Qi Gong Sunday Editions - 3 Weekends!

Open Minds Fusion Studio is excited to be hosting QiGong on Tuesday and Friday afternoons, and now 3 Sunday afternoons in jan/ feb. led by Deborah Heltzer!

🙏What is Qi Gong? It can be described a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. There are likely thousands of qigong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”). The mission of the National Qigong Association is to help each individual find a path that best supports their personal goals, and to evolve this amazing energetic science.

It is a form of gentle exercise composed of movements that are repeated a number of times, often stretching the body, increasing fluid movement (blood, synovial and lymph) and building awareness of how the body moves through space.

( Read more about this particular style of Qi gong below.)

What is Spring Forest QiGong? Glad you asked!

Spring Forest Qigong is based on the simple yet profound understanding that everything in the universe is energy.

It all started more than 5,000 years ago when Chinese scholars, studying the workings of the universe, first discovered and established the Eastern scientific principle that everything is energy
Fast forward a few millennia to the early 20th Century, when a brilliant young physicist named Albert Einstein came to the same conclusion. Einstein established the Western, scientific principle that everything in the universe is based on dynamic relationships of energy. Again, everything is energy. As Einstein also recognized, energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but energy can be transformed.

The ancient Chinese scholars called this universal energy qi or chi (pronounced "chee"). In China, the study and practice of transforming the energy (qi) to live a life of optimum health, wellness, and happiness came to be called qigong. (Qigong has many other facets as well, but it is the healing aspect we are focused on.)

For thousands of years the practice of qigong was a closely-guarded secret revealed only to a chosen few. Even today, traditional qigong techniques can be very difficult to learn, requiring years of rigid, disciplined practice to develop proficiency. Traditional qigong masters still withhold the most powerful qigong techniques from all but a select few.

After years of dedicated study with some of the finest qigong masters in his native China, Qigong Master Chunyi Lin has taken away the mystery, rigid discipline, and difficulty.

Modernized Qigong for Everyone to Learn
Spring Forest Qigong is a revolutionary approach to the ancient Chinese teachings, revised and enhanced for the 21st Century.

This practice is the PERFECT compliment to any of our other yoga or aerial classes. For those of you on a package, QiGong is considered a GROUND class.
