Robert Evans is a certified qigong instructor with the Institute of Integral qigong and Tai Chi. He has been teaching qigong for 16 years. He is also a certified yoga teacher with yoga Alliance (RYT 500) and he also studied yoga therapy at Loyola Marymount University. Robert is a certified personal trainer and corrective exercise specialist and is currently studying the physics and biomechanics of movement.
For this season, my plan is to combine qigong movements with yoga and title it Flowing into Grace, a Yoga/Qigong fusion experience. I’ve been incorporating qigong movements with flowing yoga poses for some time now and have a really wonderful, healing program designed that is suitable for all levels of participants. The plan would be to have an hour practice after breakfast is cleaned up, afternoon free time to explore the area, than an evening practice with a fire circle (weather permitting) and include some storytelling and music.

Just a note, at this workshop, Sue will not be doing any individual therapy work in her presentations; but will be discussing methods for self-improvement in general with participants.
