YoQi: Qigong Flow for Happy Lungs
Breathe into the present moment, boost your immune system, and energize your body with qi.
Qigong Flow for Happy Lungs is a complete routine designed to balance and support the lungs and large intestine. In traditional Chinese medicine, the vibration of the lungs resonates with the metal element and the virtue of courage to embrace the present moment.
The lungs take in “pure” qi from oxygen in the air and exhale “toxic” qi back into the atmosphere. As the commanders of qi, they are responsible for the synthesis of qi and defense qi (wei qi). If the lungs are weak, the immune system is compromised. When lung qi is strong, energy is metabolized, and the immune system and all the meridians benefit. Energetically, the lungs govern our ability to live life in the present moment with each breath. They are affected by sadness and grief, and their virtue is courage and righteousness.
Inspired by the Chinese spirit animal of the lungs, the tiger, this flow uses invigorating warm-ups, healing sounds, and flows that target the lung meridian to access your internal power. Choose this routine to increase your energy, prevent seasonal allergies, boost your immune system, transform sadness into courage, get inspired, and tune into the present moment.
