Description: Qigong is the study of energy (chi or qi).  It has been practiced in China for over 5,000 years and has many applications for health and wellbeing.  Spring Forest Qigong was developed by Master Chunyi Lin to provide an accessible version of this ancient practice. The exercises are gentle and can be done standing, sitting, or lying down. They support all aspects of health:  physical, emotional, psychological, mental, and spiritual.

Slow, deep, belly breathing is a powerful way to decrease stress and to activate your parasympathetic nervous system which promotes calmness and relaxation.
