Qi Gong: The Six Healing Sounds
Mondays, January 23 to February 6, 10:45 to 11:45am, $30/$40
Instructor: Jido Lee Ferguson, RYT
Research shows that blood pressure can be lowered by strengthening the breathing musculature. Qi Gong is the ancient Chinese medicinal and martial practice designed to do just that. You’ll build up your life force by repeating vigorous, unvoiced breath sounds, exerting friction on the exhale. This practice also concentrates your mind and opens internal organs, preparing you for deep meditation. As you connect with Zoom leader Jido Lee Ferguson, who has led this class in a variety of settings since 2016, your mind will be nurtured, and you’ll end the class refreshed and strengthened.
