Qi Gong Levels I and II

with Michael Busby
March 14th – 15th

Qigong is designed to cultivate strength of body and calmness and clarity of mind through Taoist practices that integrate movement, breath, and qi (internal energy). A form of gentle, relaxing exercise, qigong strengthens joints, muscles, tendons, and bones, increases flexibility, stimulates the circulation of energy in our body, and enhances mental clarity.  For persons who have physical challenges, qi gong is an excellent way to gently introduce mobility and relaxation. Benefits of qi gong include the promotion of health and longevity, and it can serve as a synergistic companion to meditation and other contemplative practices.
