: Qigong boosts muscle and strength, yet amazingly lowers cortisol. This cortisol hormone (also known as the “stress homone”) is the enemy of longevity and breaks down muscle tissue creating inflamation in the body. Jogging and weight lifting actually accelerate the release of cortisol. Qigong enhances energy rather than depletes energy, For these reasons Qigong is a superior form of exercise and its healing power is well documented.
We believe Qigong is one of the most significant self-empowerment techniques on Earth. It is based on the fundamental science of life. Regardless of a persons beliefs or cultural background, Qigong yields the same result – enhanced vitality, and a clearer relationship with the True Source of that energy. There is a miraculous universe of Qi within each and every human being. Qigong is the practice of becoming more intimately aware of the miraculous energy that sustains all of our lives.
