Qi Gong for a Healthy Heart
Too often in modern life, we feel emotionally stressed, agitated, and anxious. This is probably why the World Health Organization says cardiovascular disease is the number one killer in the world. Heart health is one of the few places both Western medical practitioners and Eastern agree: stress and anxiety are significant factors in heart disease. The more stressed out, anxious, and overwhelmed you are, the higher your risk. The easiest way to reduce (or even eliminate) your risk is to actively release stress, anxiety, and stuck or unexpressed emotions. This keeps your inner emotional state calm, relaxed, and at peace, so your heart stays healthy, nourished, and whole. In Qi Gong for a Healthy Heart, Master Teacher Lee Holden guides you through a simple Qi Gong routine to clear stress, release anxiety, improve circulation, and bring healing energy to your heart.
Qi Gong for Longevity
Longevity has been a quest for humankind cross-culturally for centuries… and no other culture has studied how to age gracefully than the Ancient Chinese. Based on 4,500 years of practice and refinement, the ancient Chinese medical practice of Qi Gong can help practitioners “Add not only years to your life, but life to your years.” It is a simple, effective way to reduce and even reverse the effects of aging… in just minutes a day. In Qi Gong for Longevity, Master Teacher Lee Holden guides students through a simple Qi Gong routine anyone can use to age with grace. The routine uses gentle stretches, energetic activations, and easy-to-follow flowing movements.
Qi Gong for Better Balance
Studies show that Qi Gong is one of the best forms of therapy to prevent falls. The practice uses slow, graceful movement, mindful exercise, and energy activations to help practitioners get rooted, secure, and connected. In Qi Gong for Better Balance, Master Teacher Lee Holden guides students through simple, practical, and easy-to-follow exercises to help prevent falls, strengthen the lower legs and feet, and improve balance. Holden provides several modifications for students at all fitness levels. Modifications include seated changes for those who can’t stand. “You start from where you are, and then build strength and energy from there,” says Holden.
Qi Gong Seated Routine
Qi Gong is called the “art of effortless power.” It has been practiced for over 4,000 years in China to activate healing energy in the body. As your “Qi” or “Life-Force Energy” releases and flows freely through your body, you’ll feel a natural sense of calm and peace. This routine activates your body’s natural healing abilities, clears stress and tension, strengthens the lower legs, and uses slow, graceful flows to create deep relaxation… all from a seated position. In the Qi Gong Seated Routine, Master Teacher Lee Holden guides you through an energizing seated Qi Gong routine. You can do this routine while lying in a hospital bed healing from surgery, seated in a wheelchair, or at your desk in the office.
