Qi Gong is an ancient self healing practice that is both restorative and preventive. It utilizes universal energy or Qi through a series of movements, visualizations, meditation and breathing known as Gong or practice. Qi Gong utilizes the universal life force energy for the maintenance and promotion of balance, harmony and peace of mind, empowering the immune system, increasing well-being, happiness vitality and optimal health. It originated in China thousands of years ago and more recently experiencing a renaissance. It has gained wide recognition all over the world practiced by 100,000’s of thousands of people. There are many different Qi Gong forms or practice with different movements and focus depending on the form and teacher. Anyone can practice Qi Gong at any age and find benefits to their health and sense of well-being. The key is in the practice. The more consistent the practice, the greater the benefit!
There are two different forms that we teach and practice depending on the individual and what best suits there needs. For the more enthusiastic and committed practitioner both forms can be practiced. Although we only teach one form at a time with usually 6 months to a year before the other form might be considered. One form was developed by Master Ou which has several different levels of movement practice, an advanced practice, a healing practice and visualizations. You can find more information about Master Ou and Pan Gu Shengong at www.pangu.org. The other form we teach is a Medical Qi Gong which is beneficial for unblocking and balancing energy, prevention of illness, increased vitality, relief from chronic disease and pain, relief from depression anxiety and other disruptive emotional states such as anger and fear. This Medical Qi Gong practice was taught to us by Master Ming-Kit Kwan. You can find more information about this Medical Qi Gong form and Master Kwan at www.kootenayqigong.com.
