Qigong is for better health, mobility, a clear mind, and more vitality. In this class, we will integrate rhythmic breathing, gentle and dynamic stretches, postures, flows, and meditation. Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention. The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital energy that flows through all things in the universe. The second word, Gong, pronounced gung, means accomplishment, or skill that is cultivated through steady practice. Together, Qigong (Chi Kung) means cultivating energy, it is a system practiced for health maintenance, healing and increasing vitality. Wear comfortable clothes and bring a yoga mat. This is a barefoot class, but comfortable shoes can be worn.
