9:30 A.M — 3:00 P.M.

Come learn QiGong (or deeper your practice) on a beautiful mountain plateau ranch in Washougal overlooking the Gorge. Instructor Raynna Myers weaves Classical Chinese Medicine with modern Sports Science together to inform how our kinetic chains, fascia network, breath & spiritual potential all interact and how intentional QiGong practice can build toward wholistic health — mind, body & spirit.

We will explore a feast of information and experience. We will be learning to wonder at the innate wisdom of our bodies and how to access and accentuate this body wisdom for greater strength, flexibility, mobility, pain relief and peace, all in a stimulating natural environment.

We will do this through instruction, demonstrations, opportunities for reflection, covering QiGong forms, breath work, meditations, and coaching. All of this while we are surrounded by supportive community and the life-giving outdoors (with shelter if it rains :) )

No prior experience needed, all fitness & knowledge levels welcomed and encouraged to join. We're excited to see you there!

Arrival: 9:30 A.M.
Settle in, enjoy the mountain morning. Hot tea, water, and snacks will be available

Session One: 10 A.M - 12 P.M.
We will enjoy the wonder of how our body is here to serve us through intention and learning Meridian QiGong to begin opening and flowing, utilizing the power of our element of water and growing in awareness of the function of our kidneys, as the seat of our lungs and the nourisher of our homonal balance and reproductive organs, cultivating our sexual vigor, releasing fears, and bringing in courage.
This will be a time set aside to support you in releasing the old and bringing in the new. I'm with you in this journey and I'm eager to facilitate rest, support, and community—empowering you towards wholeness.

Lunch: 12:00 - 1:30 P.M
Healthy lunch at noon (catered or bring your own, choose at checkout) 

Enjoy community or a quiet walk on the trail!

Session Two: 1:30 - 3:30 P.M
As we journey deeper into our practice we will continue opening energetic pathways and feel the life-changing power that flows from taking a little bit of time and care of our mind, body, and spirit. We will continue to unfold the element of water according to Chinese Medicine and Modern Sports Science and experience how it is associated with specific organs and emotions and ultimately the entirety of our health, which involves and impacts our relationship with ourselves and others.
