Physical strength is dependent on many factors beyond just muscle size. Focus, endurance, speed and agility are connected to the way energy moves through your body.
In QiGong, strength is part of a larger integrated system involving your body, mind and spirit. Taoist Internal Alchemy practice integrates muscular strength with a calm nervous system, balanced biochemistry, structural integrity, and emotional harmony. When you increase your body's ability to store and direct energy, your physical strength will be grounded in abundant health and internal power.
The first step in building integrated strength is to transform negative emotional energy stored in your body into vital life-force energy, or Chi. The presence of repressed emotion in the body is distracting and depleting, preventing you from connecting with the strength you possess. QiGong exercises give you a practical and enjoyable way to restore your experience of emotional harmony. The guided meditations within these volumes not only develop your ability to concentrate, but allow you to awaken the internal energy circuitry that manages the increased life force available to you..
QiGong training is focused on developing the internal power that lies within each person. This is developed through addressing physical structure, posture, and bone and tendon strength. Equally important, the practices include numerous exercises and tools to stimulate, increase and circulate abundant energy in your body. The strength derived from internal power profoundly benefits not only your body, but your mind and spirit as well.
Taoist Internal Alchemy helps you to maintain your strength throughout the many stages of development within your lifetime. The rejuvenating effect of QiGong on the hormones, cardiovascular and immune systems add to the longevity of your years. Cultivating the energy that supports physical strength, you will enjoy abundant health, happiness, and vitality as you age.
