Qigong creates an awareness of and influences dimensions of our being that are not a part of traditional exercise programs.
The gentle, rhythmic movements of Qigong reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality, improve flexibility and balance, and enhance the immune system.
It has also been found to improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic and digestive functions.
Qigong’s great appeal is that anyone can benefit, regardless of ability, age, belief system, or life circumstances.
The slow, gentle movements of most Qigong forms can be easily adapted, even for the physically challenged and can be practiced by all age groups.
This class is both informational, experiential, and deeply relaxing. Bring a yoga mat.

“If you are new to something like QiGong, you might feel foolish or awkward while learning the various movements. Joy Black has an uncanny ability to make everyone in her class feel completely at ease. She has a very calm, soothing voice and her method of instruction is one of gentle encouragement. I took a six week Primordial QiGong class and, to be honest, after the first few weeks, I did not think I would remember all the movements much less be able to put them all together. Joy kept assuring us that each week we were at the exact level of learning we should be and that, by the final class, it would all come together and we would have a basic comfort level with the movements. Lo, and behold, this is exactly what happened. I believe the reason that I still remember what I was taught several months ago is due to Joy’s dedication and inspiring instruction. I can hear her voice even now as my arms move rhythmically gathering energy into my body.
There is a lasting value in taking these QiGong classes with Joy. With continued use of the form, I have felt more attuned to my body and my internal organs. I am grateful that through Joy’s instruction, I know that there can be a union of the energy from the Earth and my own life force. I have not achieved this yet, but that is the genius of Primordial QiGong. It can be a lifelong endeavor with ever new discoveries.”
