Join us this month for a session with Trish Kean on Shaking Qigong. Trish has been a licensed massage therapist since 1998 and has had a daily Qigong practice since 2005. In 2005, just after her FSHD diagnosis, she joined Master Zhongxian Wu’s lifelong training program for Qigong. Since then she has learned many Qigong forms and Qi healing techniques. In 2011 she became a certified teacher of the Wu and Hidden Immortal lineages and has taught several different Qigong classes.
What is Shaking Qigong?
Shaking helps us to open up our joints or energy gates and meridians allowing the free flow of Qi (energy) in our body. It is a gentle practice that anyone can do standing or sitting. During shaking we connect to the universal energies and harmonize with the Universal Qi. It is both restorative and centering, helping us to bring our mind back to our body and release stress.
For people living with FSHD who are interested in exercise and fitness, we meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month at 12:00 pm (noon) U.S. Eastern Time. Come dressed for exercise and have on hand any safety and assistive devices you need. Not every exercise is appropriate or safe for every individual, so please use your best judgement and consult your health care provider.
Please come prepared with a stable chair or stool (back of chair is optional). You can also choose to bring light weights ranging from 1lb to 5lb.
