Qigong Classes – Qigong and Circle Walking
Welcome to our group of qigong and circle walking practitioners. Our class is located at a local community center. We enjoy the benefits of practicing indoors yet in the center of a lovely rural setting next to a natural laguna wetlands.
Qigong For The Seasons
This class performs Chinese energy exercises, known as Qigong, which practices specific exercises according to the seasons of the year. Qigong works to enhance physical fitness, both externally and internally through the cultivation of Qi-Universal Healing Energy. Classes include a variety of exercises, from simple individual movements to walking in circles holding various postures. The theory of Chinese Medicine of the Five Elements provides the underlying principles of qigong. Qigong is beneficial for people of all ages, and all health conditions. Classes are on-going and new students can join us at any time. Register with the teacher in class.
