What Else Does a Standing Qigong Practice Offer?

Qigong for a Quality Day

Our standing Qigong practice is an excellent way to start your day in a calm and focused manner. Although it is best to complete all sections, if your day starts out already crazed, consider dividing the bi-weekly practice in these 3 ways:

Use the warmup around your morning shower time

Find 5 minutes in your day to stop and utilize the breathing techniques

Use the Standing Practice before retiring

Qigong at Bedtime

Sleep has become recognized as one of the most important aspects of our overall good health. Perhaps we don’t prepare ourselves as well for a good night’s sleep as we do for our daytime lives. Using this practice a half-hour prior to retiring is a gentle way to let our bodies repair from the day’s stress.

Use the warmup to ease the day’s kinks

Use the breathing to help focus on you, not the worries of the day

Allow an evening practice to help soften a tired body and a weary mind

A consistent practice of a Standing Qigong has been proven to be a complementary method of healing for many ailments, not limited to:

Balance Flexibility

Bone Loss Muscle Tone

Blood Cortisol RA/joint stiffness

Fibromyalgia Stroke Recovery
