Benefits

Dating back to over 2.500 years, used by Chinese Medicine, Buddhism, Taoism and Martial Arts, Chi Kung is the act of nurturing health, nourishing life force energy by coordinating body movement with breathing. It is meditative and it both cleanses and strengthens, stimulating the circulation of energy. Chi Kung improves overall health and contributes to longevity, creating a peaceful state of mind. No wonder that Tai Chi was inspired by Chi Kung and Martial Artists use Chi Kung to improve their training.

Some of the main scientifically proven benefits of having a regular practice of Chi Kung are:

– Ease stress and promote balance

– Improve immunity and cancer-protection

– Improve cardio-pulmonary function

– Strengthen the organs

– Prevent injury of joints, ligaments and bones

– Loosen the muscles and build athletic power

– Speed recovery time from injuries and operations

– Improve longevity and vitality

 

“Qigong or Chi Kung cultivates our bodies through physical movement and develop in us acute mental awareness. We can also engage in regular meditation to nurture our insight. With a consistent meditation practice that can be as simple as breathing exercises, we can cultivate mindfulness and clarity to deal with our emotions in a healthy way. Through meditation we develop the equanimity to accept the unsatisfactory circumstances of our lives with compassion and loving kindness.”

Dr. Xiaolan Zhao

 

Chi Kung has its origins in:

  • Chinese Shamanism, linked to the connection between Mankind and Nature, as a means to find harmony between the human body and nature’s elements;
  • Taoism, through the consistent practice of Chi Kung it was believed that spirit and body were in balance and harmony between Yin Yang was found;
  • Buddhism, certain types of Chi Kung were developed by Buddhists to compliment their seated meditations with movements which promoted serenity and awareness;
  • Chinese Medicine, Chi Kung promotes overall health and therefore its practice has been advised by many Traditional Chinese Doctors as a preventative and restorative method for the general balance of the organism and to strengthen specific organs;
  • Martial Arts, since the practice of Chi Kung greatly improves performance for athletes, Martial Artists designed and developed some forms of Chi Kung.

There are several types of Chi Kung and they are all based in the principles of having a straight rooted posture, keeping the spine aligned, being relaxed, focusing on diaphragmatic breathing, flowing with the movements and setting an intention with awareness throughout the practice to harmonize the Qi (Chi) flow in the body and the connection with nature’s energy to balance the organism.

    Before I tried it, I was quite skeptical, but I must confess I loved the Qigong class and I will practice it regularly. I didn’t know Qigong was so complete, like the connection with the emotional states. I found the practice both relaxing and energising. I recommend it!

    I had classes with Natália when she was starting out and it was amazing! I thought she had been teaching for years. Her instructions are very clear and precise and she guided us incredibly through the practice. Thank you Natália 🙂

    Excellent class where we experience practical exercises of this ancient art.

    During the lesson the explanations of the different techniques are excellent for increasing awareness and connection with the body and mind.

    Daily practice promotes numerous benefits at a physical, mental and energetic level.

    I loved to know and I strongly recommend daily practice.

    Thanks to Natália Costa, who taught us so well and guided us with her experience in the art of qigong.
