Dao & Cycles Qi Gong is an exploration of the movement and qualities of Qi in our body, mind and spirit. It is a form of qigong. Through certain Tai Chi postures and movements, we focus on our vital energy, how it moves through our body and how we may overcome certain blockages. In different seasons we address different qualities to harmonize ourselves with the natural world around us.
Working with gentle qigong exercises we can become aware of these qualities helping us to make changes in our lives.
Each session begins and end with the basic Qigong exercises to generate Qi.
