Qigong (chi kung) means "the practice/skill of life force energy." It is a 3000+ year old practice of aligning breath, movement, and meditation. Qigong has deeply influenced - and been influenced by - many areas of Chinese culture including Taoism, Buddhism, traditional Chinese medicine, and martial arts. Benefits attributed to Qigong include:
Vitality, Rejuvenation, Longevity
Health, Rehabilitation, Pain management
Memory improvement, Awareness, Intuition
Anti-stress, Happiness, Spiritual transformation
Beginners are welcome! We go through ancient moving meditations that cultivate Qi in the body's energy centers and facilitate its flow through energy meridians. We integrate with Heaven-Qi and Earth-Qi to attain balance and transformation.Sessions end with a seated guided meditation.
