October Qigong : Eight Brocades or Baduanjin QigongPosted by Annamarie Pamphilis on Oct 5, 2023 in Health Blog | 2 comments
Good afternoon Qi Friends!
I am grateful that you were all able to stop by today. Today I focused on the Eight Brocades Qigong. It’s a nice practice to help boost your energy, mood and immune system. To prepare for the upcoming cold season it is imperative that we keep our Three Treasures strong. These are energy centers within the body that when fueled bring health and vitality to the mind, body and spirit. The Three Treasures are Jing(considered the root of our vitality), Qi (Life force) and Shen (Spirit or essence). The following sequences of forms will help you do just that.
One of my favorite teachers is Mimi Kuo-Deemer who in this video is teaching the Eight Brocades or Baduanjin Qigong (which is what we did today in class). Notice the profound joy in her face as she practices and sweetly smiles during a couple of photo bombs. For the month of October in Westlake we will be practicing the Eight Brocades and in honoring the Autumn season, White Tiger Qigong will be introduced.
