Join Kate for a fun, energetic and ancient Qigong set designed to release stress, boost energy levels and enhance a centered and relaxed state of being. No props needed, wear comfortable clothes and eat light. No prior experience is necessary. This practice is usually done standing, but chairs or mats are also available if anyone needs to sit. All ages 16 and above are welcome. Get ready to laugh and shake up some Qi!
If you're new to Qigong and don't know what it is, here's a simple definition: Qi is often defined as "life force energy" and "gong" means movement, exercise, or practice. The Dao Yin practice uses visualization and exercise, or Qigongs, to intentionally move energy through a student's body. Through a series of purgation Qigongs, the student purposefully moves stuck energy out of their body, eliminating toxins that cause stress. (According to a recent study of medical doctors, stress is the leading factor in 80% of pathology.) Next, clean energy is added to strengthen the five yin organs through specific Qigongs designed for each Yin organ (lungs, kidneys, liver, heart and spleen). Lastly, the healthy Qi is circulated through the body via a special meditation. The process is similar to an oil change - draining old gunky energy (like oil), then running fresh, clean energy throughout the system.
The medical benefits are immense - strengthening the immune system, boosting energy levels, and relieving daily stress, to name a few. We will also work on special breathing techniques and grounding meditations, as well as learning other helpful Qigongs and methods, including color and sound therapy to tonify (strengthen) organs.
Currently, I am teaching an Advanced Class at the Red Dragon Karate School in Ballston Spa. I will also be offering an Ongoing Class at the Center for Clarity, Compassion & Contentment (Center4C) in Burnt Hills starting Wednesday, January 10, 2018. This class will explore all the many facets of this Qigong set and be a fun, uplifting, and relaxing hour designed to give students the full experience of this ancient knowledge. Certain Taoist ideas and information on Medical Qigong will be interspersed as we go along. I also offer classes at The Garden in Saratoga, occasionally, and hope to do a 6-8 week summer session outdoors (weather permitting). Updates will be posted to this website and also the Facebook page, so please stay tuned. To my knowledge, this is a unique offering, and I feel honored to be able to bring this powerful practice to our area.
