Chi-Gung is a centuries-old form of meditative exercise originating in China that grounds the mind in the body, increases self-awareness, builds internal energy, and develops a flexible body physically and spiritually.
Chi-gung techniques include deep systemic breathing, stretching body movements, focusing the mind, and vowel sounds. Pat will lead you through warm-up, stretching, centering, and filling with energy and affirmation. You may stand or sit as needed, so the class is suitable for people with physical limitations or illness.
Chi-gung practice can diminish physical pain, stress, depression and isolation. Because it tones the liver, it relieves the effects of stress and supports your resistance to illness. Come as you are—stiff, limber, happy, sad, clumsy, nimble.
Instructor Pat Gottschalk is a member of First Universalist, has studied with several Chi-gung instructors, including Kenneth Cohen and Master Chunyi Lin, a highly regarded teacher in the Twin Cities. Pat is a certified Shiatsu practitioner (including Reiki, Lymph Massage and Cranio-Sacral therapy) with a 18-year practice in Minneapolis.
