Program Details

Qigong Levels 1-3


with Sophie Léger
May 23 / 9:00 AM - May 26 / 5:30 PM

4 full days


Qigong is a Chinese art of health that has been practiced for over two thousand years. A form of gentle, relaxing exercise, qigong strengthens joints, muscles, tendons, and bones, nourishes the internal organs, stimulates the circulation of energy in our body, and enhances mental clarity. Qigong not only maintains physical and mental well-being for healthy individuals but is an excellent way to gently introduce mobility and relaxation to persons who have physical challenges. Qigong is also used as a tool to build the foundation for sitting meditation.  The program will introduce participants to several basic practices of Daoist Qigong, which include self-massage, stretching, tendon-changing, and standing postures in the Xiantianwujimen and Yiquan lineages held by Dr. Eva Wong, and will include instruction in sitting meditation. The weekend is offered as a complete program, and is a pre-requisite for attending Level 3. Participants must attend all the sessions if they want to be able to continue with more advanced levels.


 


Sophie Léger is one of very few individuals authorized by Dr. Eva Wong to teach her Daoist Qigong lineages, and she has offered levels 1-2 and 3 throughout North America and Europe.


A student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche since 1990, Sophie has also been a certified meditation instructor and teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition for over 15 years and served as Director of the Montreal Shambhala Meditation Centre from 1996 until 1999. She is currently sitting on the Shambhala Kalapa Executive as Director of Multilingual Development.
