Qigong for Women
Qigong has been around for thousands of years. The movements are designed to move qi in a way that opens the blockages inside the body. These movements also nourish the organs, lift the spirit and help calm the mind. Qigong practice is an exercise that can help women to become aware of their body’s internal qi or energy, helping them get in touch with themselves—physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Cultivation of qi starts an amazing process of healing and life prolonging science. We replenish our qi with the food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink. The need for these to be as pure as possible is very important. To cultivate qi, we only need to learn to relax our bodies and practice these ancient movements and meditation that have been passed down for over 7,000 years. With continued practice, we become more aware of who we really are, and our self-confidence, as well as ability to maintain an even balance of the emotional, physical and spiritual bodies, naturally develop.
Women are beautiful beings that thrive when joy, love and compassion radiates from their hearts and bodies. The practice of qigong automatically brings these up for them to nourish and embrace. Deep-rooted emotions that do not nourish the body will be brought out to deal with. Qigong practice will give the strength to release and move forward in their own power. In many cultures, women are linked to the beauty of flowers. If one’s goal is to preserve health and beauty, she should be in touch with her inner self, and live from a place of peace and balance. Learn the theory behind qigong, practice persistently and these goals will be achieved.
