Full Bio & Programs
For all levels.
Ever wonder why, in spite of the miracles of modern medicine, more than three million Americans practice ancient healing exercises from China? Qigong is one of the world’s most popular and well researched methods to improve health and vitality. In the Coiling Silk style of qigong, you turn your body slowly on a stable axis—like unwinding a silk cocoon.
These exercises gently open and close the joints, improve posture and breathing, and stimulate the life force (qi) to flow without obstruction. As knotted energy dissolves and tense areas relax, the whole body develops resilient inner strength. This is an excellent practice for personal well-being, and a perfect complement to yoga, tai chi, or any sport. Learn a complete set of these enjoyable, meditative exercises and take home ways to continue improving day by day.
