Use Qigong techniques for letting go physical and emotional stresses

Different theme each week (Zoom)


Excellent class for building on existing practice of qigong.

In our day to day lives, we experience a lot of events, conversations or life changes that leave us feeling disempowered, hopeless, or tired. This is a common experience and our qigong classes focus on accepting and if suitable, gently changing the energy around those challenging experiences using "chi". 

It may not go away completely at one time, but we start to build our little muscles in 1) observing our energy (ie., feelings, body state), 2) noticing intraceptively where 'stuck' sensations are in the body; 3) how to make gentle shifts in ourselves. 

I welcome participants from all walks of life, and we have a respectful and safe shared space of the qigong practice lead by Jacqueline Chan, MA & her mother, Master Teresa Yeung. Our shared intentions and practice start to make gentle shifts in our energy which bring gentle, gradual and powerful changes in our lives. 

We change our relationship to those inner experiences and open the channel for a path to lasting tranquility, hope, and optimism.


Jacqueline Chan, has been learning Qi Gong from a young child along with her mother Master Teresa and Grandmaster Wu for about two decades. With contining Qi Gong practices and training, she has been developing her style in balancing the mind and spirit to improve inner harmony.

Jacqueline H. Chan is a research staff in the SickKids Research Institute as well as a member of The Mindfulness Project Team at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). She is an instructor of Qigong (pronounced "chi-gong"). Jacqueline grew up in a Qigong school within the lineage of Master Weizhao Wu and Master Teresa, and has shared this peaceful traditional Chinese healing art in symposiums and conferences. Jacqueline has been providing Qigong to SickKids staff for over 2 years and is an active participant in Wellness programming provided by Occupational Health at SickKids. Qigong is a gentle and serene form of moving meditation, a kind of Mindfulness in motion that integrates one's body and mind. 

She is dedicated to having a diverse and inclusive space. Jacqueline Chan is currently studying for a Masters of Pastoral Studies, in Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy, at The University of Toronto. She has a MA in Early Childhood Studies and a BA in Psychology.
