Ongoing Weekly Qigong Practices
In these ongoing qigong classes, you will learn and practice classical movement forms that center and align body and mind, stretch the body to open the channels of energy, and expand and harmonize the breath to create overall balance and vitality. These practices establish a healthy pattern in the nervous system that reduces stress and helps us stay centered in the midst of outer turmoil.
In January and February, we are teaching forms from the Jin Jing Gong lineage of qigong. These are short, four-movement forms that emphasize stretching the tendons to open the body. A standing meditation, Universe Stance, is integrated between each movement, which invites us to experience our wholeness with life. These qigong movements teach our bodies to balance rest and activity, or yin and yang. This is an antidote to fight or flight tendencies in the nervous system and a method to regain center and alignment.
