The purpose of this workshop is to make teens more aware of the positive effects of Qigong on health and athletic prowess. Nowadays, teens feel inundated with everyday pressure of school, family, and other stresses that they turn to alcohol, drugs, and sex as ways of alleviating anxiety. Teen Qigong will introduce Qigong as a healthy, natural way of managing stress, while providing simple exercises that can be easily implemented as daily routines to promote health and improve athletic skills. The various Qigong exercises will include teachings from Dr. Chow and other Qigong masters.
