What is Qi Gong?

Qi Gong is a practice that focuses the mind on breath while

performing gentle movement for the purpose of nurturing and

balancing all the energies (Qi) of the body.  It is both meditative

and therapeutic. The practice of Qi Gong coaxes your internal

energy to circulate in the most beneficial ways.  The gentler you

practice the breathing & movements the greater the health



Qi Gong is similar to Tai Chi but is much easier to learn.  

"Six Healing Sounds - Qi Gong":  Each of six Qi Gong exercises is performed with a sound that has a healing resonance with a body organ:  liver, heart, spleen, lungs, kidneys and triple burner.  The life/breath of each organ can be strengthened with regular practice.

“Yi Jin Jing - Qi Gong” is a system of breathing and stretching exercises that benefit the tendons, muscles and joints.  Ann teaches a modified version of exercises performed by the Buddhist monks of the Shao Lin temple in China.  Regular practice makes you more limber and

less prone to injuries.

“Eight Brocades - Qi Gong” Try this very popular health enhancing style of Qi Gong.

“Tai Chi for Arthritis” is a Sun style tai chi form adapted for individuals with arthritis or physical limitation.  It has been confirmed by numerous studies to help improve range of motion, ease discomfort, improve balance and prevent falls.

“Yang style Tai Chi” is the most popular Tai Chi style practiced in the world.  Ann has practiced Yang style long form for over 15 years.   Today she teaches a short form suitable for beginners and seniors.

“Bagua” is a walking meditation practice that involves walking around a tree with simple techniques and visualization. Bagua practice gives profound healing and calming benefits. Call or text Ann for more information on this FREE event.  Most Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.

What you can expect from this class:

Warm up exercises and gentle stretches ease joint stiffness, pain and fatigue. Posture and breathing techniques are emphasized as you perform simple movements.  The effect enhances the circulation of healing Qi throughout the body.  You feel calmer and energized.  

Regular practice will reduce joint pain, calm the mind, strengthen the back & legs, tone the abdomen & thighs and reduce many symptoms.
