Qigong for Pulmonary Health
Breathing is essential for life.
Are you struggling with Decreased Endurance? Fatigue? or Anxiety?
Are you looking to improve your breath control and general fitness?
Have you ever considered QiGong or Tai Chi for improving your health?
People have been using Qigong and Tai chi for its health benefits for over 5,000 years. Qigong is a self-care practice that focuses on 4 elements: breathing, movement, meditation and self-massage. Through my own studying and practicing, I have found QiGong and Tai Chi to help me balance the craziness of my every day stress, improve strength, balance and overall wellbeing. I love this Pulmonary Health program for it is easy to do from a sitting or standing position so it can be modified to all levels of fitness. It uses movement patterns that help improve cardiopulmonary function and boosts immunity.
For those who missed our Core Centering Program, let me review with you what Qigong is. The Chinese word for Qi is energy or breath. The Chinese word for gong means work or practice. So, Qigong is basically the practice of building and moving energy or breath through our bodies…all for improving our physiological processes. The research has proven the many health benefits of this practice.

These benefits include: “bone health, cardiopulmonary fitness, physical function, falls prevention and balance, general quality of life, immunity, and psychological factors such as anxiety, depression and self-efficacy” Am J Health Promot.2010 JUL-AUG; 24(6):e1-25
I invite you to experience this with me. Our workshops include 3 one-hour virtual sessions that take you through the fundamentals of Qigong so you can learn the basic principles and get introduced to the form. (A form is a sequence of movements). You will have a recording of the session so you can practice through the week what you learned to help you master it. If you like it, you can join a weekly live class, or just watch and practice from your workshop recording. You could also do a private session with me one on one, where I will find a program to best suite your needs.
