Qi Gong is an ancient form of exercise, healing, and prayer, developed by the Indigenous people of Asia.
Famous for its fluid dance-like gestures, Qi Gong focuses on deep relaxation, a balance of strength and flexibility, breathwork, somatic (embodied) awareness, and emotional intelligence.
All while deepening your relationship with your inner life and the natural world.
In our most instinctual moments, we sigh, scream, gasp, moan, inhale suddenly or yawn from fatigue.
Breathing is a metaphor for how we experience our lives, expansively or constrained.
Breathwork is an almost effortless way to reconnect with your instincts, balance your stress hormones, reduce inflammation and releive pain.
Breathwork is also a profound opportunity to develop a safe and tangible relationship with your health, your past experiences, your memories and the stories that can keep any of us paralyzed in our lives.
Somatic Mindfulness is a form of Trauma Release Therapy and a form of daily personal practice. This healing process involves instinctual movement and awareness, transformational breathwork, guided meditation, bodywork, Qi Gong and Shamanic Journeying.
Somatic Mindfulness is also a form of therapeutic counseling, supporting people in the process of resolving trauma, addiction, chronic pain, and autoimmune disease.

The Fundamentals of Movement, Posture, and Breath
What is a Qi Gong Class Like?
A Qi Gong class is like going dancing. The experience depends on the music that is playing.
Almost all Qi gong classes are going to flow to the music of the following specific opportunities to learn and ways to practice.
Standing Qi Gong
The foundation of Qi Gong is standing with your knees bent, leaning, turning, stretching and making repetitive fluid gestures. On the outside, most of these exercises look easy, but on the inside, there is a mirror of the universe seeking balance, vitality and inner peace.
Seated Qi Gong
When seated, you may find yourself doing more careful versions of the exercises you have learned standing, or more often, you will find yourself deeply immersed in breathwork and inner awareness practices.
The subtle qualities of each breath is an invitation into meditative presence and energetic healing. There are many forms of breathwork that Qi Gong relies on to guide you through blockages, heal chronic illness, and transcend mundane reality.
The earliest form of Qi Gong, Called Dao Yin, was a part of an embodied healing system created by the Indigenous people of Asia. This aspect of Qi gong focuses on how illness, trauma, and chronic distress can be held in your body as an Instinctual, Visceral or Existential memory.
Finding and releasing these energetic wounds or painful thought-forms is a form of Shamanic Healing.
Flexibility is a sign of youthful vigour and a happy body. Core strength is as necessary as the number of hours you spend sitting in a chair.
In both Qi Gong and Yoga, a lot of time is spent on the floor, sitting and stretching or holding postures that tone the muscles of your core.
Meditation can be experienced almost anywhere. I Qi Gong practice, there are Seated, Standing, Lying, and Walking forms of meditation. Some encourage stillness, while others play with rhythmic movement.
Theory and Principles
Qi Gong has been around for at least 5,000 years. If you want a deep and complete understanding and experience of Qi Gong, there are some theories, concepts and terminology that you will need to explore. As you progress through your training, you will learn a great deal about Traditional Chinese Medicine, Shamanic Healing, and the Indigenous Wisdom of Daoism.
