Tai Chi QiGong (Shibashi style)
Practicing Qi Gong relaxes and energizes at the same time, and practicing with a group amplifies that many times, even when the group is online. Deborah does her best to be outside in a beautiful place for the online sessions, connecting to nature! Come check it out and see if it's for you!
Tai Ji QiGong Shibashi combines the flowing movements of Tai Ji (“Tai Chi”) with the breath and simplicity of QiGong (“Chi Gong”). It can be practiced anywhere in any clothes, standing or seated. It is modifiable and accessible for everyone – the breath alone has many healing benefits.
Practicing QiGong (which means energy work) stimulates the flow of energy through the body’s fascia/meridians, enhancing vitality, mood, and longevity. It is quite helpful for hypertension, digestive issues, and back/shoulder issues.
In our 40-45 minute sessions we are practicing movements from the first and second set of the Shibashi series along with some warmup and intuitive movement. Deborah guides the movements and gives gentle reminders to relax, focus, imagine, and feel to deepen the benefits of the practice. She also suggests hints and modifications to protect and suit our unique bodies. We begin and end by connecting with ourselves and each other to magnify the benefit of the practice.
In 1991, the United Nations Development Programme recommended the promotion of Taiji Qigong Shibashi worldwide, and it is promoted as a health exercise by the governments of Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.
