Chi Gung Class

Chi Gung is both an art and a science, and it can be adapted, directed, and used for any goal you desire. It is not a new path, but rather a means of going more deeply into whatever path you already walk. In this ongoing meditative, sacred and fun class we will learn to better generate, harness, and direct the natural energies of the mind, body, and soul, the goal of which is ultimately Freedom (enlightenment).

The practice of Chi Gung means energy work. There is some focus on the health of the physical body, but with the intention to exercise the mind's control over the body. It is, ultimately, an exercise for the mind, so as a side effect of the practice, one's health, vitality, longevity, and energy levels are drastically increased. Not only physical energy levels but more importantly mental and emotional energy levels are addressed getting to the root source of energetics of the body.

While each class is likely to involve some easy breathing exercises, gentle stretching, and moving meditation, no two classes will ever be exactly the same. The classes will be informative, and educational so that we may all learn ways to adapt the practice to our own specific goals. The discipline is meant to be practiced with love and reverence, and we will come to understand that how we practice is more important than what we practice. You will find the practice very restorative.

The instructor, Cory Hess, began practicing martial arts at an early age where he was introduced to Chi Gung, meditation, and Eastern philosophy. He is a Reiki Master/teacher and massage therapist who has taught yoga and tai chi for the past 12 years.
Chi Gung is far too deep to describe in the course of a short flyer, so please don't hesitate to call Cory with any questions: (239) 489-3494.
