Up to 50 students meet every Sunday at 1 p.m. for about two-hours. Instructors teach ZY qigong, an ancient Chinese art of mindful meditation and restoration. Used as a tool for reducing stress and tension, qigong cultivates energy (qi) through a combination of gentle movement, gong work, and focused breathing. ZY qigong has been known to be good for healing and developing health of the mind and the soul.
Alex Lazebnik at Inner Soul Yoga & Cycle
Grandmaster Xu Mingtang was an instrumental figure in bringing the ancient art of ZY qigong—a mindful practice that combines movement, breath, and meditation—back into the public limelight for the first time in thousands of years, drawing upon what he learned from his great-grandfather's proficiency in the healing arts and his grandmother's wu yi shamanism. Years later and more than a few countries away from the form's native Chinese birthplace, Alex Lazebnik discovered Mingtang's creation while in Ontario. Once he realized the effectiveness of ZY qigong, he traveled to China, Moscow, and Russia to learn from some of the form’s greatest instructors before eventually beginning his own practice. Today, he teaches levels 1 and 2 around the world, including at Inner Soul Yoga & Cycle's well-stocked facilities and in exceptionally long lines at the DMV.
