Chi Kung For High-Level Wellness

Experience this 4,000-year-old Chinese system of movements, postures, stretches, breathing exercises and meditations. Chi Kung (Qigong) is one of the foundations of Chinese medicine. It inspired Western calisthenics and is the mother discipline of thousands of Chinese non-martial and martial arts forms, including Tai Chi.

 

This weekly class explores the purpose of Chi Kung, which is to generate, circulate and balance Qi (translated as vital energy or life force). Learn multiple forms of Chi Kung, including 18 Style, Mt. Hua 6 Healing Sounds, Seasonal Chi Kung and 8 Brocades. Chi Kung exercises may offer enriched relaxation, strength, balance, flexibility, pain reduction and improved mood. This course is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels, and these forms can be practiced while standing or seated.
