Tai Chi Easy, Seven Precious Gestures Qigong, and the Six Healing Sounds.
Tai Chi Easy consists of a sequence of 5 movements, integrating the upper and lower body with a slow, meditative walk. The seven precious gestures is a beautiful ancient Daoist practice that supports internal reflection and a deep relaxed healing state. When practicing the six healing sounds, we use breath and voice to create vibrational healing energy for the body.
