Qigong (pronounced "Chee Gung") is a powerful ancient Chinese system of self-healing exercise and energy medicine. Through gentle meditative movement and breathing techniques, the practice of qigong supports cardiovascular health and immune system functioning, reduces pain, strengthens joints, and promotes relaxation of the body, calmness of mind, and the balancing of emotions. The ease of qigong makes it appropriate and accessible for people of all ages and levels of fitness. Beginners are welcome!


Together, we will explore the following:

Introduction to Qigong

The Eight Pieces of Brocade, one of the most prominent Qigong forms in the world

Primordial Qigong, an ancient Taoist healing practice

Qigong for enhancing the immune system

Five essential skills for cultivating mind-body regulation in qigong

Principles and practices of mindfulness and mindful movement


Fee: $30 (registration is required)
