Qigong: Our Winter Practice

Most qigong consists of three aspects--movement, breath and the mind--in varying proportions. The practice for this season will include gentle exercises and meditations. Learn about foods that relax and detox the Liver and move Qi (life force). After you’ve learned the components, you can create your own program to fit your schedule and lifestyle.
