”Qi gong is a Chinese health system which activates and creates fluidity in the lymphatic system. This means that you achieve a very, very strong body, which becomes less receptive to illnesses and your immune system is strengthened,” says our Personal Trainer Mikael Steinhausen.
Mikael Steinhausen has a background as a gymnast and has practiced kick-boxing at competition level for years. He has practiced a lot of hatha yoga and has always made sure to exercise his body and take inspiration from different training systems; systems which he combines when he teaches.
He was so impressed by a Body-sds-session in 2010 that he chose to complete the three year therapist training and one of his specialties as an Instructor is qi gong.
He explains,” You make gentle movements and static exercises which follow your breathing and small strokes, especially on the chest, in order to cleanse your organs.“
”Qi gong is for everybody”
Qi gong originates from the 4,000 year-old Chinese health tradition. “Qi” means “energy” or “breath”, while “Gong” means “cultivating”. The practitioners develop their physical condition as well as their mental balance. The exercises are partly breathing exercises, as the lungs are considered the centre for “Qi”, partly easy gymnastic exercises.
Different versions of qi gong, of which the most famous is probably tai chi, are practiced by millions of Chinese people every day in the early mornings in public parks and similar places.
Mikael Steinhausen elaborates: “Qi gong is for everybody – young or old, female or male – who want to achieve a strong body, become less receptive to illnesses and strengthen their immune system.”
