Qigong: Our Spring Practice
Spring is the season when the energies inside us begin to rise. In the Five Phase paradigm (also called the Five Element Theory), Spring relates to the Wood Phase.
The focus of our springtime practice is on supporting the Liver and Liver Network which includes the gall bladder, muscles, tendons, fascia and eyes. Although our focus is the Liver, the benefits of the practice extend well beyond that organ and beyond ‘the network’.
Most qigong consists of three aspects--movement, breath and the mind--in varying proportions. The practice for this season will include gentle exercises and meditations. Learn about foods that relax and detox the Liver and move Qi (life force). After you’ve learned the components, you can create your own program to fit your schedule and lifestyle.

Kirk Norby graduated from the University of Montana with a Bachelor of Science in Health and Human Performance. He began a regular practice of qigong in 1989, and has studied Medical, Daoist and Buddhist qigong, Daoist meditation, and self-massage from teachers based in and outside the United States.
Since 2015, Kirk has been practicing a system of qigong exercises, meditations and dietary practices that help the body adjust to seasonal changes. He enjoys the flexibility and variety of the program as well as the sense of well-being he experiences after his daily practice and throughout the year.
Kirk’s goal is to support other people who want to discover the benefits of these practices.
