The Path Unfolds
Qi Gong is about achieving balance, finding that timeless space within us where our true nature resides. By letting go of the distractions of mind and the endless distraction of emotional disharmony, we find ourselves stepping onto the path of destiny, manifesting our true purpose in life.
This Qi Gong is easily accessible, consisting in this class of a series of gentle movements that coordinate body, breath and intention, and is suitable for all fitness levels. It is an internal art, which means that what is seen on the exterior is but a suggestion of the depths experienced within. We focus on the subtle senses, opening up that inner awareness that is so often overlooked in the modern world.
I will guide you in exploring the geography of the Traditional Chinese energetic universe, including:
- the three Dantiens: body, heart and mind
- the rivers of energy flow that we know as the acupuncture meridians
- the 5 elements, their correspondence to our internal anatomy and emotional life
and so much more…Yin/Yang fish

Qi Gong in Stanley Park
The 2023 Outdoor Season is over. Check back in May for the 2024 season!
Experience taking a Qi Gong class in the best possible way, in person and outdoors! This summer’s outdoor Qi Gong series starts on Thursday, June 15th at 10am in The Hidden Bamboo Grove in Vancouver’s own Stanley Park. Classes are scheduled for Thursday mornings for the rest of the summer.
This will be an hour long class focusing on building our “qi muscles” and connecting with the natural world. Physically, it is a gentle practice, accessible to all fitness levels. The emphasis is on opening up our awareness of nature and the energetic world that surrounds us, enhancing our vitality and our ability to focus and to project Qi into our environment.
Practicing Qi Gong surrounded by nature is the best way to experience this fundamentally nature based practice.
If you are interested in joining the class, please let me know by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or text (604-600-3756) so I can put you on the list to notify about weather related cancellations (an inherent aspect of outdoor classes).
The cost will be $25 per class, payable in cash or etransfer at the beginning of each class.
The Hidden Bamboo Grove is just to the north of where Lagoon Drive intersects with Park Lane (near the foot of Nelson St.) Here is a link to a google map which shows the location as a red pin. If you have any trouble finding the location, please call the above number before the class.
