Qi Gong and Yoga

Qi Gong Exercise for Health and Vitality

Wednesday and Friday at 8am


If you are looking for a shift towards better health and a pain-free life, Qi Gong practice is where to begin. Qi Gong (pronounced chee gung) means exercising Qi, the life-force energy present in every aspect of life. We practice simple slow/controlled movement and visualization to achieve a moving meditative state that cultivates strength, normal range of motion, flexibility, focus, and smooth flow of Qi. Qi Gong in the energetic foundation for all martial arts and most closely resembles Tai Chi. This restorative and energizing exercise is great for all ages and abilities, and especially beneficial to those over 60. Bring water and wear comfortable clothing to move in.
