Name : AKASH GHOSH
Years of practice : 2 (since 2016)
HarmonyQi Instructor : Instructor Raymond
Before Qigong :
I am generally healthy with no major health complaints. I did not exercise much, was quite unfit and lack energy. My body usually felt cold, probably due to bad blood circulation.
I was in university when I started qigong, then went into internship and am now working for the same company, in computer programming. I had bad sleeping habits during my uni days, I tended to over-exert myself, staying up until 3 or 4 a.m. to study. As such, my body was lethargic, difficult to get myself started to do anything.
I would feel very flat out tired after work, totally drained of energy, and had to nap for 30 minutes immediately when I reached home.
I had back-ache and stiff shoulders because of bad sitting posture, always slouching and hunched before the computer for long hours.
Immediately after Instructor Raymond’s 1st class, my palms became a healthy red, and my body felt a good warmth, like qi circulating. However, I found it difficult to balance work with qigong practice, hence my practice at the beginning was not consistent during the first few months.
I attended Master’s YoungQi class immediately soon after. I was struggling during Master’s class. My body was not flexible, I had difficulty co-ordinating my movements, and my whole body ached terribly after class. It felt like my body’s internal age was 50+ years. I also did not practise qigong regularly then.
After Qigong :
I learnt EnerQi Beginner in 2017, and began to practise more consistently, 3 to 5 days a week.
I noticed that I was more energetic, my stamina improved. I have gained more muscle, my body is more toned, and I am satisfied with my metabolic rate.
After I learnt YoungQi Intermediate, I learnt how to listen to my body and could sense when my body is unwell. I know how not to over-exert my body, how not to burn myself out.
I find that I have better posture, can sit and stand upright a lot easier without slouching.
After Master’s Advance classes, I have better control over my emotions. I used to have strong emotions like anger and hatred, but I have changed to be more understanding and forgiving. I have a more positive outlook, and am not as easily affected by negative emotions around me. I am more emotionally and mentally stable. I worry less and my constant inner self-questioning has reduced significantly. My relationships with my family members improved. I am now a better communicator, even a peace-maker, instead of being immersed in the emotional turmoil.
Previously, I could not digest seafood, oily food, spicy food. I have spleen problems, causing acid reflux and gaseous burping, but now I can eat normally, but I choose not to over-indulge.
Before qigong, I normally woke up from sleep with blocked nose and stuffy head which bothered me throughout the day, but these have cleared. I expel phlegm 1st thing in the morning, and regularly during the day, and especially during my qigong practice.
I enjoy better quality of life. I am better disciplined with my time, have time to practise qigong regularly and going to sleep by 11 pm. My sleep quality has improved.
I have faith that I will get better as I continue with my qigong practice.
People I wish to thank :
