Qigong & Tai Chi for a Healthy Spine Workshop (Studio)

Chinese proverb: “You are as young as your spine.” Learn tai chi principles and postures that support a healthy spine. A therapeutic qigong regimen for a healthy back is also introduced. The gentle flowing movements promote flexibility and strength of the tissues. The connective tissue, or fascia, that envelopes the vertebra of the spine is impacted positively with the ancient Chinese exercises of qigong and tai chi. Learn slow gentle nourishing qigong exercises rooted in Medical/Therapeutic Qigong.
