Qigong Routine For Spring – Introduction
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Springtime is the time for awakening the body. In nature, it is the time of new growth but also of letting go of what came before.
Spring is the season associated with the Liver/Gallbladder system which plays a role in the healthy functioning of the tendons, smooth flow of Qi, planning and decision making. It is also associated with the Wood element in TCM. We can think of ourselves as being like a tree; grounded and anchored solidly so that we don’t become easily blown off course. At the same time, like a tree, we are flexible, not rigid, so can easily go with the flow.
The Qigong routine in this video will help you to become more flexible in your physical body while remaining stable and grounded. Mentally it will help you become more clear and creative so if you are thinking of starting something new, practice this routine and then get started! 🙂
Qigong Routine For Spring – Method
- Abdominal breathing to bring yourself into the Qigong state.
- Six Healing Sound connected with the Liver system to discharge any waste Qi and let go of what you don’t want in the body or mind.
- Chest opening, side stretch and upper back stretch.
- Side to side groin stretch.
- Gentle knee bends.
- Abdominal breath and observation of how you feel after your practice.
