Qigong Levels I & II
with David Stone
March 9 / 8:30 AM - March 10 / 6:00 PM
Heal the Body & Quiet the Mind
Cultivate strength of body and calmness of mind through the healing Taoist practice of qigong. This intensive program is a rare opportunity to receive instruction in two unique qigong lineages—the Pre-Celestial Limitless Gate School (Xiantianwujimen) and the Yiquan School.
Qigong Level I
In Level I, we will practice techniques to strengthen the musculoskeletal systems, nourish internal organs, circulate energy, and still the mind.
Qigong Level II
In Level II, we will delve more deeply into postures that cultivate flexibility, strength, and softness in the joints, muscles, and tendons. We will also learn self-massage techniques to support our internal organs and circulate qi, or life energy, through our meridians
There are no prerequisites, however Levels I-II must be taken together. Both program segments must be completed in full. 25% discount for repeats.
Please note: Qigong is inadvisable for pregnant women.
