The Ancient Wisdom of Tai Chi and Qigong for Mood, Stress, and Sleep

For all levels.

Open a new world of breath, energy, and movement with tai chi and qigong, uncovering their power to enhance mood, improve sleep, and decrease stress. Rooted in ancient wisdom, these practices are designed to cultivate balance, strength, and calm. How does this approach work? A recent NIH-funded study using Yang Yang’s tai chi and qigong program demonstrated significant positive effects on sleep and anxiety. When you improve sleep, anxiety, strength, and balance, you also see an improvement in your overall sense of well-being.

In this program, learn new ways of thinking as you explore how to

  • Move slowly, but with intention and power
  • Create and structure energy
  • Improve your quality of life by addressing daily challenges in new and gentle ways.

With humor and care, Master Yang guides you through a set of qigong and tai chi meditations and movement practices that can easily fit into your busy life and promote positive change. The exercises he teaches can neutralize stress, anxiety, and physical pain, transforming challenges and adversity into improved vitality and happiness. Both novices and the physically active can benefit from Master Yang’s wise instruction.

“In the workshop I learned techniques to help me with balance, sleep, core agility, and stretching. It changed everything.” – John W.
