LECTURE VIDEO: What is Qi? What is Qigong? In this first video we will dive deep into the history, theory and styles of qigong as well as define YOQI in the context of qigong.
  • INTRODUCTION TO AWAKENING AWARENESS

    The foundation of all meditation and qigong practice is awareness. But what is awareness? In this introduction to the practice, Marisa explores the meaning of awareness, why cultivating it will enhance your practice and how to do it.

  • AWAKENING AWARENESS MEDITATION

    The first step in qigong training is to learn how to sense and feel qi. Feeling qi is nothing more than training to sustain bare awareness in the present moment. This guided audio meditation is a training method designed to help you awaken your awareness. Sustaining a balanced and smooth energy flow between relaxation and concentration, unified through awareness is the key to success in this program. I recommend you do this meditation for at least 21 days before moving on to the next internal meditations. By awakening your awareness you will lay a strong foundation to build your qigong practice.

M1.INTRO.1 MAKING A QI BALL TUTORIAL
PRACTICE TUTORIAL: The first step to working with qi is to be able to feel qi. We are all born with the ability to sense and feel energy. Learning how to feel qi will help you to become more sensitive to the frequency patterns in your body and energy field. There are specific places in the body that are sensitive to feel qi. In this practice you will learn the simple technique to activate your qi hands and make a qi ball. This exercise is a common qigong practice taught to beginners by my masters.

M1-INTRO.2 GETTING STARTED
LECTURE VIDEO: The foundation of all dynamic qigong is standing. Standing aligns the body to the Three Forces: heaven, earth and humanity. When we are aligned with heaven and earth, the human body is a conduit of energy. The ability stand effortlessly for long periods of time is a sign of internal progress in qigong. If the body parts are not properly aligned during our practice, energy does not flow properly and can even become stagnant or blocked. Most of the areas where these blockages occur in a beginner’s practice are in and around the joints. In this video you will learn how to stand in Wuji posture by applying the Five Keys to Maximize Qi Flow.
