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.
“I was one of the lucky individuals who took Joy’s Primordial QiGong class this Fall. I’ve taken other QiGong and Tai Chi classes in the past but it was by far the most enjoyable one I’ve had. The really great thing is that I was actually able to learn the entire form in the single 6 week session. The other amazing thing about this class is that I enjoy doing it so much that I’ve practiced it almost daily ever since the class; that’s something that never happened with other QiGong and Tai Chi forms I’ve studied. Primordial QiGong is now a permanent part of my energy practices and I’m really looking forward to the next time the class is taught because I’d like to continue to “tweak” what I’ve learned.”
