Energy Management with Qigong

Do you find your energy levels go up and down through the day? Do you find your energy gets depleted in certain situations?

Qigong practice can give you techniques for energy management to use throughout the day, maintaining and enhancing your energy levels.

Sometimes we might want to increase our energy or focus, perhaps if we have something we need to get done. Sometimes we will want to feel more relaxed, especially when we are practicing in the evening before bed. At other times we might want more of a balance between being energised and calm.

It's useful to know how to adjust our practice so we can make it work for what we need at that particular moment.

We can use qigong as a tool for energy management by learning some simple techniques.

This is a clip from the Fundamentals of Energy Flow for Health class, every Friday, 9-9.30am.

If you're interested in learning some skills to help you manage your energy, you can book a class here, or contact us for more details. You are welcome to join, whether you are a complete beginner or have done qigong before.

Developing health and resilience

Winter is approaching in the northern hemisphere, and here in the UK it's getting cold and damp. So it's useful to have effective ways of keeping ourselves healthy and building our resilience.

This is a time when naturally we want to do less, stay warm and hibernate to some extent. But our busy lives mean that for most of us this is impossible. Depletion of our energy and internal resources can be more likely at this time of year.

In the weekly classes at the moment, we're exploring ways we can use body, mind and energy skills to build our energy and nourish ourselves. We're using techniques that give us more energy and vitality, while being gentle and kind to ourselves.

We are really lucky to have access to these time tested mind-body-energy exercises. They have been used to keep people strong and healthy for thousands of years. And over the years these ancient practices have been refined and developed, evolving to stay alive and relevant today.

 

 

In this 3 min video, Tim talks about how in Fully Alive, we continue to explore and stay curious. We are finding simple, effective ways we can use the techniques and skills of Chi Kung and the Shaolin arts in our everyday lives.
