Baduanjin Workshop Series

First referred to in several encyclopedias originating from China’s Song Dynasty around year 1150, Baduanjin qigong is one of the most common forms of Chinese qigong used as exercise. Variously translated as Eight Pieces of Brocade, Eight Silken Movements, or Eight Silk Weaving, the name of the form generally refers to how the eight individual movements of the form characterize and impart a silken quality to the body and its energy.


Altadena Library is thrilled to present a 4-part workshop series for practitioners of all skill levels about this timeless, classic, simple and effective practice, led by Melody Hsieh. To be held outside the Main Library on its front lawn, each workshop will also include built-in time for relaxation and breath work.
