Fri 5/19: noon PT: Qì Gōng workshop (AARP-CA)
When I had cancer, I started learning dayan (wild goose) qì gōng from Paul Li and Dr Bungkun Hu. In this last decade, I have been teaching qì gōng to foster the relaxation response in the face of challenges and/or systemic inequities. Currently, I am researching qì to address educational inequities for students.
Join me this Friday, 5/19: 12 – 1 pm PT for a free online qì gōng workshop through AARP California for APIDA Heritage Month. Registration required.
Open to all. No experience necessary. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Bring water and cultural humility.
“For Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month this May, join us for an opportunity to learn and celebrate the community’s tradition with regards to health and wellness: qigong (pronounced chee-gung). Professor Kathy Yep, a certified mindfulness facilitator and a practitioner of Dayan Qì Gōng, will provide a demonstration of Qì Gōng’s gentle, flowing movements and breathing technique. Qì Gōng is gentle and easy to learn and is suitable for all ages and physical conditions.Qì Gōng, a meditative practice of gentle stretching, movement and breathing, has shown the potential to lower stress and anxiety. Please consult your physician before beginning any new exercise regimen.
Please do not opt out of event-related emails, as you will be emailed a link to join the class via Zoom prior to the event.
