Heal the Body & Quiet the Mind

Cultivate strength of body and calmness of mind through the healing Taoist practice of qigong. This intensive program is a rare opportunity to receive instruction in two unique qigong lineages—the Pre-Celestial Limitless Gate School (Xiantianwujimen) and the Yiquan School.

Qigong Level I

In Level I, we will practice techniques to strengthen the musculoskeletal systems, nourish internal organs, circulate energy, and still the mind.

Qigong Level II

In Level II, we will delve more deeply into postures that cultivate flexibility, strength, and softness in the joints, muscles, and tendons. We will also learn self-massage techniques to support our internal organs and circulate qi, or life energy, through our meridians

(Levels I-II must be taken together. Levels III-V may be taken separately but sequentially. All program segments must be comploeted in full. 50% discount for repeats.)

Please note: Qigong is inadvisable for pregnant women.
