New Class Offerings!

Join Kate for a fun, energetic and ancient Qigong set designed to release stress, boost energy levels and enhance a centered and relaxed state of being. No props needed, wear comfortable clothes and eat light.  No prior experience is necessary. This practice is usually done standing, but chairs or mats are also available if anyone needs to sit.  All ages 16 and above are welcome.  Get ready to laugh and shake up some Qi!


If you're new to Qigong and don't know what it is, here's a simple definition:  Qi is often defined as "life force energy" and "gong" means movement, exercise, or practice.  The Dao Yin practice uses visualization and exercise, or Qigongs, to intentionally move energy through a student's body.  Through a series of purgation Qigongs, the student purposefully moves stuck energy out of their body, eliminating toxins that cause stress.  (According to a recent study of medical doctors, stress is the leading factor in 80% of pathology.)  Next, clean energy is added to strengthen the five yin organs through specific Qigongs designed for each Yin organ (lungs, kidneys, liver, heart and spleen).  Lastly, the healthy Qi is circulated through the body via a special meditation.  The process is similar to an oil change - draining old gunky energy (like oil), then running fresh, clean energy throughout the system.


The medical benefits are immense - strengthening the immune system, boosting energy levels, and relieving daily stress, to name a few. We will also work on special breathing techniques and grounding meditations, as well as learning other helpful Qigongs and methods, including color and sound therapy to tonify (strengthen) organs.


In the spring, I will be teaching both a Beginner's and an Advanced Class at the Garden in Saratoga (434 Church Street, Saratoga Springs, NY).  Time and day to be announced.  It will be held outside, weather permitting. This is an ongoing class.  The Beginner's class focuses on learning the entire practice and essential breathing and grounding techniques.  It is more instruction based and always experiential.  The Advanced Class is more about the experience and progressive learning of more detailed parts of the practice or other Qigong forms.  Students are required to complete the Beginners class first, although some exceptions may apply if the student is learning the form within therapeutic services.  Cost per class is $15 (cash preferred). To my knowledge, this is a unique offering, and I feel honored to be able to bring this powerful practice to our area.
