Description

Qigong movements help promote a tranquil mind, decreased stress, and improved health.  These beautiful, simple moves are easily attainable with Susan’s approach and ease of instruction.  All Qigong movements are soft, gentle and flowing, yet challenging at the same time.  Qigong and Tai Chi are often referred to as “meditation through movement” because one’s mind becomes quieted through engaging in the movements of slowness and fluidity.  
Each movement has specific inherent medical benefits.  There is more and more medically based research supporting the benefit of Qigong and Tai Chi for:
•healing•boosting the immune system•increasing energy•reducing pain•increasing strength and balance•reducing stress and anxiety Anyone can perform the movements, regardless of age or fitness level.  There is no getting up and down off of the floor, no holding of awkward postures, and no extreme stretching or pushing of one’s body into discomfort.  Rather, we respect our body and remain in a comfort zone of movement throughout .  
The movements flow from one to the other, generating a gentle flow of “Qi” in our bodies.  This “Qi”, or life force/energy, creates an environment of healing, both mentally and physically, prompting a calmness, internal peace and cultivating both inner and external strength.
