As the season changes from Summer to Fall, temperatures drop and the air dries up. These atmospheric changes put our lungs under stress and we become vulnerable to respiratory illnesses like cold and flu.
In traditional Chinese Medicine, the lungs are a yin organ and, are associated with positive emotions such as courage, righteousness, and bravery, and negative emotions like grief, sadness, depression, loneliness, pain, and, detachment.
The lungs are also associated with the western direction, the metal element, the virtue of courage to embrace the present moment, joints, bones, and tendons.
It is time to strengthen your lungs and prevent flu and allergies with the practice of Qigong exercises and, a Taoist diet.
At Sadana Center we practice Qigong exercises in conjunction with the season and the weather.
One of my favorites to practice during the Fall Season is a set known as Tiger Qigong.
At this time of the year, we start practicing more this style to help my students stay healthy during these seasonal changes.
The Symbolic Tiger
One of the functions of the Lung is to govern and energize all the meridians of the body.
Strong Lung Qi helps us maintain wellness. We will be more susceptible to illness if the Lung Qi is weak.
Thus, in Chinese medicine, the tiger is the spiritual animal of the Lung and stands for the essential Lung Qi and vital breath.
Tiger Qigong help to strengthen the lungs and also their powerful movements help to create stronger joints and bones.
Let's welcome the Fall Season with the powerful "Shamanic White Tiger" Qigong.

Our diet plays an important role in controlling seasonal influenza for this new season.
When digestion is efficient, there is less tendency for mucus to accumulate.
In our next post, we will talk about the Taoist diet, what to eat and what to avoid during the Fall Season, Qigong exercises that are good for allergies, and healing sounds to restore the lungs.
