As an introduction to QiGong, this class will focus on Eight Pieces of Brocade, Muscle Tendon Change, and Fragrance QiGong (or XiangGong). Please wear loose-fitting and comfortable clothing, and bring a mat if you prefer something to stand on - this class includes lots of time standing and the classroom floors are tiled.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) recognizes several pathways (meridians) within the body that direct Qi (vital energy) flow to our organs. A person is believed to become ill when Qi flow becomes blocked which creates an imbalance of the body's vital energy. Health is believed to be restored by eliminating these blockages. As a healing art, Qigong practitioners utilize breath and prescribed movement to foster prevention of any imbalance in the body and to promote self-healing through balancing the body’s energy system, enhancing the innate capacity of the body to heal.
