Thursday Mornings 7:30-8:15 am
$75 for series of 4; ($25 single class drop in)

Recharge yourself with these effective 45 minute, outdoor practice sessions to revitalize your energy and calm your spirit.

Practices include short and long forms from the Way of Joy Qigong that

• relax your mind (shen or Heaven realm)
• open your heart (qi or the Human realm)
• invigorate your energy (jing or the Earth realm).

We practice in Temescal Park near the SOUTH entrance off Broadway Terrace, right across from entrance to Hwy 13 (south). It’s a short, easy walk from the small parking lot. Just walk towards the Lake and you will find us near under the Redwoods. Or come a little early and enjoy a brisk energizing walk around the lake before practice!


Vicki Dello Joio is the Founder and Host of Qi Talks
With the National Qigong Association

The National Qigong Association is very proud to present a monthly conversation with some of the brightest Energy Arts minds in the world and share them with you through QiTalks with your host Vicki Dello Joio (Often referred to the “Terry Gross” of the Qigong world.)

2nd Thursday of the month.

Anyone can register, tune in, listen and even ask questions of our special guest during the live QiTalks broadcast. Additionally, you’ll want to stay tuned to the end of the broadcast as many of our special guest offer gifts / discounts on training materials just for participating in the call!


Comments from listeners:

“You are the best interviewer/moderator that I’ve ever heard. You always have such a cheerful, welcoming, embracing Qi with your voice, friendliness, attitude & warmth — someone I want to listen to. You always tactfully maneuver the QiTalk to be “on point” if either the guest presenter or the questioners “wander”. Thank you for your continuing presence.”

“You are the best Moderator and you ask inspirational and point on questions. Thank you Vicki. We are so fortunate to have you as a Qigong Master and part of the NQA.”

“Vicki is the Terry Gross of the Qigong world.”

Lotus Workshop in FRANCE

Vicki is offering her popular summer workshop,
“From Muck to Mastery: Living the Lotus”

(in English with French translator).

Gentle, powerful and inspiring, the Lotus is a qigong practice that energetically rewires your neuro-pathways. The Lotus flower, a spiritual symbol in many cultures, has the ability to draw from roots deep in swampy waters and transform that stagnation into fuel for growth, emanating an exquisitely fine-tuned energy. Everything that you have experienced, all of who you are has contributed to the wisdom and power of who you are now. This workshop offers ways to convert what may seem like the “muck” of your life into fuel for growth and fulfillment.

The July Weekend workshop in 2019 was SOLD OUT –  Repeat event planning for future date.
