Qigong (“chee-GONG”) often referred to as Chinese yoga, is an ancient practice of moving and cultivating energy. When we begin practising qigong we learn how to balance internal energy to heal ourselves physically, emotionally and spiritually. When we move in a slow, rhythmic fashion while focusing on breathing, we begin healing on all levels since healing can’t take place when we’re restless, stressed, or fearful. Each qigong movement is meditation in motion, and a seated meditation begins each class similar to yoga. Qi means energy, vitality, life force, and gong means work or to cultivate, so a literal translation of qigong is energy workout or cultivating energy. We will be learning several warm up exercises called silk reeling, and a set of 18 movements called Sibashi 1. In Sibashi 1 each movement is repeated 6 to 12 times to achieve a flowing state. The beauty of qigong is that it can be done seated or standing and anyone may take classes regardless of physical challenges.
