QiGong for Cancer Survivors & Chronic Illness

View Calendar
Jan/Thu/2023 10:15 AM - 11:15 AM

QiGong is a form of gentle, exacting movement and still meditation that uses the breath and mind to work with the body’s energy (or Qi). The intention is to help patients regain a deep sense of trust in their bodies and to encourage an open, relaxed, and calm mental state that more readily allows self-healing. This class is best suited to cancer patients and those with chronic illnesses.

Yuan Gong is an updated, gentle and effective practice of QiGong, a traditional Chinese healing system (the origin of T’aiChi). This class focuses on improving health and well-being and is appropriate for people experiencing cancer and chronic conditions. The class accommodates people with movement restrictions or even chair-based practitioners.
