Come and join Eva Alewa in Nature’s beauty for a wonderful movement practice that offers you rejuvenation, increased energy and stamina, paired with flexibility and joy.
It is very important to connect the human body, with its own subtle energy fields, to the powerful, unlimited energy flows of Yin coming from the Earth and Yang shining down from the heavens like the Sun. Qigong helps you to access these natural fields: free of charge, full of life!
The ancient Taoists understood that everything alive has Qi or Chi, or prana, mana or life-force (electromagnetic currents). They learned how to increase vitality by pulling in more life-force with a certain combination of movement, breath, visualization/intent/ awareness plus the opening of joint and energy centers that can store Chi. Qigong is the underlying internal health practice behind most Asian martial arts.
In Chi Self Massage you employ your own internal Chi. By practicing 10 min a day you clear blockages from energy channels. You will feel a big improvement in complexion, the sense organs, the internal organs and general stamina. Qigong Movements gather qi and harmonize the qi flow opening the energy centers. Qigong Meditation aids using your life force efficiently to achieve better internal “mileage”.
This workout can be done very gently or more strenuously depending on the individual’s desire, understanding that unnecessary effort is a waste of precious energy.
