Qigong is an ancient Chinese movement practice from over 3,000 years ago with over 3,500 styles. Qigong stems from the eastern philosophy called Taoism. The word Tao (also seen as Dao) is defined as the “path” or “way” to live one’s life mirroring the movements of nature, connecting to the Universe or Source for spiritual cultivation and giving direction to our life. “Qi”, our life force energy (called prana in yoga) helps us to develop a body-mind-spiritual awareness that allows us to journey through life with calmness, clarity, joy and a sense of purpose. While integrating movements, holding positions of power, balancing, and gentle “flows”, we coordinate the breath with movement creating a moving meditation. Benefits of qigong practice includes: increased longevity, flexibility, strength, improved sleep, lowering blood pressure, lessening of anxiety, improved balance, as well as enhancing self-compassion, gratitude, and peace of mind.

I have taken my love of teaching to my latest endeavor-teaching Qigong. Sharing my knowledge and experience with my students is fulfilling and rewarding. Teaching students to activate and feel the qi/energy in their bodies is the beginning of a wonderful journey of creating a beautiful spirit-mind-body connection.

The movement is called The Fountain and it helps to strengthen the kidneys-which are associated with the Water Element, and the season of winter. Allow yourself to be reflect and rest as the dark days of the year are upon us.
In the Five Element practice this relaxing movement brings in peace and tranquility, and releases fearful and insecure feelings.
