Qigong & Meditation - Mon & Wed @ 8am EST


Our open group virtual classes for Qigong & Meditation take place twice per week and are free and open to the public.

Qigong & Meditation
Schedule: Mondays & Wednesdays from 8:00-9:00am EST
Location: Zoom Platform
Coach: Joel Massicot

Description: Cultivate peace of mind and tranquility by learning some basic techniques of meditative practices for aligning mind, body and soul with Joel Massicot.

The class starts off with a Chinese practice called Qigong, an internal system that helps a person become one with their life force energy. Many physical issues stem from mental and emotional stress that create imbalances within the energy centers of the body. Qigong practice helps us nurture self-healing by managing the stressful emotions that prey on the mind when our chi is not regulated or balanced. Through it, you can build a deeper awareness and efficiency of breath to support and help build stamina around the respiratory system.

We then end the class with mindful meditation to help the practice solidify a more grounded experience creating momentum and inspiration in a person’s daily routine.

What you will work on:
– Pranayama Meditation
– Movement Exercises (Tai Chi)
– Controlled Breathing
– Body Alignment
– Qi (Chi) Awareness

Eligibility: Class is open to all students. New students are welcome any time.
