Introduction to Qigong
August 5 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am PDTFree
GenPride starts a new summer series of QiGong on Friday, July 22!
Join instructor Kimberly Ivy, founder of Seattle’s Embrace the Moon Tai Chi and Qigong for a free, 6-week Qigong course. Qigong is a contemplative movement system that is one of the main branches of Chinese Medicine. 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 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 feel better all-around!
This course will cover fundamental methods of breathing, movement, and concentration. Between classes, you can practice with a video recording of that week’s session. All ages and fitness levels are welcome!
Fridays, 10:30 – 11:30 am, class online via zoom
July 22 through Aug 26
