Discovering Qi Gong

Lee Holden first discovered the healing power of Qi Gong and tai chi after experiencing injuries that nearly sidelined his Varsity Soccer career at the University of California, Berkeley. Impressed at how these ancient practices healed his body and allowed him to return to playing, he made their study a priority. Today he is an internationally known instructor in meditation, tai chi, and Qi Gong, as well as a licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, and author.  His popular library of Qi Gong DVDs have made him a regular fixture on American Public Television and over 105 PBS stations throughout the U.S.and Canada. Lee's unique Qi Gong programs have been seen in over 50 million households. Lee’s expertise and down-to-earth teaching style have made him a popular speaker and workshop facilitator. Lee is a graduate of U.C., Berkeley, with a BA in Psychology.  Lee, a Doctor of Chinese Medicine, is a graduate of Five Branches Institute in Santa Cruz, a leading acupuncture college in the U.S.  For more about Lee and his   teaching schedule, please visit his website

Friday 6:00-9:00pm.  Intro to Qi Gong: Learn the Art of Effortless Power:
Qi Gong Mirrors the movements of Nature, using stretching, flowing, and spiraling movements to remove blockages in the body's energy system. Qi Gong creates the conditions for life force energy, or Qi, to flow abundantly through the body, giving practitioners more energy, less stress, and promoting homeostasis and healing through the entire body. Originally developed into over 3,500 different styles in ancient China by healers, martial artists, and monks, Lee has distilled this esoteric information into simple practices that anyone can use to create more health, longevity, and happiness in their lives. 

Saturday 1:00-5:00pm. Qi Gong for the Three Treasures:  
Tap into the treasures within!  Known as Jing, Qi, and Shen, the three treasures relate to the energy of body, emotions, and consciousness.  In this workshop, the focus will be on integrating these 3 primal sources of energy through flowing movements, rhythmic stretching, and energetic meditations.

Tuition: $95 per individual day or $150 for the full weekend.
