Full Moon Qigong Routine – Introduction
The Qi of the moon is particularly strong around full moon time. The moon can provide us with Qi which is more Yin in nature. The Yin functions of the body include cooling, moistening and nourishing so when we absorb Yin Moon Qi it using specific Qigong methods it can help us to balance these functions. This can be especially useful for you if your Yin is deficient (indicated by such symptoms as red eyes, dry skin and hair, constipation, restless sleep and anxiety).
The Qigong in this video can be used for:
1. If you suspect you are Yin deficient (although it’s always best to seek a diagnosis from a qualified practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine rather than attempting to diagnose yourself).
2. Feelings of tiredness and lethargy. It can be used in conjunction with last week’s Lesson 44 “Winter Qigong Routine“
Full Moon Qigong Routine – Method
- Begin by adopting the correct Qigong sitting or standing posture and performing a few abdominal breaths (see more here).
- Follow along with the “Turn To Look At The Moon” movement.
- Adopt the “Stand Like A Tree” posture and meditate on holding the moon between your hands.
- Finish your practice with a few abdominal breaths.
