With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is
traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (chi),
translated as “life energy.” Qigong practice typically involves moving
meditation, coordinating slow flowing movement without force, deep
breathing, and a calm meditative mind. It supports the body’s natural
tendency to return to balance and equilibrium and, also, gently, yet
profoundly, creates strength, flexibility, and balance in the muscles and
joints through gentle flowing movements synchronized with the breath.

Norsha’s class is considered modern qigong with a little more movement
than traditional qigong and is available to all ages, young adults to
seniors, men and women, and very easy to learn. It is relaxing and
energizing all in one.

The practice will be done to qigong music which is soothing, slow, and
quiet. Participants should wear comfortable clothing that allows them
to move freely. Usually, it is practiced without shoes or with socks with
a no-slip backing. We will practice about 30 different movements and
the class will last about one hour.
