Qigong is designed to cultivate strength of body and calmness of mind through Taoist practices that integrate movement, breath, and qi (internal energy) to promote health and longevity. A form of gentle, relaxing exercise, qigong strengthens joints, muscles, tendons, and bones, increases flexibility, stimulates the circulation of energy in our body, and enhances mental clarity. Qigong is also an excellent way to gently introduce mobility and relaxation to persons who have physical challenges.

This is a rare opportunity to receive instruction in two unique qigong lineages, neither of which have previously been fully transmitted to students in the West. The Pre-Celestial Limitless Gate School (Xiantianwujimen) and the Yiquan School, founded by Wang Xiangzhai in the early 20th century.

In Level 1, students will be in instructed in various techniques of outer and inner qigong. In Level 2, the focus will be on tendon changing and self-massage. Please note: participants are expected to attend both Levels 1 and 2 (both days)

There are no prerequisites for this program, and both new and experienced practitioners are welcome. However, students are recommended to attend both levels. The completion of Level 1 qigong is required to attend the Level 2 program. Please note that students should not teach any form of Xiantianwujimen or Yiquan qigong without permission from the Lineage.
