Qigong is an ancient Chinese self-care healing art that combines gentle movement, breath, meditation & visualization. It is designed to bring awareness to the more subtle energy systems of the body, balance the mind and awaken the spirit.

In taking the time to slow down and synchronize the breath, movement and the mind we can heighten our ability to to feel more, increase purpose and poignancy in the moment with less distraction, even while life is in motion around us.

The exercises focus on diaphragmatic breathwork, feeling Qi (hands), self acupressure to heal and flowing movements that bring tangible feeling to the term energy. Qigong can clear stagnation in the body, relax muscles or an overactive mind and relieve pain. This practice is a discipline of self awareness that asks practitioners to utilize their own abilities to tap into one’s healing potential and reclaim the power of inner guidance.
