Experience the harmonizing and revitalizing effect of these ancient exercises rooted in Chinese medicine, martial arts, and philosophy. Chi Kung regulates the meridians, and accelerates the circulation of chi=life-force energy. It enhances your inner strength, and heightens your concentration. First of all you’ll get rid of unnecessary (often unconscious, sometimes longlasting) tension. Step by step you’ll come home in the core of your system. And from there you’ll work on the realization of your natural potential. Calm and alert, relaxed and alive.
The lesson consists of four parts:
– warming up (opening up the gates of the body, removing stagnations)
– 8 brocades (stimulating the meridians)
– tree poses (balancing your energy, strengthening your immune system)
– cooling down (integrating yin yang balance)
Chi Kung is suitable for anyone who’d like to balance one’s energy in a calm and elementary way. In any given condition. The principles can be applied while standing, walking, sitting or lying down. Intensive and challenging exercises can be practiced on a smaller and lighter level; albeit with a different effect, but certainly not less effective. The ancient Eastern masters underlined: a big movement on the outside generates a small effect on the inside; a little movement on the outside generates a big effect on the inside.
Everything -in us and around us- consists of energy. Energy flows freely, naturally fed by processes in the cosmos. But when your energy is stagnant (because of the accumulation of emotional and physical stress) that can eventually lead to a troubled view, unrest, exhaustion, disease. Chi Kung accelerates the flow of vital energy. Balancing exercises remove tension, stimulate the meridians, increase your inner strength and heighten your concentration. Chi Kung is translated as ‘internal energy exercise’ or ‘energetic labour’. It is rooted in Chinese medicine, martial arts, and philosophy. In ancient writings Chi Kung is described as ‘meditation in movement’ strengthening energetic power: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
