Ethel Lobrigas will be leading qigong and tai chi practices to strengthen our Guardian Qi to be more centered, supported and protected energetically. Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one’s mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. Tai chi, internal style martial art has its roots from qigong.

These practices will help cleanse physical tension, activate energetic pathways and junctions to engage the body to help process difficult emotions, summon a sense of peace in the face of adversity, and develop physical and emotional resilience needed to solidly weather challenging times.
