Each hour-long Immortal Tree Qigong session will start with breathing exercises, warm up, Qi activation and gentle stretching. You will then be guided through flowing movements broken up by short standing meditations. We will end with a slightly longer guided standing (or sitting) meditation before we bow out. This should leave a few minutes to answer questions or discuss any insights.
Qigong doesn’t require any special skills (other than breathing) or equipment (other than your body).
Summer Fire & Earth Elements Series (10 Saturday Sessions)
In Qigong Theory, there are actually two summer seasons — early summer, which begins with the Summer Solstice and late summer, which begins around the third week of August. Early Summer celebrates the energy of Fire, which circulates and expands. This energy encourages us to open our hearts and minds to share our light and energy with others, and to open our joints to release heat from the body. Late Summer celebrates the energy of Earth, which nourishes and balances. This energy encourages us to find our center amidst the world around us, to embrace our own unique Way, and to feel that Way nurture our vitality calling us to life, joy and connection.
Join us as we meet next to Cedar Lake in Carriage Hill Metropark for 10 Saturday mornings starting June 25th through September 3 to breathe deeply and circulate and expand, and nourish and balance. We will not have sessions on Saturday, July 9 .
Participants will be guided through hour-long Qigong routines starting with breathing exercises, warm up, Qi activation and flowing movements. We will end with a guided standing (or sitting) meditation before we bow out.

Five Rivers Metroparks Community Fitness Program
You can also join me as I merge Qigong and Tai Chi (although technically Tai Chi is a type of Qigong) by teaching parts of the Standard 24 Tai Chi form as Qigong on Tuesday nights at 6pm. These sessions are free and open to the public and held rain or shine at Riverscape most Tuesdays through October 11 with a few Tuesdays off here and there. Simply show up and get ready to find out why Qigong and Tai Chi are wellness practices that have lasted thousands of years!
