Yellow River Dance Qigong Lesson Two
Yellow River Dance Qigong Lesson Two. In this lesson, John Platt reviews all 20 movements of the Yellow River Dance. He also introduces the advanced forms of the movements.
The graceful movements of the Yellow River Dance allow us to gather the life-giving energies of nature, the heavens, and earth. The form also borrows from the feeling and movement of wind through the willows and the dancing of butterflies. Early Taoist masters knew the importance of connecting to nature, even in a very visceral, mimicking manner. In doing so, we learn to entrain ourselves to nature’s rhythms, movements, and patterns. From a western scientific perspective, by practicing the Yellow River Dance movements, we begin to accustom the body to operate in a stress-free mode, by engaging in the parasympathetic mode or “relaxation response.”
