Wudang Qigong   4-8 hours

We will work several Taoist qigong exercises that have been passed down through the Wudang Dragon Gate system. These are effective for increasing strength in the body and for opening the meridians to increase the flow of qi in the body. The eventual goal is to increase the flow, quantity, and then the quality of one’s energy with health and longevity in mind.
