SUMMER QIGONG (open-style class series)

Qigong for the summer season, especially nourishing for the heart and small intestine. Let us bring ease and peace into our hearts, so we may connect meaningfully with our loved ones.

Qigong is an energy cultivation practice originating from ancient China and one of the five pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Interweaving slow, gentle, intentional movement and periods of stillness, Qigong re-awakens within us the sense of belonging to the natural world. Through relaxing into the present moment, a Qigong practitioner builds soft strength within their body, balances stability and mobility around the joints, and harmonizes any excessive or deficient energies.

The classes are suitable to all body/mind types and all levels of experience (beginners are very welcome). Full permission is given to rest as needed and to practice seated on a chair instead of standing.

The open-style format of this 5-class series means you are welcome to drop in on any of the classes without having attended previous ones. This will allow you to experience a taste of what Qigong has to offer. To receive the benefits of consistent Qigong practice, a commitment to the whole series is recommended.

RECEIVE & RESTORE (open classes)

Having given energy out into the world, what would it feel like to take time for yourself: to receive and restore your energy? Combining Qigong and restorative yoga, Receive & Restore classes provide the space and conditions for such restoration, reorienting the practitioner back towards a natural state of inner calm, harmony, health, and vitality. 

Each class begins with the body in physical stillness, while energy is guided internally with breath, visualization and intention. The body is then invited into gentle movement (if willing) that can be practiced on the ground or seated in a chair. The option to come up to stand is available for those who wish to do so. The last 20 minutes of each class is dedicated to restorative savasana (resting in stillness), to offer the body time to store the cultivated energy.

Classes are suitable to all abilities, all levels of experience, and all body/mind types. They are created to particularly support those experiencing exhaustion, living with a chronic illness, or recovering from illness or depletion.
