What you will learn
At the beginning of this class the 8-Brocade Qigong Set might occupy most of the class time since the movements - while seemingly simple - take a little time to feel 'at home' in. Stretching and Standing Meditation is flowed in as time and class progress allows.
"Eight Pieces of Brocade"-Qigong Set (Ba Duan Jin) The "Eight Pieces of Brocade" or 8 Jewels is a set of Qigong exercises that originated in China and is one of the most practiced throughout the world. Practicing it diligently will lead to improved health, increased energy, a reduction in stress and anxiety and a re-balancing of body & mind - all of which in turn result in an overall sense of well-being.

Simple Stretching & Relaxation Exercises These will be simple, gentle exercises which increase blood circulation, improve range of motion and calm body & mind.
Standing Meditation (Zhan Zhuang) Standing Meditation or "Zhan Zhuang" means "Standing like a tree" and is used to remove blockages in Qi flow, Qi energy cultivation and Qi re-balancing.
All of the exercises taught can be performed standing or sitting so that this class is also well suited for seniors.
