Qigong is the ancient practice of aligning breath, movement, and focused attention for healing and meditation. Its roots are in Chinese medicine, martial arts and philosophy. This class is gentle on the joints and easy to follow but works deeply to help you connect to your Qi (chi or life force). Qigong has a multitude of health benefits including anti-aging and will help you maintain flexibility, focus and balanced energy. It will bring healing, strength and balance to your mind, body and spirit. Although a standing practice, this class can also be done seated in a chair (which we provide).
Jacob began his training in Qigong and the world of energetic arts in 1982, studying with Grandmaster Tchoung Ta-tchen and Dr Danica Beggs in Vancouver, BC. Since then, he has worked with western astrology, hermetics, ceremonial magic, I-ching, herbalism, organic farming, Castenada shamanism, Discordianism, acupressure, TCM and other systems.
He has studied Medical Qigong with the International Institute of Medical Qigong and Shamanistic Qigong with the Empty Mountain Institute.
