Nourishing Ourselves Wisely with Qigong – An Introductory Series

Come join us for a 4-week relaxing Qigong class series. Qigong is an embodied form of meditation, which acts on all aspects of the body, mind, spirit, and life force. This series is a wonderful way to nourish ourselves as we address what’s happening in the wider world, as well as help us prepare for the upcoming High Holy Days.

I’ll be teaching several methods to support harmonizing all aspects of our beings. They combine movement with an alive stillness. These methods are helpful for people looking for more energy and vitality; less anxiety and worry; more clarity; and increased ease/sense of relaxed wellbeing. They can also be used to support other healing modalities we are using for specific health conditions. They are all based in ancient Chinese healing and wisdom traditions, and are from the Yuan Gong lineage, as taught by Yuan Tze.

These methods can be modified for people of all abilities. They can be done in sitting, lying, and standing postures. They are simple, enjoyable, and effective.

This class series is suitable for people with NO Qigong experience, or who have studied in other Qigong traditions.

Cost: this is a benefit for Kehilla! Sliding scale: $90-$160. Best to pay up front; however you may bring a check (payable to Kehilla) or cash for the full series to the first class.

Please note: this is not a drop-in class. People are asked to sign up for the series of 4 classes.

Some cushions and chairs will be provided, however you are also welcome to bring your own if you prefer.

A little about Diana Lion:
Diana has been a Kehilla member for many years. She lived with severe chronic illness from ~2005-2010. After trying many wonderful modalities, she healed herself primarily through using methods from this particular lineage (the ones that will be taught in this series, as well as others).

She has studied with Yuan Tze since 2009. She had previously done 15 years of other Qigong practices with other teachers. She has been involved in teaching the healing arts for her entire adult life. She has completed 10 years of teacher training, and is formally credentialed to teach Yuan Gong by her Grandmaster.

She lives in Oakland, and teaches this work in group and individual settings. She is extremely grateful to have the capacity to offer others these deep practices. Although they are deep, she loves offering them in a playful way!
