Taught by Gina de la Chesnaye. Learning how to cultivate the conscious connection between mind and body and self and nature can increase our well-being and resiliency through energy (qi) cultivation (gong).
All practices are trauma-informed and suitable for people of varying ages and abilities. Breath work, seated meditation and moving meditation will be offered. Comfortable clothes and a curious mind are all that are needed — a meditation cushion is always helpful though.
Gina will share from the wisdom tradition of the Xing Ming Gong School of Qi Gong.
