About the event

It is scientifically proven that practicing gentle bodily movements with high consciousness is a great tool in maintaining and healing mental health, in addition to their undeniable benefits for the body. Conscious gentle movement can be used to take the stress and anxiety that sits on the body and decrease the level of anxiety and improve mindfulness. Qigong movements are powerful tools for healing and improving mental well-being, as it decreases stress and symptoms of past traumas and increases attention flexibility (a mindfulness practice).  Qigong movements have their roots in Chinese medicine and Taoist and Buddhist practice. Qigong is a series of practices and techniques that aim to maintain and recreate wellbeing by working on the body, breath, and mind, meaning by cultivating Qi (life force energy) in our system.

Qigong reduces the nervous system's reactive response and increases the parasympathetic relaxation response. As a level 3 Qigong instructor and a trauma-informed coach, I have designed trauma-sensitive qigong courses for body and mind balance. Being trauma-sensitive means that the way that I deliver the instructions and the movements that I choose is with consciousness and knowledge of how it might be perceived by people who have suffered (or are suffering) from traumatic and distressful incidents. I create a space for those that are suffering from anxiety and chronic stress, and PTSD to get in touch with their body and bring their mind in connection with it. The goal of the classes, ultimately, is to help reduce the symptoms and allow for more relaxation and more connection with one’s self day-to-day experiences.

Regarding the physical benefits: Qigong not only works our internal organs by massaging our kidneys, digestive systems, etc. but also gently moves and massages our facia, the connective tissue that surrounds and holds each organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber, and muscle in place. When we are stressed, our facias in some parts of the body tighten up and cause pain in different parts of the body and nerves. Eventually, these tangles can lead to various health issues. Qigong movements, when done with high awareness, remove the tangle in the facias and prevent its entanglement.

How you benefit from this course:

1. Stress sits on your body, through these mindful gentle movements, improve and elevate physical symptoms of stress and anxiety such as muscle tension and tightness, joint pain, headaches, sleep problem, hand coldness, etc.

2. By focusing on your body and breathing during movements, you can improve your present moment awareness and mindfulness skills. This can help you with getting in touch with your emotions, feelings, and actions and manage them better.

3. Improve your physical health without putting even more tension and stress on your body or your mind.

4. I am a trauma-informed coach and the movements are designed with consideration for people with PTSD.
