Fall signifies a time of harvest, as we gather and reap the benefits of what we have planted since spring. It is about letting go and receiving, as we say good bye to summer and prepare for a reflective time to come. When lung Qi is healthy nasal passages are open, sense of smell is acute, and voice is strong. When weakened, there is nasal congestion, excessive mucus, impaired sense of smell, and weak voice. In this workshop we will strengthen the lungs, creating an improved protective Qi mechanism.
Role of the lungs:
The lungs control breathing as they supply oxygenated blood to the organs of the body, and eliminate waste from the cells through expiration. As Qi is extracted from the air, the skin becomes moisturized, supple and elastic. Body hair and skin are governed by the lungs, and create an internal protective boundary from the external environment and its pathogens. This boundary is also called Wei Qi, it flows just under the skin and is part of our immune defense.
Class will end with a crystal bowl sound meditation. Sound has the profound ability to raise your body’s vibration, while relaxing your senses. This unique combination with Qi Gong will elevate your consciousness to another level, you won’t want to miss!
