Kindful Chi Gong
My Chi Gong is a sort of home-grown hybrid based on the 18-stance version taught during the three years of my Shiatsu training mixed with Kindfulness* exercises that I've learnt 'along the way'.
My Shiatsu teacher, Chris Jarmey, described Chi Gong as 'practices that encourage Chi (that's body energy) development and harmony within the body'.
My focus is to develop a simple home routine of gentle stretching and 'opening' exercises which can be done standing or sitting.
Kindfulness helps us be 'in the now', letting go of stressful worries both past and future. Together they develop 'calm body' and 'calm mind'. Harmony!
I enjoyed leading the AsphasiaNow members very much; they are especially welcoming, and always willing to try even the more expansive movements.
Each Shiatsu movement has a name; with a few, I included an audio to help with visualisation – they particularly liked the honks of 'flying with the wild geese'!
*Kindfulness is similar to Mindfulness, being in ‘the present’, though with a focus on being kind, especially to oneself.
