When body is relaxed and peaceful, energy will flow. When mind is still, it will embrace qi and strengthen the body. In the Chinese arts of health and longevity, qigong simultaneously cultivates a peaceful body and a peaceful mind. Physical health and mental well-being are closely aligned.
Begin your journey of health and well-being in Qigong 1 by learning six classic qigong techniques that relax the body and two postures of standing qigong that gather internal energy.
Continue in Qigong 2 by learning how to guide energy through the body using the Nine Self-Massage. Complete the program by learning Twelve Devas Tendon Changing – the most effective form of qigong used in repairing physical injuries and enhancing musculo-skeletal strength.
Included in the program are talks by the instructor to orient participants into the practice and commentary to explain the function and benefits of the forms.
There are no requirements. If you wish to get started on improving your physical health and mental well-being, this program is for you.
