Qi Gong Exercise (I Chin Ching) HAW112 I Chin Ching or Yijin jing roughly translates to the “change of tendon and muscle.” The idea is that by tensing your muscles through static holds/stretches and dynamic motions you can build stronger, more flexible muscles and tendons, while achieving better balance and coordination. That’s a lot of promise for just 49 exercises! Many of the Qi Gong exercises are similar to yoga postures and these can be done by anyone. No experience or uniform is required - just wear comfortable clothes. Instructor: R. Barrera Tuition: $59 W 6 sessions
