    Qigong (CHEE-gung) is an ancient movement tradition from China, similar to Tai C’hi. Chi (chee) means vital life force, or energy, that flows through us to maintain our vitality. “Gung” or “kong” means work or skill.

    Qigong at Sebastopol Senior Center is simplified, and does not follow a formula, tradition or program. Our stances “tonify” qi and our gentle movements restore two basic capacities of the spine necessary for whole body wellness: waves and spirals. Even a spine that cannot turn or bend well can benefit from modified movements and the intention of flexibility and tone inherent in the forms.

    What to expect: Each class is about 75 minutes. Wear comfortable clothing and flat shoes. We walk around the room for a few minutes to increase our awareness of movement in our bodies; we warm the joints of the spine, knees and hips and ankles, and sometimes walk for a few minutes more to feel the difference in our posture and ease of gait.

    All movements can be modified to work with any physical limitations or injuries. Extra time given for review and special needs.
