Qi Gong is a gentle form of exercise that reduces stress, supports health,and promotes awareness in activity. The aim is to cultivate stability, clarity and flexibility in the body and mind. These practices are suitable for beginner and experienced practitioners in any physical condition.
In these three classes, several forms will be introduced for your home practice. In each class we will go over anatomical support, meridian lines and movement mechanics to help your practice. Each class will also have a different focus, a different object of attention. You may take one or all three sessions.
Tuesday class: Shibashyi, a combination of taichi and qigong. Using the body as our attention, we focus on movement, weight shifts and our attention as that is happening. We cultivate a vocabulary of sensations.
Wednesday class: 8 Pieces of Silk Brocade, short form. With less weight shifting, we hone our attention, refining movements with the cultivation of stillness and resting in the qi. We practice to bring the subtle bodies from concept to experience.
Thursday class: Kuan Yin, we expand our attention to include our practice for others, sending our own practice in the cultivation of unconditional love. Itʼs important to be able to hold attention to our practice/our exchange with the universe/and our relationship to others.
