Qigong is the basis for Tai Chi, meditation in motion.
Qigong is an exercise that works down to the bones;
every joint is moved and massaged, every ligament,
tendon and sinew is nourished and relaxed.
All the organs and systems of the body are brought into harmony.The gentle movements help the heart to push the blood through the body to bring the needed nutrition from food, from the breath, (and from any supplement or medication).
The result is better digestion, and better health.
Toxins are released and eliminated. The organs are cleansed
and the result is a more vibrant happier you.
Qi pronounced chee, like in cheek, also spelled chi, means energy. Gong means practice work.
Qigong, in brief, means energy work.

History of PYNK Qigong
Pynk qigong was born in Philo, Mendocino County, California.
In the hills of the Holmes Ranch, where feminist women
were part of the "going back to the land" movement
of the 1970's. Borrowing money among themselves to
buy 20 acres, they settled down, bringing goats, chickens,
geese, and Janet's 10 year old daughter Bridget.
They all worked very hard with no electricity, except for a crank generator. The generator was only used to pump water up from the creek, to a 50 gallon holding tank, on the top of the small cabin, for gravity flow to the sink inside. Kerosene lamps and candles for light, and a two burner wood stove for heat and cooking. "Being in harmony with nature", took on a whole new meaning, and a whole lot of "chop wood haul water" was reality.
Janet continued to study with Sifu Nam Singh, at the
Dragon Tiger Mountain School in Sonoma, about 60 miles
south of her property in Philo.
She started teaching women only, and named her school
Po Yun Nei Kuan after the ancient White Cloud Temple
in Beijing. Now called Bai Yun Guan. It got its "chop",
when her daughter Bridget brought it back from China
in 1986. The name was changed to White Cloud Temple
School in 2012, as the classes were open to all serious
students in 1990.
Janet has studied with many teachers and various traditions.
