Benefits of Qigong and Tai Chi

The benefits of practicing Qigong and Tai Chi are found in returning to the "natural way" of the body, mind, and spirit - seamlessly incorporating universal energetic concepts into everyday movement, everyday thought, and our everyday experience/engagement of life itself. 
 
The effects of finding and cultivating this natural state-of-being and naturally abundant internal energy flow are lower stress levels, increased balance, greater overall well-being and improved health, clearer thinking, increased energy and circulation, optimal oxygenation and detoxification, improved appetite and more efficient digestion, improved metabolism, brighter eyes and clearer skin, stabilization of breathing patterns and heart rates, regulated blood pressure and blood sugar levels, optimized hormone levels, and reduced pain/inflammation, all toward experiencing one's fullest potential of personal intuition, creativity, and spirited living/longevity.

July's Qigong written by Jamie Path...
For the month of July, Sunday Tai Chi classes at Soulful Awakenings will continue to introduce and refine the movements and understanding of the beginner 24 posture Tai Chi form, working on exciting and colorful movements such as "parting the wild horses", "snake creeps down the vine", and "embrace the tiger return to the mountain" (just to name a few!). Taking a chance to counteract the increased activity of this busy summer month, we will also take an extra moment in each class to work on training our physical balance and stillness and to discover the hidden stories and life philosophies behind each of the colorful movements. If you haven't given it a try, this is a great month to begin your Tai Chi journey!

By enjoyment and popular demand, Thursday morning Qigong classes will feature an encore and continuation of last month's Bagua (8 Trigram) Qigong - practicing to find the "calm in the midst of the storm" through the ancient Taoist circle walking meditations and moving through the 8 body/mind Feng Shui methods of Heaven, Earth, Lake, Mountain, Fire, Water, Wind, and Water. "Going in circles" has never been so rewarding!

Jamie Path - Qigong/Tai Chi/Chinese Yoga

Jamie has studied and instructed movement and meditation from the eastern martial arts, health, and healing perspectives for the past 15 years.  Trained in Okinawan Karate, Northern and Southern Shaolin, and both Internal and External methods of Kung Fu, his passion is for distilling the esoteric and expansive traditions into simple, every day methods of perspective, awareness, grace and power.


Beginning classes at Soulful Awakenings focus on the gentle and relaxed external movements, alive internal awareness, and naturally coordinated breathing techniques of Qigong (Chi Kung) "Energy Cultivation" and build toward the learning and completion of a linked 24-posture Taiji (Tai Chi) "Moving Meditation" sequence.  As the main goal of the "soft" or "internal" Chinese energy arts is to restore a completely natural and unforced physical balance and energetic state of being, the practice is suitable for all ages and abilities and revered for restoring and maintaining health, enhancing physical performance and vitality, managing stress, and increasing spirit and longevity from any point.
