Overview of Meetings (in person and online)

Around Savannah, there are many opportunities to practice Qigong with SQC teachers and co-leaders most days of the week. An overview of our FREE class offerings appears below. The listed teacher typically leads a class or session, but may occasionally designate someone else to lead.

During the period that Covid-19 (“coronavirus”) remains a concern, many of our in-person practice sessions have been curtailed or suspended. In their place, new online offerings have been introduced. 

Comfortable clothing in which you can easily move is recommended.

Exercises and movements in SQC classes are gentle in nature. Beginners and first-timers are welcome at any class meeting. If you are new to Qigong and have any physical challenges or recent injuries, please arrive 10 min. before the hour and introduce yourself to the teacher. They will suggest modifications so that your practice can be beneficial and enjoyable. If standing practice presents a challenge, most exercises can be done while seated. (All participants are responsible for their own self-care in this respect.) 

In cases of inclement weather, special events, or during holiday weeks, sessions may be cancelled. Our Google calendar is frequently updated. You may also contact the indicated teacher directly. Teacher contact information appears following the schedule overview.
