Thursday Morning Meditation and Qigong Practice
Start your day with balance, flow and connection. Join us on Thursdays from 8-9 am for meditative Qigong practice. The focus of each class is on accessing the Qigong State of Presence in which our body, breath and mind harmonize. This class is for beginning and intermediate students, for all ages and abilities. The gentle exercises are guided and can be modified for those who prefer to sit rather than stand. This class is taught by Estrelita Pondoc, aka Lita. Lita has been practicing Qigong since 2011, currently earning a 200 hour certificate from The Qigong and Daoist Training Center in Sebastopol, California. Please RSVP for the class as it is the best way to ensure you are up-to-date with the schedule, should it change. Payment: The class is offered on a donation-basis: sliding scale $5-20 with a recommended donation of $10 per class. Please place your cash or check donation into the wooden dropbox on the wall behind the door. What to Wear: Please wear loose and comfortably fitting clothing that you can move and stretch in. Let's cultivate and circulate our qi together! Happy Qi Gong! Lita

What we're about

We are a friendly and open group of people dedicated to cultivating wellness, vitality, and spiritual fulfilment. We offer beginner classes in Qigong (pronounced "chee-kung"), Tai Chi, and Meditation. Tea is served during the mid-class break. Basic instruction is provided and practitioners of all experience levels are welcome. The class is offered on a donation basis (sliding scale $5-20 with a recommended donation of $10 per class). No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

The style of Tai Chi that we practice is Roger Jahnke's Tai Chi Easy, a simple 5-movement form that can be done sitting, standing, or walking. In addition, we teach Integral Tai Chi, which adds 4 more movements to Tai Chi Easy to make a 9-movement form. These forms contain the essential power of Tai Chi in a simple to learn form. If you have wanted to learn Tai Chi but have struggled with longer 24, 36, 52, or 108-form styles, then Tai Chi Easy might just be what you are looking for.

Each of the teachers also offers private lessons for those who want customized support and/or who want to explore and practice the "inner" forms of Qigong and Tai Chi. These more advanced forms are only taught in private lessons. If you are interested, inquire directly with the teachers.
