Qi Gong (Chi Kung) is a powerful yet gentle dynamic movement exercise from China. This class involves 45m of Gift of the Tao movement sets with 15m of warm up and explanations.
What makes Gift of the Tao (GoT) a unique form of Qi Gong is its nonlinear approach to spiritual growth. Rather than a rigid outline for progression in the system, GoT adapts to your particular needs. This ensures every session will be beneficial and suited for integrating your Body Mind and Spirit.
    The complete set of GoT Qigong uses dynamic movement patterns to work out the entire body and energy system. This helps improve energy flow and raise your frequency for improved health and awareness. The end result is an expanded and balanced state of being.
The atmosphere I aim to create with each class is one of unconditional positive regard for where you’re at Physically, Emotionally, and Spiritually.  Also called “Sacred Space” in many lineages.
You can leave your fear of  judgement at the door! I want you to feel welcome and free to experience Spirit and the energy states we shift through without needing to worry about whether you’re getting any of the moves “right.” The foundation is in building our connection to our Highest Self, Source, God, etc. and adjustments and refinement comes with time.

How does Chi Kung work really for healing?

If you’re not clear on whether Chi Kung is for you-here’s another more scientific explanation.  Dr. Raymond Francis is a well known author and famous for healing from a terminal illness, and he now works to share his findings with the world and is designing a class that elementary school kids can understand about health care. He’s broken it down into this for the purposes of treatment (not for identifying):

There are only two causes for disease. Any disease.

There is either malfunctioning cells, due to deficient energy OR toxins. Its really that simple, but you can look up his videos on youtube if you want to hear more.

The point is when cells aren’t working properly we get sick, and they can stop working due to insufficient energy OR overload of toxins.

Chi Kung is healing because it is a system of improving the energetic flow through the body. This means more awareness through your different pathways, and more awareness leads to increase blood flow, nutrient flow, and everything the cells need to function optimally. So Chi Kung works directly on the cause of disease due to insufficient energy by opening up communication between the cells and restoring homeostasis to the body.

This also happens to lead to an increased awareness and sensitivity to toxins. After my practice I notice that I am more aware of what foods my body needs, that I am less able to eat unhealthy and toxic foods, and that I no longer can stand stale or polluted air for long periods. This had lead to me gradually changing my lifestyle to remove toxins and have a more vibrant and healthy life!
