Upcoming Taiji/Qigong Classes

I currently offer two different levels of classes: A foundational class and an intermediate class.

The Qigong Foundations class is for learning and refining fundamental principles of Qigong. It is the necessary knowledge for going on to do more complex Qigong and Taiji. It is also great for more experienced practitioners to review what has already been learned, to go more deeply into the layers.

The core curriculum of the Qigong Foundations class is the first two Levels of Book Dragon Qigong. The first two levels contain four gentle movement sets, a set of healing sounds, two breathing exercises, two self-massage sets, two meditations and a gentle stretching set. The Qigong Foundations class will cycle through all the Qigong in the first two levels over about eight, 8-week courses.

The following are individual courses or workshops that cover the entire foundational curriculum of Book Dragon Qigong. The Foundations Curriculum covers levels 1 and 2 of Book Dragon Qigong. Though the courses are numbered, a student may begin at any point. Each course will returned to in its cyclic order.

1.    Super Gentle Qigong set and Insomnia Qigong

2.    Five Flows Qigong set and Sun and Moon Detoxifying meditation

3.    Delightful Dozen Qigong set and Six Healing Sounds set

4.    Five Flows Qigong set 2 (Five Flowers) and Self-Healing Qigong Massage

5.    Super Gentle Qigong set and 8 Pieces of Brocade set

6.    Five Flows Qigong set and Four-Part Protection Process meditation

7.    Delightful Dozen Qigong set and Easy Breathing practices

8.    Five Flows Qigong set 2 (Five Flowers)IKN and Spherical Breathing practices

Note that four slow gentle movements sets are repeated in the cyclic series, as they are considered more essential to this style of self-healing movement practices.
