CLASS Descriptions

All classes are suitable for all levels of practitioners. If you need to modify your practice in any way, I am fully capable of offering you modifications.

5 Element Qigong (60 min.)

The Five Elements of Chinese Medicine theory set the stage for our Qigong practice. Those elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.

The Qigong exercises we will practice come from several traditional Qigong sets, including the 18 Luohan Hands, 8 Brocades and 12 Treasures.

This practice will deeply nourish the internal organs, nervous system, and all physiological functions. This will help you to establish, and maintain, a robust immune system, to better lessen and even alleviate physical, mental and emotional dis-ease of all types.

White Tiger Qigong (60 min.)

Simple breath and awareness techniques are combined with a series of 12 Qigong exercises to simultaneously support the elasticity of the connective tissue and a vibrant, healthy circulation of blood and Qi (chee), the word for subtle body energy in the Chinese Medicine system. 

We end our practice with a standing meditation called Zhan Zhuang, “standing on a post.” This practice will encourage a gradual untangling of the wires of communication between your body, mind and emotional core.

Yoga & Meditation (75 min.)

We will do gentle pulsing movements to nourish the body’s elasticity and strength. This will squeeze out and detoxify the body.

Improved elasticity is key to freedom of movement in our day to day activities, it builds overall wellness in our physiology, and it “un-does” the knots of mental and emotional tension that often accumulate from those activities.

The practice of pulsing movements will enable more ease during static stretching and strengthening in seated poses. We will then experience a more calm and open focus in our meditation practice.
