About Qigong

1 hour live-streamed class

level: beginner friendly, all-levels

Medical Qigong, a path for  freedom from fear, suffering, and depression, 
is also "Effective for Health and Longevity."

Medical Qigong will improve your life on all levels. During the workshop you will learn to apply the philosophical underpinnings of: living in the present; experiencing love; expressing gratitude; accepting your power to heal, and realizing that all is well daily.  What can be wrong with that?  Plus there is more.

Om Prakash's unique addition to Four Minute Fitness and Medical Qigong is an inspirational explanation of how one can apply the very same principles to achieving one's goals and improving one's life-work. In his book,  Life, Work and Spirituality, Om Prakash focuses on the concepts taught in Four Minutes Fitness and Eastern Philosophy and explains, in detail, how you can use them to make your life better.

This workout is excellent for Teachers, Laborers, Office Workers, Drivers and people with high powered jobs that require a lot of travel or movement, and people with jobs that require very little movement. It is good for everyone. The best thing is that you can do parts of it as many times as you like during the day.  

Om Prakash John Gilmore is a long time practitioner of Tai-chi, Qigong, meditation, and martial arts. At the age of 14 he began to study Tae Kwondo and later Shurinryu and Aikido.  In 1998 after a one and one half year study he received his Reiki Master Teacher Certification. A few years later Om Prakash became a Certified Reflexologist and Massage Therapist. Since 1998 Om Prakash has been working, through alternative methods, to help people reduce stress, increase health and flexibility, and enhance their spirituality through Eastern Practices.

Om Prakash attended University of Creation Spirituality in Oakland, CA. He graduated with a D. Min. in Work and Spirituality. His dissertation focused on understanding the internalization of oppression and a dominator mindset, and how to heal from it through alternative practices.

After practicing the Yang Short 37 Form form almost 9 years and learning several Qigong forms from TCM Healers, Poets, and Social Activists, Om Prakash began to study a new form of Tai-Chi in 2003 with Dr. Keith Jeffery in Canada. He became certified in 2006 to teach a very short seminar consisting of a short, but powerful, set of exercises developed by Dr. Jeffery referred to as Four Minute Fitness Qigong. In Costa Rica Om Prakash studied Sat Yoga philosophy and Atmanology Analysis Spiritual Guidance with Shunyamurti Robert Shubow, and worked as a visiting faculty member teaching Tai-chi, Qigong, and pranic healing.

This class will be accompanied by other short, but powerful forms of moving meditation and sitting meditation that can be used to reduce stress and also take you to a higher level of awareness and personal growth.
