Crane Qigong - Weekly Wednesday Evenings at 6:30pm from May 17 - June 21, 2023

Crane Qigong & other Qigong practices for the heart and preparing for the Summer season.

The crane is a symbol of meditative stillness and longevity. The crane forms in Qigong invite our spirits to feel light and lifted, while cultivating and drawing from deep roots in the ground. 

This simple Qigong practice feels light, relaxed, and excellent for the heart. It comprises six movement sequences that can be carried out as a set form.  They have a calming, nurturing and balancing effect with a slow and steady rhythm. This harmonizes and conditions the circulatory and respiratory systems while creating a moving meditation that helps to quiet the mind and steady the heart.
