The Eight Shakes Qigong

We are proud to offer this class by martial arts master David Wei in the traditional Chinese Qigong methods called "The Eight Shakes". Emotional trauma is normally addressed in one of two ways: Through the mind or through the body. Qigong works directly through the body in order to influence the mind. This Chinese method of working with emotional trauma has been used for thousands of years. This class assists us in processing emotional discomfort through moving, shaking, and massaging our bodies.March 13, 2021 1-3pm PST (11am-2pm HST • 3-6pm EST) $80 ($50 by March 1) ~ enter code traumaqigong30)
