Qigong Life Course (energy ⬆️, tension ⬇️)
QiGong means ‘Skillful use of Life Energy’, and in theses courses you will explore and understand methods for increasing your energy internally to better respond to situations eternally. You will activate skills of intuition, participate in your own life design and employ meditations to tune up your quality of experiences and relationships.
