The Qigong of the Animals (QOTA) draws on qigong animal forms, combining these movements with breathing, posture awareness, and visualization to shift the nervous system from the fight, flight, or freeze response to the relaxation and rejuvenation response. The program draws on current research and writing in the fields of neuropsychology as well as somatic therapy.

This two-hour program guides attendees through practices which seek to improve tension, mobility, flexibility, agility, balance, and joyfulness.

Making Qigong & Tai Chi Trauma-Informed Practices

All practice is not trauma-informed, but yours can be!

Join instructor, Brian Trzaskos PT LMT CSCS CMP MI-C, for the transformative 2-hour interactive presentation, Making Qigong & Tai Chi Trauma-Informed Practices

The National Council on Behavioral Health estimates that 90% of all people have experienced significant trauma at least once in their lives. Trauma, whether psychological, emotional, or physical has been definitively linked to significantly increased rates of chronic diseases including COPD, Heart Disease, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, anxiety, and depression. Past trauma experiences play a pivotal role in a person’s capacity to fully and freely engage in life.

Qigong & Tai Chi are often touted as more gentle and holistic paths to healing, but are they truly more trauma-informed in and of themselves? Not necessarily, and it’s been shown that mindfulness practices such as Qigong & Tai Chi can at times cause re-traumatization in certain individuals.

So, how can we help?
