Celebrate World Tai Chi and Qigong Day with us on Saturday, April 26th 2014!
The Namaste Healing Center joins this world-wide celebration by holding a free Qigong class @ 7:30pm


Qigong training is an excellent way to maintain health and vitality, heal your body, calm your mind, and reconnect with your spirit.

Join millions of people who have learned and practiced qigong in its many thousand-year history. Some turtle-shell artifacts conclusively show the art was important at least 7,000 years ago. The Book of Changes (I Ching) is probably the first Chinese text related to Qi and it introduced the concept of the natural energy powers: Heaven (Tien), Earth (Di), and Human (Ren). About 2,000 years ago The "Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine" systematically described qigong practice.

While commonly practiced for its health benefits, its underlying philosophy and practice deal with many more aspects of human life, such as the raising of consciousness, developing increased awareness and resilience, and helping bring the human experience to the fullest potential. With consistent practice, qigong practitioners become sensitive to the internal energy flow and operations of their bodies at the physical, energetic, and spiritual levels, which in turn helps to reveal one's place within nature's creation and oneness. Qigong exercises permit us to build up resistance to imbalances and blockages affecting our qi. This sensitivity aids the integration of our complementary yin and yang internal forces within the universal order. Through qigong training, we learn how false this separation of body, mind, and spirit is, as we come to understand qi as the underlying force that integrates the relationship between them and is the essence of our expression and existence.
