Youthful Vigor: Qi Gong for Healthy Bones and Joints with Wesley Salter

Sep 23, 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Learn to invigorate, circulate and move yin & yang energies into your bones and joints with Qi Gong.

“Add not only years to your life, but life to your years.”

Qi Gong for Healthy Bones & Joints is an amazing practice focused on bringing a youthful vigor into the major joints & bones of the body. From a place of peace & calm we will awaken deep breathing and relax into a soothing moving meditation. With the intention of discovering a more fluid range of graceful motion within the body’s joints and packing an abundance of Qi into the bones [energetic storage units] we will celebrate a growing younger with our practice.  Raise your energetic vibration and empower a direct connection to the universe & nature, by tapping into your ‘life-force’ potential.

Qi Gong, often referred to as ‘Taoist Yoga’ or ‘Standing Yin Yoga’, is a powerful ancient Chinese practice based on the premise that the human body is an energy system.  Once guarded as a secret practice, Qi Gong practitioners mirror the movement of nature to awaken the flow of Qi. This unique practice is composed of tension-releasing stretches, graceful moving meditations and nature-inspired standing postures, all harmonized with balanced breathing and a present, clear mind. The intention of the practice is to cultivate BIG Qi [Life Force/Prana], prevent disease, and to promote a long healthy life.
