Qigong is a gentle, but profound exercise practiced for thousands of years in China for longevity and self healing. "Qi" refers to the energy that is expressed in our physical, mental and emotional life. "Gong" means to work or cultivate. So, qigong is about working with our energy in ways that help us to let go of stress and to relax, which allows the body's healing resources to kick in. The exercise program integrates gentle movement, self-massage, mind focus and breathe work. It is very easy to follow. No pressure! Tai Chi is one of the Well-Known forms of qigong, so we will incorporate some graceful and easy Tai Chi gestures. You'll leave with some stress relief tools that you can use at your office, home or even in the car to keep stressful energy from settling into your body. Wear comfortable and loose clothing. Phyllis Lobdell is a certified teacher of qigong through the Institute Integral Qigong and Tai Chi, Santa Barbara, CA.
