Tap Into the Power of Dragons!
Find Your Calm. Find Your Center. Find Your Power. For those seeking that elusive ‘more,’ join us in Shaman Style 5 Dragons Qigong. It begins on Thursdays, 5:30 – 6:30 pm, May 2 through June 27 at Friday Harbor Dance Studio.
This is an ancient Chinese mind/body technique to enhance the body’s bio-energy system for greater health, vitality, and self-awareness. In Chinese culture, the dragon is a symbol of power, strength and good luck. Metaphysically, the Dragon works with the power of the spirit, healing and divine connection.
The 5 Dragons Qigong form is especially physical, offering strength and balance training intertwined in the energetic and spiritual forms. The flowing movements are similar to Tai Chi, but done in place, making it an excellent home practice, especially in small places.
The varied movements provide an opportunity to strengthen the musculoskeletal system, improve balance, increase vitality, harmonize the organ network system, calm the mind, and enhance focused attention.
The 5 Dragons session runs for 9 weeks, $108, $17 for drop-ins. No prior experience required.
