About the Wild Goose Qigong
The Dayan (Wild Goose) Qigong set was developed by a Chinese monk 1,700 years ago. The set is based on the movements of the wild goose. It is structured in a way that enhances the circulation of Qi, the vital life force within the body. Continuous practice of Dayan Qigong can help improve flexibility and balance and strengthen the body and its immune system. It can be helpful in treating disorders of the nervous, digestive, circulatory, urinary systems, osteoarthritis, and stress. The first set of the 18-week Dayan Qigong program is offered three times a year with each class consisting of basic stretches, acupressure self-massage, meditation techniques, and a 64-movement form.
The second set of the Dayan qigong set is offered twice a year. Students wishing to take the second set must have at least one year of training in the first set.
