Cardiovascular Disease
Cognitive functioning
Health maintenance
Respiratory functioning
Sleep disturbance

You will learn correct posture, breathing techniques, and mental focus. The slow, stretching movements of most exercises can be easily adapted for all age groups and abilities.

Qigong for Cancer Recovery
Qigong is an effective complementary therapy for cancer patients and has been incorporated into many treatment programs nationwide. Regular practice can help reduce physical symptoms experienced by cancer patients including pain, numbness, dizziness, fatigue, inflammation, lymphedema, and poor cognitive function. Qigong accelerates oxygen distribution, increases circulation in the body, and promotes efficiency of cell metabolism and tissue regeneration. Patients who performed qigong daily showed an increased survival rate and increased quality of life scores.
