Qigong & Guided Meditation

PURCHASE CLASS PASSES

Tuesdays, 11:20am – Noon

Qigong means “energy work” or “cultivation of life energy.” Qigong is a series of slow, meditative, flowing motions along with gentle shaking, tapping and knocking on the body to circulate blood, lymph, and vital energy. Research demonstrates the effectiveness of qigong in improving physical coordination and balance, mental focus and cognitive health, bone density, joint stability and mobility, and cardiopulmonary health. Practice of qigong activates the body’s relaxation response, balances the nervous system, increases self-awareness and self-compassion, and reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression. This class includes 30-minutes of Qigong followed by 15 minutes of gently guided meditation. Each week alternates between seated, walking, and lying-down meditation.
