In this program, we will be setting our intentions, then opening the energetic pathways of the body with several Qigong styles to release stuck qi and absorb new and vital life force energy. Each day will begin with a morning mindful walking meditation to help clear our minds and set our focus for the day’s practice. The movements we will practice are suitable for all levels and most can be adapted for those who have difficulty standing.
