No previous experience necessary. Qigong, an ancient Chinese healing and spiritual tradition, is known for its ability to improve Qi and blood circulation and strengthen the immune and nervous systems.
Walking is a special art in Qigong and has been utilized for healing and life preservation in various Qigong lineages for centuries. Walking qigong promotes balance, flexibility, strength and health, and nourishes our body and mind through the combined benefits of movement, meditation and breathing. Join us for this special first time offering of gentle and graceful qigong walking practices from various traditions: the Swimming Dragon family Walking Qigong, Dragon and Tiger Walking from Qin Quan, as well as Zen walking kinhin.
