Five Animal Qigong: Vitality of the Deer, Power of the Tiger

with Kenneth Cohen

Why do more than three million Americans practice qigong, China's ancient healing art? These gentle yet dynamic exercises are meditation in motion and connected to the Taoist quest for longevity, health, and peace. This workshop offers a complete qigong wellness routine based on the Five Animal Frolics, considered the oldest healing exercises in the world, which include the vitality of the deer, the power of the tiger, the balance of the crane, the suppleness of the monkey, and the rooted strength of the bear.
