The Northern Dipper Style
Our technique is also called Polestar Qigong, a reference to the North Star, Polaris. There is nothing special about the North Star itself, other than that it occupies space over (and close to) the earth's rotational axis and magnetic pole. It appears not to move while the rest of the stars move around it. This is a metaphor for the still point within, as well as a reference point for the earth's magnetic field lines, both of which are significant in qigong practice. Northern Dipper Qigong includes gentle movements that stretch and open the spine. In this class you will learn about essence; breath and mind; and physical and energetic alignment.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all classes will be held online until further notice. To the left is our regular instruction schedule, which will resume when it is safe to do so. Contact Arthur to sign up for online classes and get started on Zoom.
