Qigong

What is Qigong

Qigong is an ancient healing art that combines gentle movement, deep breathing and meditation. This Chinese exercise system helps reduce stress, improve immune function, strengthens internal organs, and calms the mind to promote improved health, vitality and youthfulness. Through the integration of posture, body movements, breathing, and focused intention, this mind-body practice enhances vitality and calmness to reduce stress levels.

Participants will learn simple Qigong movements to be used as part of creating a healing environment and aid in relaxation and centering, to increase flexibility, balance, and body awareness. The movements are accessible to all levels and encourage participants to incorporate Qigong into an integrative wellness maintenance program at home and office to facilitate physical, emotional and spiritual benefits for their own self-care, to help with their professional and personal resilience at home, work and in their community.
