Chi Gong can be translated as, “working with your vital energy”. It is an ancient Chinese system of healing and rejuvenation. It involves using your mind, breath and body to direct the flow of energy.
This energy, or 'chi', is the "bio-electricity" that moves in and around your body.
By learning to direct your mind, breath and body together as a unified force, you gain the ability to build your internal energy and alleviate chronic conditions.
Chi Gong meditation and exercises provide effective tools for you to relax and recharge the body’s energy, stimulating it’s natural ability to heal itself. It’s practice ultimately leads to an increased sense of mind/body connection and control over your health.
EASY TO LEARN - POWERFUL RESULTS!
Chi Gong’s healthful, stress-reducing techniques can be easily learned and practiced anywhere requiring only a few minutes a day for a direct and positive influence on your mental, emotional and physical well-being.
Through Chi Gong you have a simple and direct way to actively stimulate your body's natural tendency toward health.
THE BODY INNATELY KNOWS HEALTH
A healthy, balanced mind and body is our natural state. Problems develop when we get off-track and out of balance. This can happen due to stress, physical or mental trauma, injury or simply being pulled "off" by a busy, hectic lifestyle.
By losing our inner connection, we come out of alignment. Chi Gong is the art and skill of sensing our health and energy states and consciously, actively cultivating a state of vibrant well-being.
With practice, you acquire the ability to sense the impact you are having on your health moment to moment. And you develop the capacity to immediately and directly adjust that influence.
By tapping into the body's innate wisdom, you are guided and supported in the choosing of proper foods to eat, environments and activities to be involved in, and the dissolving of negative habits and behaviours.
Through Chi Gong practice a dialogue is opened between you and your body. A rapport and partnership is nurtured that is powerfully life-affirming. Rather than health or "unhealth" being something that "just happens" to you, this internal art nourishes a conscious partnership with your body and Nature, the source from which it springs.
This conscious partnership allows you to take charge of your energy, mind, health ..... and life!
