Why Qi Gong?
  • Awakens us to our own wisdom for the day.
  • Makes space for the self before we tackle the world.
  • Strengthens us as we navigate medical, social, work, psychological & spiritual challenges.
  • Activates our innate inner-life resources: courage, self-compassion, immune system, decision making, creativity, peacefulness, gratitude, sense of belonging, and the ability to relax and be strong!
