Start your day with balance, flow and connection. Join us on Thursdays from 8-9 am for meditative Qigong practice. We start the class in a short seated meditation-- feel free to arrive at 7:45 am if you want a longer sit-- and then we come to standing for whole body movements.
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 Nicole Stone, creator of Joyful Movement Qigong. Nicole has been practicing Qigong since 2011, earning a 300 hour certificate from The Qigong and Daoist Training Center in 2015. She holds a Master's degree in Education and Double Bachelor's degree in Dance and Religion. Nicole is currently studying Medical Qigong Therapy, a hands-on approach to healing at Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley.
