Qi Gong prevention course according to §20 SGB

Qi Gong loosely translated means energy exercise and its roots go back more than 2000 years. Even then, it was recognized in Chinese medicine that certain harmonious sequences of movements and breathing exercises can be used sensibly to heal organ, muscle and joint diseases. The word contains Qi, the life energy, and Gong, which means practicing intensely. So it is about movement exercises that influence the Qi. All always combine movement (internal and external), breathing and spiritual concentration (meditation). With the exercises, the individual meridians are activated so that the Qi can flow again. Whereby the stability of the body base is emphasized (Yin is the root of Yang, Yin below, Yang above). Ideally, people should be firm and rooted at the bottom, light and relaxed at the top. Qi Gong can basically be learned by anyone, ideally practiced daily, but never with reluctance.

You can practice at any time of the day, with sunrise and sunset being the best times (Yin and Yang in harmony). One should neither practice with a stomach that is too full nor with a completely empty stomach, otherwise the mental concentration is disturbed. Terms from Qi Gong: - Dantian: storage locations of Qi (e.g. front Dantian = navel area) - Laogong: Dantian in the middle of the hand (Palace of Work) - Mingmeng: rear Dantian in the area of ​​the 2nd and 3rd lumbar vertebrae (life gate) - Yongquan: Dantian in the sole of the foot, in the front ball of the foot (bubbling spring) Relaxation and concentration on the exercise: If you want to practice Qi Gong effectively, you have to relax first. Relaxation is the first step to intuitive wisdom. As such, even if one has no interest in intuitive wisdom, the ability to relax is useful. Those who can relax can prevent many health and other problems or even alleviate corresponding complaints. Relaxation is an essential element of Qi Gong practice. Most Qi Gong exercises, which are extremely effective, are performed in a state of relaxation.
