Qigong is an ancient practice which shapes, supports, and maintains the intelligent flow of our internal “Qi,” or energy through mindful motion & breath. It provides the experience of fully inhabiting our bodies with presence and skill, while optimizing the functioning of our internal organ systems. We have two types of Qigong classes:
Qigong Foundations: Classes focus on simple, yet powerful Qigong movement & breathing exercises which develop sophisticated body awareness and overall physical confidence. Students are guided to develop a deep understanding of the causes of daily physical discomforts and how to unwind them by experiencing the impact of “Qi” within the body, when it is in alignment, both physically and intellectually.
Dynamic Qigong: Classes focus on dynamic Qigong motions which build awareness of and strengthen our body’s energy center, “Dantien,” while releasing habitual tension in the lower body. Classes are effective for adjusting the posture and motion habits which cause stagnations in the abdomen, lower back, hips, knees, legs, and feet. Classes close with light floor stretching.
All levels welcome!
