Rooted in Chinese medicine, Qigong is a practice designed to increase energy flow through the meridian channels of the body. The movement is slow, yet complex, integrating spiral patterns through the hands, arms, shoulders and hip joints. It is beneficial for all levels, including the beginner. The challenging, yet gentle flow is meant to a build strength, increase energy, and cultivate a meditative breath.Taoflow: 60 min. Basics by Cain Carroll
