with CarolAnn Barrows
Qigong is the ancient art and science of gathering, circulating, balancing and storing Body/Mind/Spirit energy which is available from within oneself and all of nature.
The practice of Qigong is at least 4,000 years old and is the root of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The on-going practice of Qigong has been clinically shown to strengthen the body, repair and regulate the central nervous system, eliminate disease, improve mental capacity and prolong life.
Although the non-strenuous movements resemble those of T’ai Chi, Qigong consists of shorter sequences which are easy to learn and practice. Qigong is a beneficial and accessible practice for all persons, regardless of physical condition.
Combining deep breathing, slow movements and meditation, Qigong begins by affecting the function of the autonomic nervous system and goes on to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
This 6 Week Series will give you a strong foundation to practice Qigong. You will leave each class feeling calm, balanced and invigorated!
