In this workshop, you will learn basic movement and breathing techniques to cultivate your physical/energetic center, or “dantien.”
Through standing postures, you will begin to re-train your habitual body alignment for optimal health and injury prevention in daily life. You will also practice dynamic leg exercises to better understand your body in motion and strengthen your center. The workshop will close with a seated meditation to improve the Lung system and your overall meditation posture.
Theoretical knowledge based in Chinese Medicine will be integrated throughout, to enhance your understanding of your body and health.
Re-train the body-mind connection towards a state of optimal alignment.
Receive individualized, precise guidance suited to your physical condition.
Learn the basic five element theory of Chinese Medicine.
Practice a Qigong meditation technique to improve both physical and mental health.
TQH Qigong improves physical, mental, and spiritual alignment by cultivating sharp awareness of how we inhabit our bodies. In these classes, we will use the Seven Static standing exercises, breathwork, and dynamic leg lifts to explore the postural and motion habits that bring us “off center,” causing tension and experiences of dis-ease in daily life. Students can expect precise, body-focused guidance on how to shift unwholesome habits toward a state of optimal alignment.
