This group is for all levels of students, be prepared to burn more calories than jogging in a Qigong class while standing still and reduce stress. Beginners to Qigong get more hands on training and guidance to assist in proper form, while advanced Qigong students tend to bend their knees deeper, root in and enter into a deeper state of "Bliss". This Qigong class has been formed to bring like minded health conscious people together for Qigong, breathing exercises and moving meditation practice. Qigong is for any age level and level of fitness, no previous experience required. Our youngest Qigong student is 14 years old and our eldest Qigong student is 86 year old and getting younger and stronger each day! Class is usually 45-55 minutes, sometimes we stay longer and move into another form or do Medical Qigong.
Qigong, literally means working with the energy of life or cultivation of energy/qi. Qigong integrates the mind-body healing method using the coordination of breath and gentle movements of the body. Focusing intention and cultivating energy aka "Qi", while practicing allows for the body to increase energy to rebalance itself and function on an optimal level. Learn to cultivate one’s own healing energy, feel a palpable energy field with Qigong practice and quiet the mind. Qigong is gentle, burns calories fast, increases metabolism, circulates blood flow, strengthens the body, mind and spirit practice, creates confidence, empowers & transforms you, all while reducing stress.
There are two instructors for this Qigong group; Lisa K Perdue, and Enrique Diaz.
