Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention. Five Animal Sports is part of that classic Chinese health tradition. As we experience seasonal weather changes our internal energy can get out of balance, leading to discomfort and ailments. Using the natural spirit and graceful movements of the iconic five animals, each representing one of the five seasons of the year (bird/autumn, bear/late summer, ape/summertime, tiger/spring, and deer/winter), we prepare our bodies for the changes of the oncoming season. No experience necessary, just wear comfortable clothing and flexible footgear, or tread on the grass with bare feet for maximum Qi exchange. Angela Laughingheart has been teaching Tai Chi and Qigong since 1998.
