Energy, Movement & Flow
Better learning through creating flow-states.
Tai chi blends flowing movements and relaxation with deep breathing techniques. It is practiced worldwide as a health-promoting form of light physical activity for mental focus.
Qigong is similar in nature to Tai Chi, being and ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that involves meditation, controlled breathing and movement exercises. The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words: Qi is pronounced chee and
is usually translated to mean the life force or vital energy that flows through all things in the universe. The second word, Gong, pronounced gung, means accomplishment, or
skill that is cultivated through steady practice. Together, Qigong means cultivating energy. It is a system practiced for health maintenance, healing and increasing vitality, which is beneficial for people of all ages. For children, it is a positive and fun way for them to ground into their bodies, while learning new ways to flow and move, while calming their minds. In these flow states, the body relaxes and the mind goes into Alpha states of consciousness, giving them an anchor to control their emotional states, while promoting peace and relaxation in their bodies. During Alpha brain states, the
brain is in a naturally heightened state of imagination, focus, awareness and concentration, which is the ideal brain state for faster learning and expansion of consciousness.
