Qigong (literally energy practice) is a system of healing developed in ancient China. The practice of gentle movements and meditations cleanses, fortifies, and circulates qi (life energy) throughout the physical and energetic body. Qigong can help reduce stress, enhance strength and vitality, foster mental tranquility, and offer harmony with nature.
Intro to Qigong: Experience the Web of Life
The deep interconnectedness between the physical-energy body and the universe is found through Qigong.
This specialized Qigong workshop guides you in how to integrate your energy directly with the web of life, as a way to relax and awaken the life force within. Through ancient Qigong practices – including a Health Dance (your own improvised qigong routine) – you tap into this connection to create a fully alive body and mind.
In this program:
- Experience deep interconnectedness
- Learn simple and powerful gentle movements to improve physical and energy sensitivity
- Revitalize the physical and energy body
- Do a self-massage to deeply nourish the body
- Start or build upon a home practice in Qigong

Restorative for the Spine
This is one of our Focused classes.
A Svaroopa-style class, Restorative for the Spine is based on core release and spinal decompression using precise alignments to open the body from the tailbone to the top of the spine. With the support of blankets, students are encouraged to relax into poses that release deep tension in and along the spine. Often this release quiets the mind, reduces pain, helps accelerate injury recovery and promotes better overall health. Restorative for the Spine is led by a certified Svaroopa yoga instructor.
Please note, this class is not suitable for women pregnant in their first trimester or students with organ transplant on immunosuppressant medications.
