About the event
PLEASE NOTE THE FINAL SATURDAY SESSION WILL BE HELD FROM 12PM TO 1PM. ALL OTHER SESSIONS ARE FROM 3PM TO 4PM ADELAIDE TIME.
During these classes, you will be introduced to specific practices from the Taoist Medical Qigong lineage of Lao Tzu. In China, Qigong has been used for healing and strengthening the body for centuries. The chosen sequence of movements from White Tiger Qigong's 8 Trigram Organ Qigong together with specific meditations can ease back pain, strengthen the spinal column and the torso to minimise risk of future back problems, and improve the flow of energy (Qi) and blood in the body to boost your natural healing abilities. Added to this, better care of your spinal column leads to better flow of Qi and nutrients to the brain, thus enhancing brain health!
Characteristics of 8 Trigram Organ Qigong include:
-Smooth continuous flowing movements
-Correct, natural alignments
-Use of naturally efficient motion
-Supple and soft movements
-Reaching one’s full range of motion in the trunk and upper limbs
-Using ground energy to stay rooted, by feeling rooted from the feet and legs
White Tiger Qigong will deepen your body connection to new levels, and effectively enhance the internal communication systems of your body to support increasing mobility, circulation, flexibility, and much more.This truly is a powerful form which can support transformation both physically and energetically, as well as detoxify the emotional body.
Be ready to move, using these movements to attain true, deep relaxation. The movements can be modified to suit different levels of ability, and all age groups are welcome. Be prepared to feel good!
What is Qigong?
Qi means Energy, and Gong is Cultivation, so Qigong is a way of cultivating your energy. Taoist Medical Qigong is an ancient meditative exercise system for enhancing health and well-being. The foundations of this system are rooted in Classical Chinese Medicine, Lao Tzu Taoism, the wisdom of the I-Ching, and contemplation of the natural world.
