The Benefits of Qigong
The ancient art of Qigong practice brings tremendous health and well being. Qi is the life force known through many cultures by different names and also measured in the scientific community of China and the U.S. as a tangible force that can positively impact our body.
Qigong is the cultivation or practice of drawing Qi, storing Qi, and directing Qi throughout the body. This includes learning to direct Qi into key energy gates, internal organs, and bodily meridians that also correspond with acupuncture meridians and acupuncture points.
The reason for learning this art is to develop the ability to utilize the natural forces already existing in nature (and within ourselves) for the development of health and awareness and to learn to consciously clear blockages within our body and being.
Developing awareness just means to be mindful of what already actually exists within and around us. The extent of this awareness can grow tremendously depending on where we place our intent. Like studying in a university a particular subject and mastering it, we make an intensive focus on studying our internal awareness, using movement combined with focus.
Studies have concluded that movement meditation is more effective than typical meditations, as the mind is meditative and alert when mindfully moving. Mindful practice of Qigong activates Theta, Alpha, and Beta brain waves which many meditations strive to achieve. Most practices are surprisingly simple and millions worldwide find Qigong produces health benefits without requiring incredible agility and strength to perform.
This studio and the teachings have become a regular part of my Saturdays. It is a refuge from the chaos and craziness of life for me. Har Har, the teacher, is very welcoming to students of every capability. He teaches with care explaining carefully how to correctly do a form and what we are accomplishing when doing the form. I really appreciate his teachings and the care and attention he shows his students. Altogether it is a healing and uplifting way to spend my Saturday morning. I highly recommend attending Shen Ren studio.”
Your studio is the nicest studio I’ve ever seen! I love all the sunlight and nature surrounding. Somehow I feel calmed and refreshed after your classes. I love the clean feeling of the wood floors under the feet with fresh air breezing in from outside. It’s such a nice, meditative setting. Thank you for making such a beautiful space for us to be in and for your relaxed, respectful and humble style of sharing Qi Gong from the heart.”
