Learn a complete qigong wellness routine and awaken your inner animal spirit with qigong expert Ken Cohen.

Created by the second century doctor of Chinese medicine, Hua Tuo, the Animal Frolics are the oldest healing exercises in the world and the standard against which other qigong methods are measured.

Discover gentle yet dynamic exercises that are meditation in motion and connected to the Taoist quest for longevity, health, and peace. Learn a complete qigong wellness routine, based on the rooted strength of the Bear, the balance of the Crane, the suppleness of the Monkey, the grace of the Deer, and the power of the Tiger.

By practicing these ancient postures and movements, we awaken an ancient part of ourselves and the Paleolithic wisdom of our hunter-gatherer ancestors. We find the spirit of the animals within, and, like them, learn how to connect to the healing power of nature. Although practice oriented, there is also time for discussion of qigong philosophy and an introduction to exciting research that shows how and why qigong improves health.

No previous experience is necessary; beginners and all levels are welcome.
