What is Qigong?
We like to say that Qigong is a simple practice that delivers profound results.
Qigong is an ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine practice that is the foundation for acupuncture.
Qigong uses simple physical movements, breath work, and guided meditation to promote greater relaxation, sharper focus, and better physical health. The moves are low-impact, simple and adaptable, making Qigong accessible and doable for people of any age and any level of physical health.
How do classes work?
Classes are held online. We meet on Zoom, Monday through Thursday at 8 AM Pacific time. Each class is a half hour long.
Classes are interactive. Participants have the chance to ask questions via chat at anytime during class. Many times we are able to pivot on the fly to help you with issues you’re experiencing now.
Every class is fun and different. And even though participants are not all in the same room, there’s a positive energy and vibe that is created when everyone joins in together from different parts of the country and world.
Practice anytime. Recordings are available for up one week after each class, so your employees can join in whenever it suits their schedules.
New classes will be added in as time goes on. Enjoy Qi Revitalizer with Chris, Stretch and release with Parisa, and others by our certified teachers and guest instructors.
