This is a simple class about returning to simplicity. It is about relaxing the mind and energizing the body. “Qigong” is the general name for a diverse set of practices that are rooted in the worldview of Chinese Medicine and have been utilized for thousands of years to reclaim balance and tranquility within. Using the classical forms of the Eight-Piece Brocade and the Five Animal Frolics, some basic movements from Tai Chi Chuan, and various breathing exercises, this class will teach the fundamentals of meditation and self-healing, Chinese style. No prior experience is necessary and absolutely anyone can learn. Instructor Sue Driscoll studies Yang-style Tai Chi Chuan with the lineage holders of the Tung family: Master Tung Kai Ying and Master Tung Chen Wei. She has led classes in Tai Chi and Qi Gong at the Falling Water School since 2011.
