5 Animal Qigong | 6 Month Live Series
Learn the most ancient of all known Qigong forms: The Five Animal Frolic. Embody the power and mystery of these 5 animals to heal and strengthen the body, exercise the mind, and nourish the soul.
Created by Chinese medical doctor Hua To around 150 AD, this form is meant to exercise the body, remove stagnant Qi, strengthen the legs, open the joints, improve balance and coordination, build the kidney Qi, calm the heart Qi, smooth the liver Qi, invigorate the lung/immune Qi, and nourish the stomach Qi. It can be used as a form of 5 Element Qigong, or as a seasonal practice to harmonize with the environment. You will also learn some 5 Element Standing and Moving meditations to accompany these 5 animal forms.

This form is a bit more challenging than most Qigong you may have tried. It takes a little longer to learn, because there is footwork involved in many of the exercises, similar to Tai Chi. Nick provides variations to make many of the movements more accessible for people with mobility issues.
If you send us a request before the course starts, you can get a 50% refund, or a full credit towards a future course.
I can't bear the thought of my deer friends missing out on this training. Join me in Japan, Hawaii, and the Pacific Northwest to learn the Bear, Deer, Monkey, Tiger, and Crane.
