Join me in this brand new space for an eight-week introduction into one of the most popular forms of qigong!
Pronounced chee - kung, this is a beloved form of movement practiced in China and other Asian countries for centuries.
While there are many forms of qigong - some intended for martial arts training and spiritual enlightenment - there are others, such as the “Eight Pieces of Brocade’ that are practiced for health maintenance.
Brocade is a heavy, luxurious cloth, and is used here to describe the silken quality of the movements, and the protection (immunity) which it is believed to impart.
In this 8-week session, I will guide you through the series of movements, using each week to introduce a new concept - not only to help deepen your experiences of qigong, but also to bring applicable practices of energy management into your daily life.
No prior experience is necessary. All the movements are in a standing position, and are appropriate for most any age or ability, though modifications will be suggested for joint replacements or other potential limitations.
