Join Wen Wu School Portland in exploring Dayan, or Wild Goose Qigong, an ancient Chinese movement art developed to promote health, well-being and longevity. Qigong (pronounced "chee gung") is the practice of moving the body's "qi" or vital energy. It is considered one of the safest, most complete and most effective types of Qigong. Dayan Qigong is a safe and effective form of exercise for active vibrant people, the elderly and chronically ill. It can be modified and practiced in a seated position. With regular practice, students can experience improvements in energy, stamina, mobility, comfort and equanimity.
A long-practiced Chinese Taoist movement art, Wild Goose Qigong nurtures one's inner energy–qi–and restores a healthy mind and body. It consists of two sets of 64 movements that mimic the wild goose, a highly revered animal in classical Chinese symbolism. With regular practice one can learn to access qi for self-healing, restoring vital energy, and strengthening one's immune system to promote a healthy, balanced and long life.
This event is free with Lan Su membership or admission; no registration is required.
