I wrote these words to reflect the time of year.
It is important to maintain our health in the light of the covid 19 virus. We need a strong immune system, a calm mind and smooth emotions to cope with the challenges that life throws at us. We can do this by choosing to practice some Qigong and Tai Chi.
Also mindful breath meditation can help.
I am putting some practices onto YouTube for my students. Look for 'Sue Keady Qigong'
Growth! Spring is here and time to grow.
After the winter rest its time to emerge into the sunshine and get ready to unfold the body and mind to grow - just like the plants.
Begin to stretch the body and release the mind from reflective winter thoughts.
Allow yourself to step out into action.
This wonderful and positive process of following seasonal energy change promotes health by flowing with life rather than pushing against it.
As the Yin power of winter gives way to the emerging Yang force of spring we change our practice to reflect this change in energy.
Qigong exercises for Spring:
Butterfly sweeping: for shifting 'stuck' Qi
Golden Sun for enlivening the body cells and strengthening the protective layer of 'Wei Qi'
Don't fight ~ Let Go ~ Be Soft ~ Be Strong
