According to the Chinese calendar in 2022 our life will rule with the energy of the water-Tiger.
What are the characteristics of the tiger?
Tigers are powerful, they are majestic, they represent internal power.
The Tiger is also the spiritual totem for 2022. It represents the inner spiritual power, the type of power that every human should display to show confidence and fortitude in life.
In Chinese medicine, the tiger represents the density of the bones, spine, tendons, skin, teeth, and hair.
Why is it important to practice Tiger Qigong in this new year?
This form of ancient Qigong is represented most strongly by the lung.
The lung governs and energizes all the meridians of the body, helping us to achieve and maintain a high level of resilient well-being.
Tiger Qigong is a uniquely potent practice designed to bolster our health and deepen our spiritual connection to universal energy.
Benefits of Tiger Qigong:
Tiger Qigong is excellent to disperse Qi stagnation in the physical body.
This ancient Qigong has both medical and martial arts applications and increases the harmonizing of Qi (energy) of the whole body.
The movements of the tiger open and massage all the joints.
Remove toxins from the body.
Strengthens ligaments and muscles.
Promotes spinal health.
Provides emotional balance.
One of the reasons people start practicing Qigong is the excess stress and the illnesses that stress is causing them.
The constant energy drain due to stress causes major wear and tear on your body and imbalances the energetic functioning of your organs.
The liver is one of the organs that is most easily unsettled by stress and its related emotional disorders such as anxiety and depression.
According to the Five Element theory, each organ shares a special “mother-child” relationship with another organ. For example, the heart is the “mother” of the lungs.
And many of us know that when mom is feeling tired, cranky, or frazzled, the child will feel it.
Over time, this chronic energy imbalance manifests as a physical imbalance.
Our lungs control the circulation of the Wei-Qi, which is the defensive "Qi" that protects you from the invasion of flu and colds.
The Wei-Qi circulates on the surface between the skin and muscles and works to warm the body. If your Wei-Qi is weak, the skin and muscles will not be warmed properly.
A weakness in the lungs can lead to a weakness in the Wei-Qi, making a person prone to frequent colds and allergies.
Through regular practice of the White Tiger Qigong form, one will strengthen one’s lung function and your Wei-Qi.
There is nothing mysterious about the Tao. It’s as simple and natural as breathing. But it takes a true master to teach a world that’s lost its way, even the right way to breathe, how to get back on track again.
Thirty four years ago I just knew that I found my balance.
Qigong is a way of exercising which is about reconnecting and balancing body, mind, and soul.
Chinese medicine teaches us it’s not only about a sweaty workout that keeps our bodies strong. Qigong is the way to becoming silent, aware of the Qi breathing with consciousness and gentle moves.
I want to share with you this ancient and powerful way of healing. Come join me on March 26, 2022, for the workshop: White Tiger Qigong for Happy Bones and Joints.
