Darryl Aiken-Afam guides us through a hands on workshop exploring the ancient healing art of qigong that we can introduce into our lives to alleviate and flow with everyday anxiety.
Qigong exercises are becoming very popular again in society and for good reason. With such high levels of personal and social anxiety arising all over the planet, the standing movement form of Jing Luo Xi (Meridian Cleansing) Qigong is a powerful aid in protecting, cleansing, and healing oneself from the inner and outer onslaughts we face on a daily basis. Similar to Tai Chi, Qigong is simpler in its approach to reducing anxiety using the natural power of Yin Yang to clear the meridians, vessels, and energy vortexes of the body.
We will learn about the philosophy of qigong and then move into guided exercises that you'll be able to take away with you and integrate into your life. All are welcome and no experience is needed.
