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.

Shifu Michael wrote a special book for new qigong students to learn basic qigong exercises but also to learn the theory behind qigong practices. This book is strongly encouraged for students new to qigong.  Qigong: A Beginners To Advanced Guidebook
