A unique series of soothing & calming Qi Gong sequences designed to transform Stress & Anxiety into inner peace & deep relaxation.

Studies have shown that each year over 40 million people in North America suffer from Anxiety & Stress disorders and over 1 million employees are absent from the work place due to stress every day. Qi Gong, referred to as ‘Tao Yin’ or ‘Taoist Yoga’, is a powerful ancient Chinese practice based on the premise that the human body is an energy system.  It describes stress as blocked energy that turns into stagnation preventing the healthy flow of Qi [Life Force/Prana].  CALM is an exploration of Qi Gong tension-releasing stretches, graceful moving meditations and nature-inspired standing postures designed to clear this stress & tension.  This age-old magical practice offers practitioners the tools to cultivate clean fresh flowing Qi with a tranquil breath, relaxed body & a mind at peace.
