A number of years ago I was thinking about trying Tai Chi, yet I didn’t end up taking the next step. Since that time, there have been moments when it has crossed my mind, and a little while ago, I spoke to someone who did Qigong.

They told me that it was good for grounding, amongst others things, but I didn’t take the time to look into it. This all changed the other day when Qigong came to my mind, causing me to look into where I could take a class close by.

The Time Had Come

I soon found somewhere online where I could learn Qigong and it wasn’t very far away from me. When I got here, it was clear that the instructor had been doing this for quite some time.

It was as though their body was rooted to the ground; this came across in how they stood, their posture, and how they moved. I wrote an article a while ago about human beings being tress that move, and this person was like a tree that moved.

No Expectations

I didn’t know anything about Qigong, so I had no idea about what I would be doing, and I didn’t have any worries or concerns either. I wanted to get started and to see what it was all about.

We ended up doing different exercises, exercises where we had to focus on our breathing, posture, and to move our body in a certain way. During one part of the class, we ended up doing a movement that was very similar to the moves that were in the Matrix film.

An Easy Process

There were certain movements that took me longer to learn than others, but there wasn’t anything that was extremely difficult to do. Now, I say this not to make out that I’m a really fast learner or anything; I say it to illustrate that Qigong is something that just about anyone can learn.

Naturally, there is a big difference between learning a movement and mastering it, but there is no reason why anyone should see Qigong as something that would be too hard for them. And, as there are so many benefits to it, it is a good thing that it is not too hard to learn.

A Common Challenge

If someone has experienced trauma or just lives in a society that is reliant on technology, it can be normal for them to disconnect from their body and to live in their mind. As a result of this, Qigong can be used to bring them back into their body and to connect to themselves.

This will take place in part by releasing blocked energy, breathing in the right way, and strengthening their nervous system. More information about the benefits of Qigong can be found online.

Final Thoughts

So, if you find it hard to feel connected to your body and or just have a stressful life, you may find Qigong to be beneficial. Give it a go and see how you get on with it.
