Tap Into the Power of Dragons!

Posted April 25, 2019 at 5:45 am by

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.
