DVD: Introduction to Qi Gong
Qi Gong is a time-honored practice that focuses on health, relaxation, energy, and vitality.
Described as the art of effortless power, Qi Gong is easy to follow and effective for improving your health. Combining gentle stretching, energy-activating exercise, simple movements for strength, and flowing movements, Qi Gong gives a complete body/mind workout.
As part of an ancient medicine that focused on prevention, Qi Gong was often used to treat our most common ailments, like stress, pain, fatigue, depression, insomnia, and much more.
Qi means energy. Every system in your body needs energy. Your nervous system and spine conduct a tremendous amount of energy communicating mind to body and body to mind. When the Qi in your body is blocked, the systems don’t run smoothly. This practice will help to insure that all parts of your body have a fresh supply of energy.
Practice these routines and see for yourself how wonderful and enlivened you can truly feel. You will learn:
- Simple stretches for improved flexibility
- Release stress, tension, and tightness
- Activate internal energy
- Flowing movements for deep relaxation and a calm clear mind
