QIGONG WITH MISAKO
What is Qigong?
Qigong (pronounced "Chee Gong") is a gentle exercise and art form that can be practiced by anyone. As a foundational component of Traditional East Asian medicine (TEAM) for prevention of diseases and maintenance of good health, regular practice (even 20 minutes a day), can have lasting effects for physical, as well as emotional and spiritual well being. Combining flowing and stretching movements, breath work, visualization and meditation, Qigong can harmonize the mind and body while clearing blockages to allow free flow of vital life force (Qi). When our Qi is flowing freely, we will have good health; When our mind and are spirit are peaceful, we can connect to the cosmic flow of the universe.
*Although all styles of Qigong can cultivate well being, Misako teaches medical Qigong through Ling Gui International Healing Qigong School. Medical Qigong is specific to addressing health concerns such as improving immunity and allergies, healing gynecological imbalances, strengthening tendons and bones, assisting with sleep, healing the brain etc. Medical Qigong routines are akin to prescriptions for a more targeted approach to health concerns, but they are still beneficial to anyone who practices them.

Stay tuned for on-line offerings
Let's gather Tuesday mornings to practice a self healing Qigong form called "Hui Gong", or Wisdom Qigong for the Blood, Brain and Marrow. This form activates the deepest energy of the body, the Kidney Jing to produce the marrow that nourishes the brain and blood.
We will transition through a series of stretching and slow, isometric/resisted movements to warm tendons and joints, while creating physical stamina and muscular strength. Regular practice improve memory and brain function while supporting the constitution of the body.
No experience necessary; just show up and follow along! First class is FREE.
