Episode Description

Qigong is a powerful energetic practice that boosts circulation, enhances focus and creativity, and supercharges your health and longevity. Dating back to ancient China, qigong is the oldest therapeutic modality in Chinese medicine. Covering the medical, martial and spiritual realms, qigong exercises strengthen vitality and can uproot health ailments, both chronic and slight. Moving from energetic imbalance and toxicity to harmony and purity with qigong and other principles from The Power of Presence can drastically improve your quality of life.
