Qigong with Director Eric Siegel
Workshop | January 19 | 10-11 a.m. | UC Botanical Garden
Qigong (pronounced cheegong) is a form of meditative exercise with repeated movements, gently stretching the core and limbs and building body awareness. We will practice some standing meditation intended to help you feel and circulate qi (the Chinese word that describes life force), a set of exercises called silk reeling and some specific walking techniques that build balance, flexibility, and strength. No previous experience is required. People with disabilities are welcome, as we can adapt the exercises for sitting, supported standing or standing. Eric Siegel, in addition to being the Gardens Director, has been practicing Chinese martial arts and qigong for over 15 years.
