What is Qi gong?
Qi gong (pronounced: chee-gun), which combines meditative and physically active elements, is the basic exercise system within Chinese medicine. Qigong exercises are designed to help you preserve your Jing, strengthen and balance the flow of Qi energy, and enlighten your Shen.


February 24th
Qi gong for Stress and Anxiety
While stress and anxiety are natural responses to modern life, they should not be a “constant” in your life. In this session, Maria Patrick, Certified Health Coach & Qi Gong Instructor, will help you transform your stress and anxiety into inner peace and tranquility. You will learn how to re-balance the Earth element within you, become present with your Heart Center, and build a protective “shield” against negative energy.

In this class you will:

  • Relax the Heart Center so you can experience the joy of life (some anxiety is normal, but it shouldn’t prevent you from doing what you want);
  • Clear out tightness and tension in the chest (sometimes all it takes is a few simple stretches);
  • Learn breathing exercises to bring your heart into present moment (you can use these whenever you need to reduce anxiety fast);
  • Clear stagnant energy with gentle Qi Gong flows (when your energy flows, joy and happiness are the natural result);
  • Fertilize your inner energy system  to grow a rich “internal garden” of tranquility;
  • Fortify a protective energy shield around you and clear out other people’s negative energy (taking on other people’s energy is natural, but we are never taught how to clear out the energy we don’t want); and
  • Cleanse and clear anxiety out of your entire system.



March 3rd
Qi gong for More Energy
Energy is that secret substance we all seek. Described as the “elixir of life”, energy – or “Qi” – is the vital essence that creates health, harmony, and well-being. Qi Gong can stimulate your own natural resources, effortlessly and naturally, just like the sunrise inspires the birds to sing and flowers to open.

In this class, Maria Patrick, Certified Health Coach & Qi Gong Instructor, will guide you in the following:

  • A series of warm-ups to invigorate your body, stimulate key pressure points, and awaken your life force;
  • Gentle stretches– to open the areas in your body that chronically hold tension and stress. By releasing stress, you will free up healing energy; and
  • Flowing movements to stimulate your whole system – putting every cell of your body in sync with nature and the world around you.



March 10th
Qi gong for Better Sleep
Sleep is the energy of life! In this session, you will learn healthy sleep habits for improving your energy, health and longevity. Certified Health Coach & Qi Gong Instructor – Maria Patrick – will help you discover ways to improve your sleep, feel more rested & increase your vitality.

In this class you will discover:

  • Stress clearing exercises to use at the end of the day;
  • Relaxation techniques to help you get deep rest;
  • Flowing movements to cultivate your Yin energy;
  • Healing sounds to do before bed to promote deep sleep; and
  • Stretches that will clear lines of tension.
