Chanelle’s Qi Gong discovery
My first experience with Qi Gong was in 1997 on a trip to Austin, Texas.
One morning I got invited to do Qi Gong right on the grass in front of Lady Bird Lake. At the time, I was an active yoga student and had practiced some Tai Chi as well, but nothing before would compare to the unique experience I felt that day with just one session of Qi Gong. Within minutes of doing Qi Gong breathing I felt as if I was floating. I dropped into the deepest meditation so freely and with ease; something I had struggled with in yoga. It was one of the most powerful sensations, to date, that I have ever come to feel.
At that time I had no idea I would pursue a career in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture but I resonated on a very deep level with the movements and breathing of Qi Gong.
A few years later, after being accepted to Acupuncture School (and only having had that ONE experience with Qi Gong) I knew I wanted to incorporate Qi Gong healing into my lifelong practice. Within the first week of school I presented a paper on the benefits of Qi Gong and how to incorporate this into an Acupuncture practice. From that moment on, I sought out teachers and have been studying Qi Gong actively since 2001.
Once I started my own Acupuncture practice, I began to see an incredible need for the practice of Qi Gong and I went on to get certified to teach. I feel like I am just at the beginning of my lifelong love and devotion for Qi ong and the power that it has revealed to me in so many forms. I hope you will come experience this beautiful art form with me sometime. Let’s get together and press on the qi and allow it to overwhelm our senses and restore health in our bodies.
