Here are a few short films of seated Qi Gong postures. Please get in touch if you have any questions. I am happy to help you create a practice that is the most beneficial for you. Enjoy your practice.

Qi Gong uses specific movements to cultivate energy (qi) and focus our mind/intention (yi) to move our qi through the meridian pathways to release tension and clear blockages. Qi Gong can be practiced by people of all ages and aims to treat the whole person to establish energy balance and spiritual harmony as a way of self-healing. It is a form of complementary medicine and includes both dynamic and gentle postures/movements that can be practiced standing or seated. Practices can be adapted to individual needs making it an ideal aid to recovery from illness or injury as well as maintaining overall health.

Calming Monkey Mind

Our minds are very skillful at flitting from one thought to another. This movement can bring a sense of calm even while thoughts are moving through we can let them pass like clouds. Thoughts still come but our practice can be about noticing them and then letting them pass. This is the art of taming what is called monkey mind in China. This seated Qi Gong posture is also helpful for relieving headaches.
