Move and Meditate – Qigong For The Spine – Introduction
As our spine is central to nearly every movement in our body then it’s always a good idea to help promote open and free flowing Qi through this area. The Qigong routine in the video in this page shows you a simple movement and then a simple meditation, using the spine as our central focus.
Move and Meditate – Qigong For The Spine – Method
- Posture – adopt the correct sitting or standing posture, paying particular attention to the back, neck and shoulders.
- Breath – practice a few abdominal breaths to bring more Qi into your lower abdomen.
- Tuck the chin towards the chest to create length in the back of the neck
- Smiling collar bones then elbow press
- Shoulder rotation (“swimming using the shoulders”)
- Rounding and opening shoulders
- Gentle spinal twist
- Knocking On The Gates Of Life
- Meditation – follow along with the 10 minute meditation to visualise the relaxation and revitalisation of the spinal column.
