5 Animal Qigong
Qigong is an ancient Chinese practice used for health and longevity. It can be practiced either sitting, standing or walking. Qi is our life force energy, and we work to improve the body’s immune system with breath work at the center of the practice. The type of Qigong that I’m teaching, 5 Animal Qigong, is a ‘walking’ qigong, like Taiji (Tai Chi), and consists of five sets of movements or “Animals” that relate to the five elements of Chinese medicine, the Seasons, and our organs. It’s usually easier to learn the 5 Animal Qigong forms for beginners than tai chi due to less movements to memorize.
