Event Details

Cost: Sliding Scale $75 – 200. Please bring your lunch. Code FM1D18.

Spinal Qigong, also known as Chan Mi Gong, is an ancient Buddhist Qigong style originating in Tibet 1,500 years ago during the Tang Dynasty. “Chan” means Zen in Japanese, while “Mi” comes from the Tibetan tradition and refers to the more secretive element of the practice.

This Qigong style combines these two different aspects, and focuses on slow, gentle, wavelike spinal motions. The inner and outer movements and techniques lead to a flexible, healthy spine, the release of tension and energy or “Qi” blockages in whole body. Together, we will explore how this practice continues to be relevant today, bringing us increased energy, focus, calm, memory, and well-being.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
