  • 9:30 am - 10:30 am Zoom Qigong/Tai Chi Class


    Certified Instructor Janet Stewart Migliore will be teaching Qigong /Tai Chi to fellow meditators
    and practitioners of insight.  This is a beginner’s class.  All ages are welcome.

    Qigong (pronounced “chi-gong”) is a simplified Tai Chi style that focuses on individual movements rather than a slow flow of movements (which is Tai Chi).  These Qigong movements are meditative in nature, create Qi flow and should also adhere to Tai Chi principles.  Tai Chi falls under the umbrella of Qigong, and is considered a more complex type of Qigong.  It is simple and beautiful.  It is a set of individual movements for each movement’s health benefit.  Because of this, it is easy to learn, and very safe.
    Tai Chi is a set of learned movements in a set sequence.  Each movement set is made up of several “forms”.  Just as a paragraph is made up of sentences, so is a Tai Chi set made up of a string of individual forms in a prescribed order.  They are always in the same order.   
    I will teach the Yang Style 24 Form, which is very common in China.  The form unites us  all through a common repertoire of movements.  Slow and very beautiful.

    Janet Stewart-Migliore is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
