QigongNewHealing Qigong

The art of Qigong is thousands of years old. As self-healing practice, it has certainly stood the test of time. The word Qigong is actually two words in Mandarin Chinese: Qi meaning “Energy” and gong meaning “Skill”. In this class, we will use “Energy Skill” to help our bodies, minds and spirits reach a state of peace, calm and flowing energy. We will learn breathing techniques to help quite the emotions and calm the mind. We will learn gentle movements designed to help the flow of energy through our bodies and optimize the possibility for healing and well-being. And we will experience simple meditations that allow the mind to relax and help to rejuvenate the spirit. All the movements in the class are slow and gentle. The experienced practitioner will be challenged, yet the movements can be modified according to an individual’s physical capacity. Any comfortable clothing is fine, but flat shoes or bare feet are recommended. Come experience this ancient art for yourself!

Qigong for Women

In ancient Chinese culture,  the practice of self-improvement through movement, meditation and breathwork, was very different for men and women. They recognized the vast differences in men and women socially, physically and emotionally.  Unfortunately, many of the techniques that separated the women’s practice were lost because of the cultural revolution in China. The men’s practices were preserved through the many forms of martial arts passed down through the ages. Sarah has been fortunate to study with one of the few Daoist Abbesses, Zhang Ming Xin, 22nd Generation Disciple of Long Men Pai (Dragon Gate sect), Qing Cheng Shan, Si Chuan province, who still teaches these secret women’s practices.  Sarah is teaching some of these meditations and techniques in this class.

"The highest goodness resembles water

Water greatly benefits myriad things without contention

It stays in places that people dislike

Therefore it is similar to the Tao"
