Private Qigong Instruction
Qigong is a gentle healing movement practice that is part of the system of Chinese Medicine. Qigong balances energy within the body for optimal health and assists the practitioner in experiencing their full potential. Gina has been practicing qigong for 10 years as a way to balance the energy generated in tantra practices, as well as to heal her own health concerns. She has found it extremely helpful in managing the challenging symptoms of perimenopause, as well to slow her down in a fast paced culture, so she can remain cancer free. Gina has been breast cancer free for 8 years. Gina has been mentored by Ann Carroll for 6 years in Qigong and Chinese Medicine. Ann Carroll is the student of Ken Cohen, who is the author of the well known book The Way of QiGong. Gina is certified to teach Level II Radiant Lotus Women's Qigong by Daisy Lee.

Women's Body Temple: Qigong for Women's Reproductive Health & Sexual Vitality
Thursdays 9:30 - 10:30am / begins March 9, 2017
This practice brings balance to the female reproductive organs and hormones. It also increases overall health and sexual vitality. For men, Qigong is meant to transform jing (sexual energy) into shen (spiritual energy) and qi (life-force). Women's Qigong balances qi, shen and jing. Raised in a yang society, women seek this balance. Embody the divine feminine with a circle of women as we share movement, breath, meditation, prayer and song. No experience is necessary. You may choose to journal as you practice this form. When weather permits (above freezing and sunny), we may do some movements outdoors, so dress accordingly. No experience necessary. Modifications and options are provided for physical needs.
