Introduction to Dragon's Way Qigong

Closed event. All proceeds support the Waldorf School of the Peninsula.

This workshop will offer you a deep dive into leveraging Qigong for your own vitality and sanity. You’ll leave refreshed, inspired to approach your health differently, and with a toolkit of Dragon’s Way Qigong movements you can practice on your own. Qigong (pronounced "chee-gong") is a traditional Chinese discipline used to heal and revitalize the body from inside out. A form of moving meditation, the exercises are simple to learn and accessible to most any level of physical ability.

We will focus in particular on how to leverage nature’s seasonal energies for our own healing. Join us if you are in need of some practical tools for managing stress, finding enough energy and bringing more balance into your life. Waldorf parents, it’s time for us to offer ourselves the same "head, heart, and hands" attention we ensure for our children. Qigong provides powerful and practical daily support for over-worked parents. Join us!

Lunchtime Dragon's Way Qigong

From Google to Ford, more and more corporate teams are using mindfulness and meditation in the workplace to improve resilience, focus, creativity, and overall health. (Here’s a 2015 HBR article that rounds up the major research-backed benefits.)

In four one-hour sessions, we’ll learn a set of simple Qigong meditation movements that add up to a 20-minute routine you can practice daily. Blending meditation with gentle movement, Qigong (pronounced “chee-gong”) is a traditional Chinese healing art used to revitalize the body, and calm the mind.

We’ll pay special attention to addressing the pain points facing those working in the tech industry:

  • Endless hours hunched in front of a backlit screen

  • Chronic stress

  • Constant multitasking

  • Fatigue and lingering aches and pains

  • Work/life balance
