Qigong means “working with Qi"(commonly known as energy). It is a science of using the breath, body, mind, and sound to Achieve and Maintain Perfect Health.  


Its deep roots set it apart. Spring Forest Qigong Level One – Qi Activation is not your standard Qigong practice class. Rather, it is comprehensive training fully encompassing the ancient science of Qigong. This training grounds you firmly in that tradition while helping you understand the mystery and secrets of Qigong Healing.



  • Use and direct your Qi with Qigong.
  • What is Emptiness? How to prepare yourself to enter the Emptiness.
  • How to connect with and tap into a greater energy than your own.
  • Five Element Qigong and its healing wisdom as the Physical Movements.
  • Small Universe Meditation as the Internal Refinement.
  • Experience the powerful combination of Qi & Yi.
  • How to engage breath, sound, movements, and mind in Qigong practice.
  • The Yin and Yang of Qigong.
  • Qigong healing principles, such as Qi Blockages and how they form.
  • Plus, a Special Bonus… Sword Fingers, a Qigong healing technique to help yourself and others to heal.

Love Notes from Carolyn's Students


Boost your Confidence

I have taken numerous classes from Carolyn. She is wonderful and teaches you the techniques to Spring Forest Qiqong. Not only does she teach you techniques, she gives you handouts to take home  and by the end of the class you are able to do the practice by yourself. I highly recommend Carolyn and her practice

-Jo Pietig

Tremendous Enthusiasm and Knowledge

Carolyn's 6-week practice group was something I looked forward to every week. It was simple, peaceful, and really enjoyable self-care for me. Carolyn is so light, calm, and grounded, and she seemed to always find the right pace and flow for our group. She clearly has a passion for Spring Forest Qigong, which I see through her dedication to her own personal practice as well as her consistency in offering practice groups in our community. I have recommended her Spring Forest Qigong practice group to others many times and would continue to do so over and over again!  

-Amber Diehm Heuer


Peaceful and Nurturing Teacher

Carolyn made the class so comfortable, and easy to do my best. I took the classes and then went on some of the additional locations that she set up and had a great time. I learned so much and I want to thank her for helping me with another healing practice. Thanks Carolyn!!!

-Deb Weidner

Calming Environment 

Carolyn is a wonderful teacher who shares her knowledge for everyone to receive  the best benefit during Qigong practice and beyond. Her calming presence and relaxing environment creates a peace that remains with you. 

-Michelle Eisenhauer


Welcoming and Relaxing Learning Environment

I took the 3 week 5 element Qigong series with Carolyn. She does an exceptional job of making her students feel welcome and comfortable. I especially appreciated her knowledge and the education we received regarding Qigong. The exercises were easy to follow, and they absolutely get the Qi flowing! I always felt relaxed, refreshed and energized after class. I highly recommend the series, and I will take her classes again. Thanks, Carolyn

-Betsy McClimen
