Turtle Chi Gung

Turtle Chi Gung

"If you're at peace with yourself, you're at peace with everybody."
- Sunyata Saraswati

The peaceful, slow but steady, and long-lived turtle and tortoise. What if we could enjoy those attributes as well?

Turtle Chi Gung utilizes various movements and breathing techniques to slow down the breath and the body, as well as imitates movements of turtles, for benefits such as possible longevity, thyroid stretching, and tonifying kidney energy.
