Movements for Health
QiGong has been practiced in China by millions of people for
5000 years for strengthening the flow of the life force and
improving health. Magnetic energy fields are formed and created in a
slow, graceful manner. The Qi (life force) literally pulsates in
your hands. These exercises move Qi and blood through blockages that
normally cannot be crossed. Dr. Oz, Oprah’s favorite M.D., says that
QiGong helps to reverse the aging process. You will learn exercises
that can be practiced at home and incorporated into your life. The
history and theory of QiGong will also be discussed.
