It can increase strength, flexibility, balance and circulation;
positively impact the bodies cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous and immune systems;

Qigong means cultivating a skill with life force energy.
It is an ancient healing art, Daoist in origin, estimated to be about 4,000 years old.
It developed alongside acupuncture as an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine.
We start with a phase of gentle warm ups to invigorate all the joints and tissues in the body, increasing circulation and blood flow.
Then we stretch the body and fascia more broadly to open and activate qi flow through the meridian channels and internal organs. After this we do purging techniques to clear stagnant qi (release tension).
Qigong was recommended to Layla Ward in 2019 as a way to heal a chronic condition. She is a student of Nick Loffree a protege of internationally recognized qigong master and doctor of Chinese medicine, Lee Holden. She is excited to be sharing the many benefits of qigong with the Park City community. Layla holds an MS in Gerontology from the University of Utah, with an emphasis in adult education & developmental growth in the second half of life.
