Introduction to Qigong
September 24 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am PDT
An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Friday, repeating until December 17, 2021
Join Instructor Kimberly Ivy, founder of Seattle’s Embrace the Moon Tai Chi and Qigong for a free, 12-week Qigong course.
Qigong is a contemplative movement system that is one of the main branches of Chinese Medicine. (The others are Nutrition, Massage, Herbs, and Acupuncture.) There are many variations of Qigong and you’ve likely seen several of them being practiced in the parks or online.
No matter the method variety, all Qigong is a health system that helps us to understand Yin/Yang philosophy, meditation, breath, and movement. All of these beautiful flows harmonize the body, mind, and spirit with nature and provide many health benefits. In just a short time of practice, you’ll find you feel better all-around!
This course will cover fundamental methods of breathing, movement, and concentration. We will teach walking and breathing methods, meditation techniques, and the more active Ba Duan Jin, or “Eight Jewels,” a 2000-year-old Qigong form still popular and relevant today. Between classes, you can practice with recordings you will receive of each of the class sessions. People of all ages and fitness levels are welcome and will benefit from this free course!
