MEDICAL QI GONG WORKSHOP

During the Congress there will be the opportunity to participate in practical workshop of Medical Qi Gong, holding by Barbarę Czarnecką.

Medical Qi Gong will be organized every day morning (7:30-8:15 AM) in Hotel Europejski (in Ball Room).

Qì Gōng 气功, literally “life energy cultivation”, is a series of energizing exercises, which are part of the treatment methods used in Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Qì Gōng has been around in China for about 3,000 years. It has been documented that in ancient times, during the cold and rainy seasons, people who suffered from what we now call rheumatoid arthritis were able to fight off joint pain caused by this condition with special dance-like movements or routines. They warmed up the tendons and muscles thus promoting the flow of Qì and blood. Traditional Doctors commenced to observe and refine these movements, and due to their great efficiency they grew very popular among the people.

Many types of Qì Gōng emerged, among them this medical form, which moves the 12 channels of acupuncture in our body. However, all forms of Qì Gōng share the same philosophy, the same 3 key principles we should bare in mind when exercising:
1. consciousness
2. breath
3. accurate movement

Qì Gōng is now very popular worldwide, and thousands of people enjoy these exercises as a way of preventing disease, ensuring longevity and calming the mind.

During classes we will practice:

  • 8 Brocades Qi Gong
  • Classical Tai Chi Qi Gong
