Qigong is translated as ‘The Art of cultivating Vital Energy’. ‘Qi’ meaning “subtle breath” or “vital energy” and ‘Gong’ meaning “skill” cultivated through steady practice. Dating back thousands of years, it was first documented in Taoist writings/traditions. With its focus on cultivating and maintaining personal health.
With flowing movements, meditations, sounds and visualizations for healing. Qigong does not require special place, clothing or yoga props, mats, bolsters, etc…. This wonderful healing movement meditation incorporates slow-flowing movement with deep rhythmic breathing while maintaining a calm meditative state of mind.
Join me for this 6-week wondrous experience learning the art of cultivating vital energy.
