A Self-reliant Practice for Health of Body & Mind

Qigong Yoga

The literal translation of Qigong is “energy work.” It is an Asian form of yoga that has been around for thousands of years. Much of it is performed while standing, though there are a number of seated sets as well. There are hundreds of systems of Qigong that have come from various lineages, and many of them focus on different fields. Many are health oriented, while a separate group comes through the martial arts lineages.

My teaching style has a strong Iyengar background focusing on precision of alignment in yoga postures. Proper alignment is important to get the maximum benefits without injuries.

Tricia Miller L.Ac.

Yoga Training & Experience

Tricia was introduced to yoga back in 1972 when she saw Lilias Folan of “Lilias, Yoga & You” on PBS. As an impressionable 12 year old living in a small town in West Virginia, she was in awe of Lilias’ grace, poise, and beauty. The seed of yoga was planted.

Tricia began teaching in 1987 after she had a strong understanding of all aspects of yoga. To date she has accomplished more 10,000 hours of teaching. Students love her and are committed to her classes.

The combination of her formal training in yoga and her physical practice of Qigong opened a doorway to combine her knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qigong and Medical Qigong with Yoga. The blending of Qigong & Yoga makes the practice accessible to all.

“Yoga has been my greatest passion for more than 40 years. I often speak of ages and stages of Yoga. I’ve been through most of them. Now I’m excited to add Qigong to my teaching style. The combination of Yoga and Qigong is a natural progression of my class offerings.”

Qi Yoga for Strength and Vitality

Qigong translates as “Cultivation of Universal life force energy” as referred to as Qi in Chinese or Ki in Japanese. It’s all energy! Qigong is said to be the origin of yoga. The two systems have many similarities, for example both systems use animal names to represent the postures. The primary connection between the two systems is the power of Breath to move energy in our physical, mental & emotional bodies. Qigong and Yoga are meditative practices to calm the mind, ease stress and release tension held in our physical bodies. Removing stress and tension from the structure of the body allows the Mind to experience meditative states of higher consciousness.

Qigong is the origin of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Yoga is a therapeutic system from East Indian Ayurveda Medicine. Tricia has personally practiced Yoga for over 40 years. She studied Qigong, Tai Chi and Taosist healing systems during her training at California Acupuncture College. The combination of her formal training and physical practice opened a doorway to combine her knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qigong and Medical Qigong with Yoga. The blending of Qigong & Yoga makes the practice accessible to all. Tricia is teaching a hybrid of the two systems called QiYoga for Strength and Vitality.

Qi Yoga for Vitality & Wellness

Yoga originated from India and is becoming popular worldwide. Qigong originated from China and is less known outside China. Interestingly, both Indian Yoga and Chinese Qigong emphasize similar components in their fundamental practices. Results show that there is sufficient evidence regarding the supportive effects of both Yoga and Qigong on not only neuromuscular pathologies but also problems in cardiovascular, pulmonary, and mental health. Yoga and Qigong practices are good for both the body and mind.
