Qigong for Health and Energy

Dear  Friends,

For the past month and a half I have been dutifully performing Chinese "Qigong" exercises, which are designed to increase strength and energy without putting strain on the body. I must say that I didn't notice much at first, but after having kept up with it, I am starting to notice more balance and ability to de-stress during the day. 

The following videos are the ones that I most often use, depending on how much time I have before the resident toddler grabs my legs and wants me to pick him up! I invite you to try it for yourself, and see how you feel after a few weeks.



p.s. The following is Tasha's take on Qigong~ :)

Embrace the tiger, return to the mountain.
Slap, slap, slap, slap, slap.
Deep inhale, pause, exhale.
The dragon goes to the sun, the dragon goes to the moon.
Qi ball.
Simply joyful jumps.
Knock on those gates of life!
Good? Good.

Happy Birthday to Hyrum

 Dear Friends,

A certain little boy we know turned 2 the other day. He was feeling under the weather, but still enjoyed all the fun of opening presents and blowing out candles! How the time has flown since he surprised us by being born three weeks before he was expected.
