These classes are free and everyone is welcome. However, if you’d like to contribute as a thank you for the class this week, 100% of donations from Friday 7th August – Friday 14th August will go to the RNLI local branch in Fenit, County Kerry, Ireland by way of a thank you to our lifeboat volunteers for risking their lives to save others.

Introduction To Qigong for Emotional Balance
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) there is no separation between physical, mental and emotional functions of the body and mind. Everything is connected. The major organ systems of the body function in both physical and non-physical ways. For example, the Lung system plays a part in breathing but is also responsible for our sense of value and self-worth. It is also the organ system mostly impacted when we suffer from loss or grief (as grief is the associated emotion of the Lung system).
Bearing this interconnectedness of mind and body, we can use physical movements in order to release, balance and regulate our emotions. By physically improving our circulation of blood, Qi and body fluids through simple Qigong movements, we can also create favourable conditions by which stagnant emotions, e.g. anger, can be released and regulated. You do not need to think to hard about making this happen. Simply move your body and let the Qi do the rest for you!
In this video you can follow along with some simple Qigong to help you to regulate your emotions. At the same time, these movements will energise your body and evoke a more positive mood. Practice over a period of time and these simple movements of your body will facilitate a healthy emotional transformation.
Integrating Qigong For Emotional Balance Into Your Day
Use these simple movements whenever you have a few moments at home, in the garden or when out walking. You need only spend a few minutes but practised little and often, you’ll soon begin to reap the rewards of feeling more positive and balanced on an emotional level.
