Qigong for Osteoporosis Workshop at Sabita Holistic Center
3519 Post Road, Southport, Connecticut 06890 United States
Got Strong Bones?
Traditional Chinese Medicine looks at two main factors as main causes of osteoporosis: Qi (energy) deficiency of the kidneys and imbalance between the spleen and stomach. This workshop will focus on how to strengthen bones & muscles through the practice of Qigong and Tai Chi. Regular practice has been shown to improve one's bone density as well as one's balance.
What the Workshop Includes:
• Hour-long standing practice of specific forms that work to strengthen bones and muscles including proper postural alignment of the spine, the Bear & Deer Animal Frolics, as well as different Qigong walking forms to strengthen the legs, hips and back.
• Meditations to cleanse the body of impure Qi and cultivate new, vital energy.
• Healing sounds to strengthen organs in particular the kidneys. According to TCM the kidneys are responsible for bone growth, in particular the formation of bone marrow.
• Informative Handouts.
The workshop is 1.5 hours in length, beginning with discussion, followed by an hour standing practice and ending with a Qigong meditation focusing on bone & kidney health.
