This goes deep! Qigong has been a part of my own personal practice for nearly 20 years. Like a reliable friend…it has always been there to guide me.
I have had thee great pleasure of turning that outward and sharing it as part of my practice with my personal clients. I wanted to share it with you too. If you are already familiar, awesome!! If not, feel free to lean in and explore. And ask questions!! I am here to support you!

Understand and take command of your QI

• Qi is quite simply your life force.
• Think of it as your invisible circulatory system.
• It circulates energy much like blood and fluids flow through your body.
• You can awaken, stimulate and use Qi.
• It is under your control.
• You want it to grow and strengthen in order to give your life radiance, longevity and clarity.
• Analogy: Your physiology gets an upgrade to -HD-.
• Qi can be accessed from the very air we breathe; from all life.
• Qi is the energy of intention. To harness it is to accomplish what we set out to.
• Qi flows through meridians which divide the body into sections according to 12 major organs.
• The central meridian is of most relevance with regard to exercise as this is our center of gravity. (right below the navel)
