YoQi: Qigong Flow for a Happy Heart
Awaken your inner healer, promote healthy blood circulation, and open your heart!
Qigong Flow for a Happy Heart is a complete routine designed to purify, nourish, and balance the heart and small-intestine meridians. In traditional Chinese medicine, the heart and small intestine resonate with the fire element and the virtue of eternal happiness. The heart is a miraculous organ. It contracts and relaxes constantly, one hundred thousand times per day, at a precise rhythm to sustain our life. Energetically, the heart is the home of our spirit, called shen in Chinese. Its state of balance allows us to connect meaningfully to the world and follow our most accurate inner guidance.
A happy heart is a calm heart, and it expresses itself through laughter, enjoyment, and love. This routine begins with stretch and flow movements that open the heart and ignite the fire element to detoxify negative emotions and excess heat, and to activate your internal love engine. This is followed by Qigong Flow movements that focus on cultivating internal alchemy by uniting fire and water—ultimately invoking your sense of compassion and wisdom. Choose this routine to promote healthy blood circulation, connection, love, healing energy, and patience. It can help if you feel anxious, rejected, depressed, unfulfilled, or burned out.
