During this workshop Master Huang will teach China’s most essential qi-gong exercises for anyone who wishes to sustain a daily practice for personal mind-body-spirit well-being. He will teach easy-to-absorb, adaptive exercises of this ancient qi-gong practice and assist you through metaphors, visualization, sonic chanting meditation and deep circular breathing methods. During this fun, joyful experience for all ages and levels of practitioners we will take in this healthy habit for good: “Wei Wu Wei”— doing by not doing, spontaneously.

Beginners and “advanced beginners” are welcome.
