Summer Solstice Qi Gong

Join Katie Fly for this Summer Solstice Qi Gong Workshop!

Qi Gong is an ancient practice deeply rooted in Chinese history and tradition. It is the spiritual practice out of which Tai Chi and all martial arts evolved. The name Qi Gong (pronounced “chee gong”) translates roughly as “energy cultivation”. The practice acknowledges that we exist in a sea of charged particles and it invites us to very deliberately gather that abundance and direct it internally.

Through the practice of Qi Gong we increase our own vital life force and we also ensure it’s a smooth flow within. The practice involves gentle movement in combination with breath and intention to yield a simple yet powerful form of self care which you can easily learn and apply to your own health. Benefits of regular practice include increased energy, a greater sense of ease, improved mental clarity, increased resistance to disease and more robust resilience to mental emotional and physical stress.

During this class you will learn ways to incorporate Qi-Gong into your meditation practice and specific exercises to celebrate the longest day of the year and the fullness of the fire element. We will cultivate the energy of the heart, connection, joy, and celebration...all the gifts which summer has to offer!
