Qigong is a practice of transformation that can function on multiple aspects of our being. It invites us into harmonious relationship with our selves, the seasons, our environment, and the greater macrocosm. In this session, Claire will share form practice, meditations, and acupressure self-massage to support balance, healing, and growth. All are welcome. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing.
