This group is sponsored by Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and was founded by Dr. Kevin Chen, a certified instructor of medical Qigong who co-edited the textbook “Chinese Medical Qigong.” (2010). Dr. Chen is now teaching in China, but we will continue practicing, learning, and sharing the wonderful Qigong exercises taught by Dr. Chen as well as other related Qigong. The classes will be led by two of Dr. Chen's former students, Eric Johnson (a Qigong and Tai Chi teacher with more than 30 years of experience) and Mike Corcoran, MD (a psychiatrist who has co-taught with Dr. Chen in the past).


$15 per class or $50 for 5 weeks.  Please visit our MeetUp page or ask the instructor in class for more information.
