Community Qi Gong Classes Start in June
Have you ever thought of learning qi gong, but don’t know where to begin?
Join us for the first community qi gong series hosted at Evolve Health + Wellness!
Qi gong is a form of exercise that combines rhythmic breathing with coordinated, repetitive, gentle movement, often resulting in a state of meditation and relaxation.
Five Element Qi Gong is a system of Chinese Qi Gong exercises designed to regulate and harmonize the physiological systems of the body. Based on the Five Element Theory in Chinese Medicine, these simple yet profound movements can be practiced daily to regulate the breath and organs while simultaneously aligning the joints and connective tissue.
Targeting every major organ system, Five Element Qi Gong can be beneficial to everyone, both qi gong newbies and veterans alike.
Everyone is welcome to participate, no prior experience necessary.
Classes are held Thursdays in June:
- June 4 7:00 – 8:00 pm
- June 11 7:00 – 8:00 pm
- June 18 7:00 – 8:00 pm
- June 25 7:00 – 8:00 pm
Cost: $100 for the series of 4 classes
