AWAKEN THE BODY'S INTELLIGENCE
The art of Qi Gong consists of three aspects: gentle movements, relaxed or regulated breathing, and focused awareness. Its graceful, cadenced movements help to reduce stress, build stamina, and to promote a tranquil state of mind. Through simple movements we can shed tension, stress & unnecessary emotion, build physical awareness & flexibility, and increase our energy.
Qi Gong (pronounced Chee Gung) is an ancient Chinese exercise system dating back over 5,000 years. Made up of two Mandarin words, Qi refers to the force which flows through all living things and Gong means a practiced skill; together they describe the mind-body ability to circulate one’s own energy to stimulate vitality.
Through a combination of physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused intention, Qigong is beautiful to watch but even more beautiful when experienced as a participant. Come join us and feel how this restorative healing art can bring to your life harmony, strength, and joy.
Dr. Kandel was introduced to Qi Gong as a student at the Nanjing College of Traditional Chinese Medicine while in China in 1985. He has practiced for 30 years since that time. He currently practices daily in his backyard next to his wife’s Icelandic horse, Kaj.
