Coiling Silk Qigong: Dissolve Tension, Renew Vitality
September 22-27, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, Lenox, MA

Coiling Silk, Chan Si, is one of the most beautiful and enjoyable styles of qigong. Lovely circular movements, like the turning of a silk cocoon on a spindle, unwind energetic knots and dissolve areas of tension. They also gently open and close the joints, improve posture and breathing, and stimulate the life force, qi, to flow without obstruction.

In this week-long program you will:

  • Learn all 20 coiling silk techniques—the legacy of Ken’s teacher Madame Gao Fu.

  • Practice “walking the circle,” an incredibly grounding and energizing exercise modeled on the dynamic spiraling power of the mythic dragon.

  • Explore qigong seated meditations and Taoist healing imagery.

  • Return to stillness and realize unity with nature.

Return home feeling renewed from qigong’s healing benefits.

All inclusive price includes lodging, gourmet buffet style meals, optional daily yoga and other activities, and the beautiful Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts.


Animal Frolics Qigong
Strength of the Bear, Balance of the Crane
