Take advantage of this opportunity to review and practice the Sun Style Tai Chi for Arthritis form. The format of this session will be that of a group practice; there will be very little instruction or correction offered.  Even if you haven’t been exposed to the entire form, come and review what you have learned so far and get a preview of the portions you have yet to learn!  This is also a great introduction for those with little or no Tai Chi experience.  Join in, follow along, and see if a Tai Chi class is something you might like to try in the future!

Qigong Classes 

qigong

Qigong, or “Energy Cultivation” classes generally include meditation, breathing practice, self-massage or acupressure, and meditative movement.  The focus of the class may be general, such as Stress Management, relate to the current season of the year with its gifts and challenges, or cover a variety of cultivation methods to address a chronic health concern, such as headaches, back pain, or menopause. 

In 2013 I completed a three year training in Medical Qigong through the Academy for Five Element Acupuncture and the International Institute of Medical Qigong.  My classes therefore draw heavily upon the meditations, exercises, and other practices learned through this extensive training.  In addition, I am honored to be certified by Francesco Garripoli and Daisy Lee to teach Organ Cleansing Qigong.  

Tai Chi Classes

taichiWhile Qigong often employs individual movements that are repeated, Tai Chi typically strings together Qigong-like movements into a more choreographed meditative dance.  I am certified by the Tai Chi for Health organization to teach Tai Chi for Arthritis and Tai Chi for Diabetes.  I have also completed training as a Tai Chi Easy™ Practice Leader.
