Selected Video Resources

Teachers in the Savannah Qigong Collaborative (SQC) bring a diversity of experiences and practices to their work. Their sources and traditions include:

  • IIQTC (Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi), based in Santa Barbara, CA
  • Long White Cloud Qigong, based in Auckland, New Zealand
  • The Lotus Health Institute, based in Blacksburg, VA

SQC teachers often attend each other’s classes and workshops. This means that community classes will usually include exercises from more than one Qigong school or tradition. The benefits of Qigong flow not from a particular style or a “right” way to practice. Rather, the power of Qigong rests in a sincere intention to cultivate wellness, and in persistence with a regular Qigong practice that resonates with your own temperament, abilities, and circumstances.

The six (6) YouTube videos shared below introduce some of the themes of basic Qigong practice. These are just a sample of approaches and applications for Qigong in daily life. Videos are useful to introduce Qigong, and can support a home practice. However, SQC teachers encourage regular attendance at our free community classes. There you will receive support from a teacher and encouragement from others as you develop a personal Qigong practice.
