Qi gong is a Chinese term often translated as “cultivating energy” or “cultivating skill with energy.” This routine is based on the Five Treasures qi gong series; it has been modified greatly, giving it more of a yoga feel with some lengthening, stretching, and “noodling” around to release tensions.
Mukti teaches qi gong at her meditation retreats to offer balance and energy harmonization, amidst sitting several periods of silent meditation and quiet contemplation each day.
There are two versions of this routine offered here. This one is about 15 minutes and is given in silence, offered for those who know the background instruction. The other one is given with lengthy instruction and brief standing guided meditations. It runs about half an hour and is recommended for new viewers.
