Qigong and Tai Chi trigger numerous health benefits. Tai Chi initiates the “relaxation response,” which in turn reduces heart rate and blood pressure and optimizes the delivery of oxygen and nutrition to the tissues. Qigong and Tai Chi coordinates and balances the right/left brain hemisphere dominance promoting deeper sleep, reduced anxiety and mental clarity. These are only a few of the positive health benefits of this exercise program.
Instructors: Jennifer Weiss is certified by the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi (IIQTC) and has also studied the Healing Tao system. Her other training includes Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, and Feldenkrais. Teaching allows Jennifer to combine her interests in movement, meditation, and conscious growth – she loves assisting people in awakening their innate healing abilities.
