Qigong exercises are gentle movements that combine slow moving postures, breath and visualization or intention. Many people define it as “meditation in movement”. It’s similar to TaiChi, however Qigong has the advantage that it isolates individual exercises and allows for tailoring a session to your particular needs or physical constitution. It is a method of self-healing that has a profound effect on improving your health with minimal effort.
Qigong’s gentle workout is perfect for persons recovering from injuries, surgery or who otherwise cannot participate in high-impact or yoga-type exercises.
Meditationis the practice of training the mind for a particular purpose. Our weekly class is designed for beginner students to obtain a state of “calm-abiding”.

This type of meditation is where all meditation practices begin. Advanced meditation techniques are offered on a one-on-one basis.
