You can still join into this series once it’s started.... It’s a four (4) week series of Modern Qigong: Seasonal-based practice.
Qigong is a moving meditation practice that comes from ancient China and is connected to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Qi (chi) translates to mean life-force energy, and Gong to mean work, or cultivate. The literal translation of Qigong being ‘energy work’.
The best way to describe the practice of Qigong is as a gentle and restorative exercise therapy. The purpose of the practice is to release tension; physical, mental and emotional tension, in order to allow the energy of the body to circulate freely and without stagnation or blockage.
Qigong activates our body's energy system and the innate self-healing capacity of the body. Ultimately the practice is a moving meditation that incorporates acupressure, slow stretches, gentle flowing movement and stillness.
During classes we explore acupressure, standing, slow stretches, gentle flowing movements, breath-work and stillness, accompanied by a strong focus on presence.
When practicing Qigong our intention is to be embodied and present, to connect with ourselves in a holistic way, what is described in Chinese philosophy as connecting The Three Treasures. There are several fundamental principals in the practice of this beautiful form of self-care and restoration, the essence being to slow down, soften the heart and to do less.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the scheduled class time.
