What is your first thought when you hear the word “fitness”? What did you picture in your mind? If you picture yourself exercising vigorously, sweating and moving fast, you’re probably not the only one to interpret fitness this way. However, Qi fitness is quite the opposite. Qi fitness often means you have to slow down with mindful movement. Although the hard qigong is pretty aggressive in some ways, the Gong Fu skill is cultivated from slowness.
In this 10 week Qi fitness class, we are going to dive deep into the Qigong exercises. Through repetition and proficient time, it will allow us to truly experience the Qi effects. Movements can be simple and profound with a good Qi result! We will focus on cultivating “Yi Xin Yi Yi”, meaning single-heartedly, single mindfully, with each exercise.
The character, “Gong” means practice, skill, cultivation. It contains two parts; The left radical means “work”, while the right radical means “power”. Power is coming from hard work and repetitions. Sometimes, a same movement can be practiced for months or even years to build up the gongfu.
We will be practicing Qigong forms while focusing on "RE-"
