Why Take Qigong Classes?
Qigong is designed for self healing and self care. These classes give you at least 1 hour a week to focus on YOURSELF! You will begin to feel more grounded, centered and calm. It is from this place that we are the most efficient. By giving yourself the freedom to take care of yourself you will be able to be more present with family, friends and colleagues.
Classes are offered in a 5 week series. This approach is designed to give you the intellectual understanding of the systems and experience how energy feels within those systems. The 1 week break is given in between each series to continue to practice and integrate the energy into your physical body. Then, either re-take the series or continue to the next series. This style allows you to go at your own pace and gradually build the internal energy system.
The energetic body is not separate from the tangible physical body but it is more subtle. By waking up the internal energy system we are allowing our physical body to function more efficiently. Benefits include better sleep, improved digestion, hormone regulation, more stable mood, reduced stress levels and an overall healthier lifestyle.
Jackie is a certified qigong teacher in the following forms: Yi Ren Qigong, Hands of the 18 Luohan, 8 Treasures and Muscle Tendon Changing or Jing Rou. She has been in private practice as an acupuncturist and Chinese herbal medicine practitioner for over 16 years. She has also been studying and teaching qigong for over 12 years. Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and qigong are all derived from the same theory and foundation. Jackie will be incorporating her knowledge and experience of Chinese medicine into the classes to provide students with a deeper understanding of the medicine and the foundation of qigong.
Foundational Qigong Series – Part 1 This series is designed to allow students to experience how the energy feels. First, we begin to feel the energy between our hands. Then, we direct the energy internally and learn to access the major energy centers within the body (very similar to the chakras). We will also learn how to ground the energy and relax the mind. This series is designed for beginners although advanced practitioners are always welcome. If you have taken this series it is still extremely beneficial to re-take the classes and review the fundamentals creating a stronger foundation.
Foundational Qigong Series – Part 2 Pre-requisite: Foundational Qigong Part 1. In this 5 week series we build on what we felt and learned in part 1 and activate what is called the small universe or microcosmic orbit. This equates to our autonomic nervous system which is the part of the nervous system that influences the function of our internal organs. It is responsible for the “flight or fight” response and “rest and digest” therefore keeping this system balanced will help to reduce stress and anxiety and promote overall better health.
Intermediate Qigong – Part 1 and 2 Pre-requisite: Foundational Qigong Part 1 and 2. The energy system needs a foundation to go deeper. The Intermediate Qigong Series delves into the functions of the internal organs and the locations of the meridians or energetic channels connected to the organs. We will use specific mudras and movements to activate and move the energy through the organs and meridians which will enhance the function of each organ and its relationship to the entire body. In Chinese medicine and Qigong there is the understanding that the organs house emotions and virtues creating the mind-body connection. In this series we will learn how to more easily navigate and transform our own emotions first through an intellectual understanding and then through movement of Qi through specific organs and meridians.
Intermediate Qigong – Part 3 and 4 Pre-requisite: Foundational Qigong and Intermediate Qigong Part 1 and 2. Part 3 and 4 will focus on the extraordinary vessels. These vessels link the internal organ systems and meridians. Working with the extraordinary vessels helps to support our internal organ function and at the same time increase the energy reserves. By building up our reserves we are able to stay young and healthy.
Advanced Qigong – Pre-requisite: Foundational Qigong Part 1 and 2. Those who have taken Intermediate Qigong will get more out of these forms but it is not a requirement. Advanced Qigong will incorporate internal qi activation with physical movement. Foundational Qigong is the only requirement to start these classes however the deeper your understanding of the internal organ systems and the extraordinary vessel systems the more you will experience the true energy flow of these forms. Advanced Qigong will combine internal qi activation with stretching and movement through the following forms: Muscle Tendon Changing (Jing Rou), 8 Treasures and Hands of the 18 Luohan.

Thai Massage Trainings: Traditional Floor Thai and Table Thai Massage
Thai massage is an ancient, energy-based healing system that combines acupressure, reflexology, and assisted yoga postures. Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions, and
the recipient remains clothed during a treatment. The client’s body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. The practitioner uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to create movement on the body of the recipient. In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and physical and mental well being. Thai massage is also a spiritual discipline in that it incorporates the practices of mindfulness (breath awareness) and loving kindness (focused compassion). These techniques, when shared by practitioner and client, help bring the treatment session to a focused and deep level.
Classes are taught in both Traditional Floor Thai, as well as Table Thai adaptations for integrating into Deep Tissue & Swedish massage sessions.
