Live via Zoom: Moving Meditation: Tai Chi for Everyone with Bina Bou
October 7 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am MST
Why Should You Be Doing Tai Chi & Qigong During Quarantine?
“Social Distancing” is Self-Care and Health Care
Why is slow motion like Tai Chi and Qigong so healing for the human physical body and emotion?
Tai Chi’s deliberate, slow movement activates inner-self connection that helps us to disengage from DOING to BEING, and it transforms our entire being into a form of Moving Meditation.
What is Qigong (Cheegung) ?
Qi (chee) means breath of life or vital energy that flows through everything in the universe. Gong (gung) means working with or cultivating.
Qigong is a 5,000-year-old mind-body practice that develops vital energy by integrating movement, breathing techniques, and mental focus. Qigong is a series of Tai Chi movements that are gentle, flowing, meditative and self-healing. It can be done sitting or standing for people of every age and physical condition.
Tai Chi is a Chinese Martial art of stylized meditative exercise, slow circular and stretching movements.
