Online Movement Classes

The following classes are online Zoom classes only, taught by Nancy Saum, RN.


This practice may be described as moving meditation, with coordinated slow flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and a focused meditative state of mind. Qigong is now practiced throughout China and worldwide for recreation, exercise, relaxation, disease prevention, self­-healing, meditation and self ­cultivation.  No prior Qigong experience required. 


Class Times:  Tai Chi Easy classes are now moved to Tuesdays.  There will no longer be a           Monday class.   


                           Tai Chi Easy, Tuesdays, 10am EST

                            QiGong, Thursdays, 10am EST



Tai Chi Easy™

Tai Chi Easy™ is a blend of simple medical Qigong techniques with carefully chosen Tai Chi exercises that are accessible to anyone, from the very fit to those confined to wheelchairs or recovering from surgery.    As you move, you breathe deeply and naturally, focusing your attention — just as you do in mindfulness meditation — on breath and bodily sensations.  Instruction will be limited, so it would be somewhat challenging for people completely new to the practice.

SMI Mindful Movement Classes with Nancy Saum are Now Donation-based!  Donations to movement classes provide SMI with resources for teacher compensation.

Mindful Movement classes will continue on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at the same times, but are switching from per-class payment to a by-donation-only format. Now, with your one-time registration, you will be able to drop-in to any/all of the weekly movement classes.

You will also find a link for donations on both the registration form and in your weekly email reminder.
