Qigong & Yoga

Qigong is a system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial-arts training.

With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed by the Chinese and throughout Asia as a practice to cultivate and balance qi  as “life energy”.

Qigong practice typically involves moving meditation, coordinating slow-flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and a calm meditative state of mind. People practice qigong throughout China and worldwide for recreation, exercise, relaxation, preventive medicine, self-healing, alternative medicine, meditation, self-cultivation, and training for martial arts.


Unlike open level classes of other studios, all of our classes are customized for specific skill levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced

These levels allow a natural progression, ensuring that a student is ready to advance to the next class level.

After a level assessment, our instructors can determine whether a student is ready to move up to the next level.

Qigong Classes

Beginner Class

Beginner classes cater to the absolute beginner. This level is ideal for new students to build their knowledge of the basic principles of Qigong, while also giving them the opportunity to build up their coordination and strength.

✳︎ This level is appropriate for women who are pregnant.

Intermediate Class

Our Intermediate level classes are designed to further challenge the coordination and strength of students through variations of the classic Qigong movements. These energetic, fast paced classes include some modifications for more advanced exercises, but students are encouraged to challenge themselves.

✳︎ This level is not appropriate for women who are pregnant.

Advanced Class

Advanced class levels are high intensity Qigong classes. This level is only recommended for students who have already been taking the intermediate classes and have been assessed, approved, and promoted to this level by our instructors. Due to the intensity of the movement and quick transitions between movements a certain level of coordination and strength is required from each student to ensure safety.

✳︎ This level is not appropriate for women who are pregnant.
