How is Qigong different from other fitness methods?
Qigong is built on the idea that when gentle body movements, breath practice and deep relaxation are integrated into a single practice they enhance the body’s inner healing and health-generating abilities.
Proper posture in Qigong allows us to relax the muscles and let the body’s energy travel more freely up and down the body. Proper breathing in Qigong calms the nervous system while providing the body with more oxygen to use as fuel.
Mindfulness or intention help to settle the ‘busy mind’ and focus it on the present moment which can assist in calming anxiety and reducing emotional stress.
