The "Rise and Shine" Qi Gong Session in Detert (Jackson) Park on Saturday morning was the perfect way to start this weekend. A small group of people arrived at the park at 6:30 in the morning looking forward to trying something new. A couple of them have been to my Tai Chi classes before, but we usually only spend a small portion of the Tai Chi classes practicing Qi Gong and at this event....it was all about Qi Gong. :)
The air was cool and crisp, the park was practically empty, and the sun was just rising into the sky when we began. We started by taking a little walk in the park to help get our blood circulating, then we practiced a moving Qi Gong set, took some time to work on stationary Qi Gong focused on breathing, and we topped it off with some very simple and invigorating Qi Gong cool down exercises that left us feeling revitalized, rested, rid of the weeks burdens, and ready to fully enjoy our weekend. :)
After we were done everyone who came told me how much better they felt, how much more alive they felt, and how happy they were that they came. :) Hearing that thrilled me because that was the whole point of this early morning session. If that sounds like a way you want to start your weekend come join us for the next "Rise ans Shine" Qi Gong session. I'll post the time, date and location soon. So stay tuned. :) I hope to see you there.
