Classes and Workshops



Sunday, September 22nd ~  9 to 11 a.m.

 Hawthorne Movement Center ~ $30 ($25 pre-registered)

Develop a personal practice for building your vital life essence.  We remove ourselves from the mind as focus and connect with our power to cultivate and maintain our energy body. We are less apt to succumb to illness/toxins when deeply grounded.  And as we develop the ability to ground ourselves more deeply, we create healthy boundaries.

  • Build Qi through powerful Standing Meditation
  • Practice a Series of held stances to harvest specific energies
  • Learn a selection of Qigong moving forms

PRE-REGISTER:  Send payment using PayPal to OR email me for my mailing address and send a check.  Payments received prior to September 16th will receive a $5 discount ($25 versus $30 at the door).  Please note that this studio is relatively small, so we are somewhat limited in attendees.


NOTE:  Classes & Workshops are taught at multiple skill levels, so drop-ins are always welcome.

Also, it looks as though the Qigong for Healing class is ‘a go’ at PCC Climb Center (near OMSI), as enough people have registered.  This will serve as a wonderful introduction for the practice.  To register, go to and find the Continuing Ed section.  The class CRN is 48023 – it runs from Thursday, September 26th through November 14th 12:30 to 1:30 pm.
