About QiGong

QiGong movements are synchronized with the breath as a way to relax the body, create flow, and balance energy. Qi is energy, and the movements of QiGong are ways to cultivate this life-force energy within you. Furthermore, the practice allows the body to restore and connect to its natural state of health and harmony.

Meet the Instructor

Yesica Barrera is a certified Holden QiGong teacher.  Holden QiGong is a modern style under the umbrella of Medical Qigong. The movements and techniques utilized in this practice come from the 5 Element Flows and are designed to keep the Qi flowing and balanced for optimal health and well being.

Yesica also holds a 3rd degree black belt in Jin Sei Ryu Karate-do, and has been training in karate for over 20 years. She likes to complement her practices and harmonize the yang energy of Karate with the yin energy of QiGong. She has taught karate for almost 10 years to all ages, and is now expanding her teaching skills in QiGong.
