Eva’s qigong ex­er­cises

In the Moment - - Wellbeing -

CLEANSE THE QI

Start in a wu ji pos­ture (feet about hip dis­tance apart, knees slightly bent and shoul­ders back and down). Ex­tend your arms out to the sides, with palms up, slowly lift­ing your arms and gather­ing the earth qi around you. When your arms reach shoul­der height, bring them in front of you, about shoul­der width apart, gather­ing the sky qi from above. Then, with palms fac­ing the earth, slowly bend the el­bows, bring­ing the energy down in front of you and ‘cleans­ing’ your qi.

10 DRAGONS RUN THROUGH

THE FOR­EST

Place all 10 ngers along your hair­line, then use them to gen­tly rake your scalp, stim­u­lat­ing dozens of therapeutic acupunc­ture points. When your ngers reach your oc­ciput (your neck­line), throw with a ick of the ngers any­thing that isn't serv­ing you to­wards the earth. Imag­ine it is leav­ing you and will be 'com­posted' where it falls. Re­peat this ex­er­cise 12-15 times.
