Intro to Nei Gong Series

In this training we will focus on some of the foundational practices in the Nei Gong process. We will concentrate on three different forms in order to begin this process. The first form will be Wei Gong, or body warm up exercises. These exercises open the hips, waist, and torso, increase mobility, increase spinal and neck flexibility, and release tension in shoulders.

The next form that we will be working with is Wu Ji. Wu Ji is the foundational standing posture used to help students lower their center of gravity, locate the lower Dan Tien, and begin to activate the energy system in the body.

The third form we will explore in the workshop is the Ji Ben Qi Gong series. Ji Ben Qi Gong helps students establish proper alignments within in the body, and restores proper breathing techniques.

Taken together, the three foundational processes help new students explore their “internal wetsuit,” making it easier to connect to their bodies. The postures help us connect all parts of the body into one cohesive unit and begin moving in a fluid, healthy manner.

It is open to all levels and complete beginners.
