Qi Gong "Life Energy Cultivation"

with Dawn

10:00am

Qi Gong is a holistic system of coordinated body posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for health, spirituality, and martial arts training. With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (chi) or what has been translated as "life energy".

Qigong practice typically involves moving meditation, coordinating slow flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and calm meditative state of mind. Qigong is now practiced throughout China and worldwide for recreation, exercise and relaxation, preventive medicine and self-healing, alternative medicine, meditation and self-cultivation, and training for martial arts.

No experience needed to attend. Please arrive a few minutes prior to the start of class in loose comfortable clothing.

The abdominal region of the body is the center of our balance and strength. It supports us physically in our practice and spiritually in our lives. This class is NOT just a class about "crunches". It is a class about applying our abdominal muscles into our poses and tapping into the "gut feeling" we all have within us.

Learn how to incorporate a strong focus on the core through uddiyana bandha and asanas focused on this area of the body. 
Abdominal strength improves nearly every pose offering balance and ease and when you step off the mat it helps you with posture and protection of your back in other areas of your life.
