QiGong for Vitality and Joy

 

In the Chinese language, QI means "energy" and GONG means "exercise" or "cultivation". About 7000 different forms of QiGong evolved over many centuries, ranging from non-strenuous to quite rigorous, and were often designed for specific health conditions. All parts of our being are exercised and revitalized simply because the energy which gives us life permeates every part of us ~ our physical body, our mind, our spirit. Daily practice of this ancient system of meditation steadily cultivates strength, stamina, clarity of mind, willpower, positive outlook, and movement coordination. Enjoy improved balance, deeper breathing, enhanced healing ability, and better sleep.

 

The practices you will learn are fluid, easy to learn, and considered non-strenuous. The focus on postural and breath awareness is intended to help carry you through every moment of your day. You will learn meditative exercises as well as entire sets of sequential movements.

 

Dress comfortably in layers and sneakers. Please avoid eating for 1 hour prior to your class.
