Qigong for Health - Moving Meditation

Saturdays, 10:30 - 11:30pm 
Upcoming Dates: February 29, March 14 & 28
@ Crossroads UMC

We'll practice a simple (but powerful) type of qigong - Spring Forest Qigong. (Say 'chee' like cheese and 'gung' like gungho.)

To benefit from qigong you do not have to be fit, you don't have to be flexible, and you don't even have to be able to stand up. The exercises can be modified for almost anyone with patience who wants to learn.

Sometimes qigong and tai chi are called a moving meditation in which the mind and body are led to a state of balance and equilibrium also known as homeostasis. A Harvard medical publication* says it should also be called "moving medication."

The advantages of improving strength, flexibility and balance are pretty obvious but the advantages of peace that comes from the moving flowing meditative aspect of Qigong and Tai Chi are equally important.
