WHAT IS RADIANT HEART QIGONG?
Qigong (pronounced Chee-GONG) is a practice of aligning body, breath and mind, for health and meditation. Its literal translation is ‘life energy cultivation’. With roots in traditional Chinese medicine, qigong cultivates, balances and nourishes the energy aspect of our being. Qigong helps practitioners still the mind and enter a state of conscious awareness that brings serenity, clarity, and relaxation.
Radiant Heart Qigong incorporates slow-flowing, intentional movement, mindful breathing, and calm meditative focus. The focus is commonly on visualizing the movement of qi through the body’s energy centers, and balancing qi flow in the meridians and other pathways. As a form of gentle exercise, qigong movements help strengthen and stretch the body, enhance balance, increase body fluid movement, and improve awareness of how the body moves through space.
Radiant Heart Qigong embraces action and stillness, cultivating mindfulness, concentration, and presence. It empowers practitioners with calm clear energy, strength and vibrant health – bringing peace to the body, heart and spirit.
