An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until June 21, 2018
Meridian & Medical Qigong, Yoga, Meditation
led by Carol Z, CMQ, RYT, MPA, Certified Qigong & Therapeutic Yoga Instructor
Qigong (Chi Kung) is a practice of meditative & gentle, yet powerful, flowing vitality & longevity movements for all ages which blends well with Yin & Gentle Yoga for optimum deep tissue & bone health, and for calming the nervous system and bringing clarity to the mind.
This practice of Medical & Taoist Qigong includes Elixir Light & White Crane forms, along with Yi Jin Jing, to balance the planetary chakra & organ meridian systems, while improving flexibility, strength, coordination & inner harmony. The practice also prevents or reduces normal (aging) tissue buildup in knees, hips, wrists, shoulders & the entire spine and has proven beneficial for stress release, fatigue, stiffness, cardio & bone health.
The class will focus on Qigong movements and include 20 minutes of Yin and Gentle Yoga, ending with a Restorative Yoga guided meditation. Qigong & Yin Yoga blend well together to strengthen deeper yin fascia of the joints, ligaments, tendons & bones, including hips, pelvis & spine, along with toning & aligning the yang nature of the muscles. Along with Gentle & Restorative Yoga, Qigong is a nurturing practice for anyone, including those recovering from injury, surgery or illness. This practice increases pranic flow, restoring wholeness to mind, body & spirit.
Qigong exercises can be done standing or seated for your comfort. No qigong or yoga experience necessary. All levels welcome. Please wear comfortable clothing.
Dates & Time:
Thursdays 6/7, 6/14, 6/21, 6 – 7 pm. $15 per class. Please pay instructor directly prior to class.
