Qi Gong literally means “energy cultivation.” In the practice of Qi Gong we cultivate how we use our own innate energy, our Qi, Prana, or Life Force, which in turn will enhance our health on all levels. The exercises are highly intentional, and through intention and breath we are able to manipulate the various subtle energies of the body, mind, and spirit. Anyone at any age can practice Qi Gong regardless of their limitations whether mental or physical. This class is open to new and/or experienced practitioners. Tao Yin exercises will also be introduced along with each class ending with a guided meditation.
