In this episode, Smitha Murthy talks about how she discovered the ancient Chinese practice of Qigong and how it helped her in her anxiety and emotional wellness.
Qigong is a restorative practice that works in aligning your body’s energy. Smitha shares her experiences in being a pretty robotic individual with some very set practices and how Qigong gently showed her how to go with the flow – both in terms of exercise and life in general.
She didn’t go to a formal class, although you could try formal Qigong classes if you find them online or at a center close to you. Qigong is different from Tai Chi and although there are similarities to yoga, Smitha found Qigong more useful in alleviating her anxiety.
Smitha followed two YouTubers primarily:
#1. Yoqi Yoga and Qigong: This is a free resource for mindfulness in motion, and promises to help you tap into your own source of vitality, healing, and effortless power. You can access the channel through this link
Highly recommended for a quick mood boost is the Qigong Mood Lifter. This video is a quick way to just feel a bit better.
#2. Qigong Meditation: This is a channel created by Thich Man Tue or Brother Insight, who was born in Central Vietnam and is now a Qigong teacher for those at Deer Park Monastery, California. It’s for everyone who loves to practice and experience peace, relaxation, and healing of body and mind.
Smitha recommends the 10 minute Qigong Daily Routine for Anxiety, Stress, and Fear. Watch this video
We hope you try these out!
