Qi Gong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention.
The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words.
- Qi is pronounced chee and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe.
- The second word, Gong, pronounced gung, means accomplishment, or skill that is cultivated through steady practice. Together, Qigong (Chi Kung) means cultivating energy, it is a system practiced for health maintenance, healing and increasing vitality.
Qi Gong practices allow to learn how to release, to set free, body and mental strains (tensions). The body relaxation has the benefit to release the mind and encourage the well being and the health promotion or betterment or improvement or amelioration. Qi Gong exercises coordinate the mind and the body by involving the concentration in a free state, without searching for performance. Everyone can practice Qi Gong, regardless of ability and age. A regular practice encourage a feeling of well being and health promotion.
LES BOLS CHANTANTS
Singing bowls are made of 99,99 % crystal powder, which has been warmed up 2200° and then be molded. The so acquired bowl is then finalized to get the right note.
Every note played is a vibration, an energy that our body feels.
Human beings are made of cells that are vibrating and the vibrations they perceive, feed them.
Singing bowls have different notes, frequencies that can have an impact of a part of the body or at a particular location.
Singing bowls made in quartz crystal create high sounds that have rather exceptional curative effects. The sounds go into resonance with the human voice, pass through our system and touch up our human essence, so that the deficiencies or weaknesses in the individual person, the conflicts, the divergences, almost immediately turn into harmony.
Qi Gong has found its foundations in Chinese culture through major philosophical currents. Buddhist-influenced Confucianists and Taoists have contributed much to the teaching and practice of Qi Gong with particular emphasis on health preservation and disease prevention.
Qi Gong is an energetic art, its theories can be applied to the martial arts.
Qi Gong is always practiced with an intention.
This one can be different according to its quest of the moment.
When we begin Qi Gong, we first seek to acquire a position, becoming aware of its verticality, connecting its body between heaven and earth. We seek to anchor in the earth while being in contact with the sky.
The awareness of each part of his body will allow to be more attentive to it and to act on it.
The work on breathing will be able to generate a relaxation of the body, which will release the mind.
The work of visualization acts on the body and the mind; it opens the horizon, activates positive energy and feels well-being.
Qi Gong movements are performed to activate or calm the energy in the body and mind.
Qi Gong is practiced most often outdoors in peaceful places in nature to nourish the body and mind of this good energy.
Qi Gong is accessible to all, a regular practice has real benefits for moral and physical health .
The Qi Gong classes taught by Ariane Canler are rigorous, combined with great skill and sensitivity.
I am struck by his ability to welcome and accompany each of his students, from where they are. She knows how to create a space that allows everyone to evolve on their own, without any concern for "performance".
A striking and remarkable element is also her infectious enthusiasm for this discipline, which goes hand in hand with what seems like a constant personal progression, that she knows how to share with her students little by little.

I discovered Qi Gong 5 years ago, thanks to a friend, of Asian origin, who spoke to me about it and made me want to discover it.
I practiced on a regular basis, in classes and internships, feeling an inner appeasement as well as a vitality, a kind of harmony, between my body and my mind on the one hand, between my environment and myself. somewhere else. I had to interrupt this activity, unable to attend classes for professional reasons, while continuing to practice some exercises alone.
As soon as I could, I re-enrolled in the Ariane classes, and I was happy to find Qi Gong with a quality person who inspires self-confidence and benevolence around you. His inner smile radiates outside.
There is always for me this importance of what we feel and what we share with others, its environment is the richness of Qi Gong.

At the time of my retirement, I was looking for gentle gymnastics so that I could keep a little flexibility without causing muscular trauma.
Today, after 3 years of practice, I remain seduced by this thousand-year-old Chinese discipline that combines slow and non-restrictive movements with breathing and concentration exercises which allows to relax the tensions that accumulate over time. It's a real pleasure to rediscover your body and regain some flexibility. A new theme is discussed each year which allows progress and perceive new sensations.
For me this discipline, within reach of all, puts in harmony the mental relaxation by the concentration, the bodily relaxation and the pleasure to move without constraint in a very friendly spirit maintained by the qualities of the group and the teacher.
