Integral Taiji and Qigong
Workshop | September 20 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | UC Botanical Garden
You are invited to participate in Integral Taiji & Qigong classes at the UC Botanical Garden. Our classes will focus on somatic, psycho-spiritual, ecological, and cosmological dimensions of taiji (tai chi) and qigong. We will practice standing meditation, walking meditation, the Microcosmic Orbit, Tai Chi Ruler, the Eight Treasures, cleansing the internal organs, embodying the elements, tai chi dance, push hands, the Yang style slow form, and more. Everyone is invited to participate, regardless of prior experience. Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and bring layers for warmth.
The class will be held indoors if it is raining.
