This class is intended as an introductory class for those who are new to Qigong and/or for those who have some experience with qigong and would like to further cultivate their practice in a group class. Students will learn foundational qigong moves that within themselves provide a complete practice and which can also be incorporated as part of a “form”. As we gain experience with the basic movements and alignment we will gradually move into learning Qigong forms from the Jinjing Gong Lineage.
What is Qigong?
Qigong (chee-gong), translated as “to work with vital life energy,” refers to Chinese therapeutic exercises used for thousands of years as powerful promoters of physical health, emotional well-being, intellectual clarity and spiritual development.
Our classes are based on “forms” passed down through the Jinjing Gong (tendon and channel qigong) tradition, an ancient healing lineage which combines specific movements with focused breath, sound and visualization to reestablish harmony and health at all levels of being.
