Eric – QiGong

Eric Imbody has studied 31 forms of Tai Chi and Qigong over the last 28 years, including Primordial Qigong, five Animal Frolics, Tai Chi Chih and Hua Healing Sounds.He feels blessed to have had the opportunity to train with American Qigong Master Ken Cohen.  Eric takes a lighthearted approach to teaching. He encourages his students to play as they become familiar with specific forms.  He will frequently ask, “How do we apply these lessons we learn to our lives?”  Using a principle such as wu wei (only using the effort that is required, and no more) Eric often reminds students to conserve chi and use it wisely.  Eric teaches throughout the Denver area and sits on the Board of Directors of the National Qigong Association.
