In this one-day course we will cover the first movements of Dragon and Tiger. These primary movements ideal for any age or fitness level improve physical balance, coordination, flexibility and help release stress and pain. You will learn:
Dragon and Tiger Qigongi helps the body rid itself of stagnant chi that is found any where there is a physical, emotional or psychic blockage of energy. It improves the flow of chi, blood and other fluids and increases the body's energy to boosts its own natural healing capacities.
As you continue to practice Dragon and Tiger, you are likely to become more aware of the different parts of your body and develop a heightened sense of your chi moving along its pathways. As this happens, you will use your intent together with your movements to more effectively build and circulate your chi.
For those in the medical and healing professions, this course is an excellent introduction to medical qigong. The practice is also particularly beneficial for body workers, acupuncturists and healthcare professionals to avoid burnout.
I recently returned from a three week instructor training in a chi gung practice called “Gods Playing in the Clouds”. This intensive was held at Menlo College near San Francisco and I’d like to share some details about my experience.
