YoQi: Qigong Flow to Boost the Immune System
Your immune system protects your body against pathogens like viruses, bacteria, mold, and also “external pathogens” as defined in Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) such as heat, cold, and dampness. White blood cells throughout your entire body require energy (Qi) to function. Common ways to compromise the immune system are chronic stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, toxic air, and lack of movement.
In TCM, the strength of your immune system depends on your vitality and life force energy, called Qi. People with high vitality have a strong immune system and better response to viral infection. Qigong is a selfcare practice designed to enhance your vitality Qi and effectively boost your immune system. There are three basic ways to keep the immune system strong which I call the three B’s: Balanced Digestion, Balanced Hormones and Balanced Emotions.
This easy to follow series contains a selection of routines that focus on this balance. The two core lessons are the Immune System Support Flow and Immune System Defense Flow. Both lessons include techniques for emotional balance, creating coherence between your body, mind, and spirit. There are also two bonus lessons to strengthen your wei qi (guardian energy) called Body Patting and Embrace the Tree.
