Join us on Tuesday and Thursday evenings by the Chinese Pavilion in Victoria Park, Riversdale; the perfect backdrop for our summer Qigong in the Park classes! We will meet in Victoria Park near the Chinese pavilion that is directly south of Spadina Drive between Avenue C and D.
Qigong is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that coordinates body posture and movement, breathing and meditation. People practice qigong throughout China and worldwide for recreation, exercise, relaxation, preventive medicine, self-healing, alternative medicine, meditation, self-cultivation and training for martial arts.
What Do I Need To Bring?

Qigong is best practiced in bare feet.
You do not require a yoga mat, but you may bring water and sunscreen.

What Will We Be Learning?
Each week we will practice a different Qigong form. Don’t worry if you don’t know any Qigong. We will walkthrough the entire form each night so you can come to one class or all the classes without falling behind. Here is the list of forms that we will study for the upcoming weeks.
