Qi gung is the use of repetitive movement coordinated with the breath and the experience of feeling qi (chi, ki) in the body. Classes will include a period of gentle warm up exercises, stretching, and strengthening exercises followed by cool down, meditation, and qi gung. The exercises introduced, qi gung, and meditation originated in various parts of Asia thousands of years ago. At the end of each class we will "go around the circle" to share experiences and allow for questions. Classes are appropriate for people in any physical condition; exercises will be adapted to meet individual needs. Dress in comfortable clothing. Bring a yoga mat or beach towel and water to each class. Although every class will include floor work it is possible to participate while seated in a chair. Students are encouraged to be aware of their individual conditions, and while challenging themselves a bit each should work within their personal capacities. Medical approval is always suggested prior to beginning any program of physical exercise.
