Peachtree Yoga Adds Qigong to Weekly LineupSep 01, 2022 06:00AM ● By Staff
Peachtree Yoga in Sandy Springs, Atlanta’s oldest yoga studio, has begun offering a weekly qigong class every Sunday morning from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. The class is taught by Efrain Brady, who has over 20 years of experience teaching qigong.
“One pose is introduced every class, along with the acupuncture point related to the element or meridians that the pose is working on,” says Ilona Moore, owner of Peachtree Yoga, who introduced the class in July. Asked why she added a qigong class to her yoga studio, Moore replied: “It is a natural addition to the yogic path—working with energy and aligning yourself with its flow.”
Brady started teaching qigong in 2000. He also teaches tai chi and is a Traditional Chinese Medicine therapist. While he also offers weekly classes at the Herb Shop and Healing Center in Holly Springs, Peachtree Yoga is the only place in Atlanta that he currently teaches. The class price is $20.
Moore invited Brady to present a full-day workshop on Traditional Chines Medicine in May 2022 and plans to hold the workshop again in the coming months.
