Qigong

Hi Beautiful people!

I am Ekaterina, a certified Level 1 Qigong Instructor, a member of the Irish Health Qigong Association and a member of the International Tai chi and Qigong Federation ITQF.

I discovered Qigong for myself during the Covid time when all of us were looking for the wellbeing support. Having been practicing yoga for five years by that time and completed several mindfulness courses, I was exploring various ways of healing your body, mind and spirit in a holistic way.

I discovered the book “Shaolin: You don’t have to fight to win” by Bernhard Moestl. Non-fighting means including qigong and tai chi have become a revelation for me.  These ancient healing practices discourage fighting and showing the value of the natural rhythm of life staying in harmony and peace with yourself.

I was practicing qigong, tai chi and kung fu, and have found qigong the most gentle practice out of these three. Being a holistic practice, qigong movements affect particular body organs and meridians. It is suitable almost for all ages and almost any physical condition, and can be done also seated.

It is viewed as practice to cultivate and balance qi energy or “life energy”.  Qi is translated as “air, breath, life energy” and gong (or kung) is translated as “practice, skill, mastery, achievement”. Qi’ ‘Gong’ combined together mean practice to cultivate and balance your energy for health and wellbeing.

In my classes we are combining breathing and physical exercises, directing your energy in its natural harmonious flow. Some of Qigong movements imitate animals or nature, for example, bird flying, or a tiger posture. It is fun and it is something different.

I look forward to seeing you in my classes!

Warm wishes,

Ekaterina

Welcome to my classes of Healing Dancing Qigong happening at the Mind the Step studio in Dublin every Saturday at 12pm – 1pm. The address is 24 Strand Street Great, North City, Dublin. You can book online here: Booking Details

My classes have a therapeutical healing effect on your mind, body and energy, by allowing a holistic experience of mindfulness, qigong and dancing to become a transformational creative force for you. 

What have you heard about Qigong? Qigong is an ancient Chinese breathing energy practice consisting of slow gentle movements and meditation. There are different types of Qigong, and I am teaching health Qi Gong that is meant for healing, maintaining inner balance and inner peace, strengthening immune system. Qigong practice is also called Meditation in motion that involves slow-flowing movements, deep breathing and a calm meditative state of mind. With roots in Chinese medicine and martial arts, Qigong is viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance Qi energy, the life-energy.

Qi means air, breath, ‘vital energy’. Gong means skill, mastery, achievement, service, accomplishment. Qi + Gong combined together are meant to cultivate and balance life energy for your health and wellbeing.

Healing Dancing Qigong is a beautiful combination of flowing qigong movements in harmony with music, which invites you to discover the potential of your body to open up to new experience, connecting deeper to your inner self, listening to yourself and loving yourself for who you are. Through natural breathing into each of your movement you will allow your energy to flow and bring love and care to the parts of yourself which need more attention right now. Qigong in dancing is in itself healing. Dancing is healing. Breathing is healing. 

The classes take place in Mind The Step studio in Dublin 1 on Saturdays 12pm – 1pm. 

The benefits of the healing dancing qigong practice:

  • Coming down the nervous system
  • Stronger emotional regulation
  • Becoming more gentle, loving and kind to yourself
  • Making self-care as your big priority
  • Coming to a deeper sense of stability and balance
  • Harmonising your hormonal and 
  • Allowing your inner beauty to unleash itself 
  • Experiencing a deeper connection to yourself 
  • Allowing your creativity and self-expression to unlock

Learning to love your body, connecting deeper to it, feeling and sensing it on a more subtle level brings you closer to a sense of inner wholeness, peace and harmony within yourself.

Music has a healing soothening effect on the body and mind, and moving your body in synchrony with music, and breathing into each of your movement allows you to connect with your deeper self and feel the parts of yourself which may need more love, care and attention.

About Ekaterina: I am a certified Level 1 Qigong Instructor, a member of the Irish Health Qigong Association and a member of the International Tai chi and Qigong Federation ITQF.

I have been practicing qigong for 5 years and teaching for 2 years. 

In the book “Shaolin: You don’t have to fight to win” by Bernhard Moestl I discovered non-fighting means including qigong and tai chi which have become a revelation for me.  These ancient healing practices actually discourage fighting and showing the value of the natural rhythm of life staying in harmony and peace with yourself.

You are so much welcome to learn more about qigong and mindful dancing! I am wishing you health, kindness and love in the heart!

With all my love,

Ekaterina

Healing is a Choice

Healing Qigong with Ekaterina

Welcome to the Healing Qigong workshop happening on the 9th of March at 11am – 1pm in the Mind the Step studio in Dublin. The address is 24 Strand Street Great, North City, Dublin. You can find the booking details here: Healing Qigong – Booking Details

It is a nourishing beautiful time to support your health and wellbeing through ancient Chinese health practices of

  • Longevity breathing also called Taoist breathing,
  • Grounding meditation,
  • Traditional Qigong,
  • Healing dancing qigong,
  • Healing sounds,
  • Chanting,
  • Poetry 

During the workshop we will talk about the benefits of the holistic practices, including meditation and qigong, their effect on the body, mind and our energetic level and what helps maintain this level of inner balance and peace, remaining emotionally stable and being aware of the emotions, feelings, sensations, allowing them to be, living them through.

The workshop will also include meditation through art that helps awaken your creative parts of the brain and bring bigger clarity and peace to yourself. All of these practices are nourishing, therapeutic and healing.

The beginning of March is a very special time of the year when we are celebrating the International Women’s day, and some of the practices will be meant particular to support your feminine health and wellbeing, harmonising your feminine energy, allowing yourself to simply be. The workshop is highly valuable for ladies as well as for men as beautiful feminine energy is flowing in each of us and it is for us to discover, welcome and nourish it within ourselves.

The workshop includes breathing practice from Qigong called longevity breathing or Taoist breathing. The nature of Taoist breathing is to get everything inside your body moving in synch to the rhythm of your breathing, that makes the inside of your body fully alive, joyful and healthy, It cultivates the ability to relax and concentrate on what you are doing without being distracted. Longevity or Taoist breathing helps create and stabilize a strong, steady breathing pattern that will mitigate emotional swings. It allows the nervous system to relax, making your thoughts smoother and more comfortable.

The main part of the workshop is devoted to the practice of healing qigong. I am a certified Qigong Level 1 Instructor, the member of the Irish Tai chi and Qigong Association, and the member of the International Tai chi and Qigong Federation with my personal qigong practice of 5 years and teaching Qigong and meditation practices for 2.5 years.

Qi means air, breath, ‘vital energy’. Gong means skill, mastery, achievement, service, accomplishment. Qi + Gong combined together are meant to cultivate and balance life energy for your health and wellbeing.

Some of the qigong practice will be with music in the dance. Music has a soothening effect on the body and mind, and moving your body in synchrony with music, and breathing into each of your movement allows you to connect with your deeper self and feel the parts of yourself which may need more love, care and attention. It is a beautiful combination of qigong movements, breathing practice and graceful dancing movements which open space of creativity and freedom within yourself, allowing yourself to be present in your own body right here, right now, sensing it, feeling it, accepting and loving it the way it is.

These practices in combination with healing sounds, poetry and chanting will create a healing and nourishing space for gentle exploration of yourself and the world around you.

The event is happening on the 9th of March at 11am – 1pm in Mind The Step studio in Dublin at the address 24 Strand Street Great. Please see the booking details below.

You are so much welcome! Looking forward to seeing you there soon.

Lots of Love
