Qigong for Mind-Body Wellness

An online workshop

Saturday, December 12, 2020

2:00 to 3:30 pm (Eastern)

Qigong (pronounced "Chee Gung") is a powerful ancient Chinese system of self-healing exercise and energy medicine. Through gentle meditative movement and breathing techniques, the practice of qigong supports cardiovascular health and immune system functioning, reduces pain, strengthens joints, and promotes relaxation of the body, calmness of mind, and the balancing of emotions. The ease of qigong makes it appropriate and accessible for people of all ages and levels of fitness. 

We will enjoy the following two Qigong forms:

The Five Animal Frolics: Approximately 2000 years old, this classical form is regarded as the earliest system of medical qigong in Chinese history. This is a playful form consisting of dancelike movements embodying the Tiger, Deer, Bear, Monkey, and Crane. This form develops strength, flexibility, gracefulness, and balance. 

The Taiji Qigong 8 Form: Informed and inspired by traditional Qigong and Taiji movements, this is a modern form compiled by the workshop instructor. This form is easy-to-learn and cultivates deep relaxation, mental calmness, balance, and vitality.  

This workshop is appropriate for beginners as well as more experienced practitioners of Qigong and Tai Chi. Our time together will be primarily devoted to the joy of mindful movement!

Instructor: Larry Cammarata, Ph.D.

Location: Zoom Online. The Zoom link will be sent to you after registration.
