Spring Qi Gong

nourishing the liver

Through these Qi Gong practices, we will learn how to calm our mind & our Hun (the Spirit of the Liver) in addition to nourishing the Liver Qi with the right direction of flow.

Here we are learning how to take all that Qi we cultivated and protected during Winter Qi Gong, and give it a free flow of direction. During the Spring, Qi is moving upwards and out; we can see this in Nature, through the early blooming of Daffodils and the delicious sap rising in the Birch and Maples.

The techniques we will be learning consist of: Celestial Rise and Fall, Spinal Cord Breathing, Press Back to Banish All Illnesses, Shooting the Bow, and Enhancing Liver Qi.

If you’d like to join the class, please call (434) 234-3827 or email info@halosaltspa.com to reserve a spot. (8 people max)

In Chinese medicine, it’s believed that disease and illness began when we deviated our lives from living in harmony with nature. This has evolved over time with technology, housing, and modern medicine.

When Liver Qi is depleted, constrained, or not moving in the right direction, we may experience things such as: short tempers, irritability, not being able to let go and move on, not allowing to see other points of views or evolve, red eyes, tight and sore sinews, and much more.
