What is Qigong?
Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, and focused intent. There are likely thousands of qigong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”). Qigong is a general term used to describe a wide variety of training paths, which all have intrinsic benefits, but differ in areas focus, intention, and methodology.
what are the benefits of qigong?
Qigong opens the flow of energy in meridians used in acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Physically, slow gentle qigong movements warm tendons, ligaments, and muscles; tonify vital organs and connective tissue; and promote circulation of body fluids (blood, synovial, lymph). Thousands of studies have shown qigong effective in helping to heal life challenges ranging from high blood pressure and chronic illness to emotional frustration, and mental stress.
Within the larger path of Personal Cultivation, there are a number of different paths of cultivation. In the Atlantic Warriors Qigong classes we will be focusing on two of these areas.
Health: A self-cultivation practice to improve, sustain, and maximize overall well-being.
Martial: A practice that increases one’s defensive and offensive martial abilities.
