Medical Qi Gong School
The Dragon Qi Gong School offers a collection of over 100 styles of Qi Gong that help the practitioner balance the opposing and complementary forces of Yin and Yang, balancing the flow of Qi within the body. Students learn both self-help exercises and Qi Healing techniques which help clear out toxic Qi from the body, regulate the flow of Qi, and gather Qi from the Earth, Nature and the Universe. The tools used to achieve this are posture, gentle movement, stillness, breath and mind moving Qi. Developing a compassionate heart remains at the center of all Qi Gong practice.
