WHAT'S A QI NAP

A Qi Nap is a beautiful way to allow the Qi that you have generated during your session to further balance and harmonize with your entire body, mind and spirit. It is often preceded by either a physical practice or a guided meditative journey intended to activate your Qi for the purpose of healing and renewal.

TESTIMONIALS

Cheryl at LaJolla Cove 2019_edited_edited.jpg

Cheryl H.

Although I have a consistent daily Zhineng Qigong practice, I make every effort to attend ZQ retreats with Reyna and Dani because each one is unique and offers so much more than the chance to learn the techniques of the practice. No matter how hectic my life gets, I push the pause button and take time for retreat. It gives me the opportunity to relax, reconnect, and reset to the healing resonance of the Qi field. 

 

As a result, I've experienced a deepening of my capacity to transform my mind, body, heart and spirit.  And even though I have experienced these transformations myself and witnessed them in others many times, each time it happens I am filled with an amazing sense of awe and wonder. 

 

Both Reyna and Dani are skilled teachers who use their expertise to create a community of connection, compassion, love, joy and grace for all retreat participants.  I am deeply grateful for their dedication to the practice and willingness to share their gifts with others.

My journey learning and growing about Qi Gong started with Reyna about a decade ago. While the practice at first may seem like a type of physical exercise, I discovered its power as a beautiful foundation of peaceful mindfulness, calm and confidence that helps one navigate Life.

Commitment to qigong practice, study, and time learning from Qigong Masters is what makes Reyna such a unique teacher. She is empathetic, listens deeply, and offers insightful feedback to my questions about Zhineng Qigong and my life. I would definitely recommend learning Zhineng Qigong and/or receiving a Hun Yuan Qi therapy session from Reyna!

Practicing Qigong with Daniela is a uniquely inspired experience. She fills the room with her beautiful waves of positive, infectious energy-encouraging wisdom, and strenghtening support. What's more she provides an incredibly potent healing to each person at the end taht you can feel on a visceral level. I would fervently recommend Daniela's gift to everyone."

My practice keeps becoming deeper and more profound. Blockages are unblocking all over the place! I keep having deeper insights into my body and all the blockages and how and why they are connected. Your guiding words were beautiful and exquisite. Qigong helps me open to the sorrow, pain and grief which is then followed by peace and silence as some of that releases. I'm so thankful for Dani and Reyna.
