Over thousands of years people in the far-east practiced a self-healing technique that was practical, effortless and that takes very little time. Qi Gong combines the benefits of physical exercise and meditation practice -- strengthening the mind and the body at the same time.
Qi Gong literally means, "energy cultivation practice," and the most recent name, Yang Sheng means, "life nourishing" or "life preserving" and it teaches your body and mind to move with relaxation and power; to go with the flow of life rather than struggling to swim against the current of life. Resisting the flow creates stress and embracing the flow generates effortless power and quietude.

In each Qi Gong class you tap into the wisdom of your own body and the healing potential of your mind using conscious movements combined with breath and visualizations. These practices cultivate Qi (Chi) to unite, gather, strengthen and heal the body.
