Thorvaldur Ingi Jonsson (Thor)
Qigong life energy for fitness, health and happiness
Thor has enjoyed the pure Icelandic nature from an early age. He is a business graduate with a master’s degree in management and strategy. For the past 12 years, he has studied, mentored, and taught Qigong. He is one of the authors of the only Icelandic Qigong book.
For over 5,000 years, the Chinese have been practicing Qigong exercises for health and healing. Qi (Chi) is the life force in everything, connected to heaven and earth. The exercises are based on special breathing, movements and meditation. Qigong life energy exercises are especially health-promoting because they open better the body’s energy pathways, release tension and nourish and strengthen every cell in the body. We strengthen the immune system and recover sooner after illness.
Today, Thor, will give a short introduction to Icelandic Qigong exercises and we will do some exercises together. They build inner strength and increase positive emotions. As we have more inner energy and a stronger will, we can give more of ourselves to others. We stand better with all that is good and get everyone with us in “Healing our Earth”
