Douglas to teach ancient Chinese healing art

By Staff | Mar 18, 2010

Busaba Yip Douglas will teach Qigong — an ancient Chinese self-healing art that combines movement and meditation.

LAHAINA — Qigong practitioner Busaba Yip-Douglas will share the benefits of Qigong practices and lead participants through the movements at the Wo Hing Museum on Friday, March 19, at 6 p.m. All are welcome to join in the teachings of this ancient healing art.

Qigong is a holistic and gentle form of physical exercise for self-health and vitality. It is also a meditation and breathing exercise to relax the mind.

The practice of Qigong has been linked to body/mind detoxification; improved circulation, vision, hearing and immune function; reduced stress; and delay in the aging process.

She will also discuss Meridian Qigong — a traditional system of improving and maintaining health through gentle exercises that focus the mind together with breathing.

The basic technique will improve circulation and relieve pain and tension.

These exercises require very little effort and can easily be done by almost anyone.

This class is sponsored by Lahaina Restoration Foundation. The foundation operates four museums in Lahaina, maintains public areas within the Lahaina Historic Districts and oversees a collection of records and archives representative of Lahaina’s rich history.
