Beginning on Thursday, September 17th and continuing until November 26th (11 weeks) I will be offering a series of Qigong classes for those who are just starting to explore this amazing art or who are returning to it after some time.
Classes will be on Zoom and time is from 10:00 to 11:30 am Pacific Time. Cost is $10.00 per class.
Qigong is an ancient Chinese self-healing art and energy cultivation system that uses a series of gentle, focused exercises for the mind and body. The system combines slow Tai Chi-like movements, breath work, static postures, self-massage, visualization and meditation to enhance the flow of qi—vital energy or life energy—throughout the body, increasing overall quality of life and improving flexibility and immune function. The practice of Qigong enables the honing of the usually scattered mind into a focused mind, helping to rediscover one’s natural energy, harmony and wholeness—Qigong as portal to Awareness.
Quote from Kabir (1440-1518) One Hundred Poems: “Be strong, and enter into your own body; for there your foothold is firm. Consider it well. O my heart! Go not elsewhere! Kabir says: Put all imaginations away, and stand fast in that which you are.”
If you are interested in participating in the series, or even just thinking about being interested, please send me a note at email@example.com. If you decide to register for the series, then before the classes begin I will arrange a short Zoom meeting with you individually so that we can meet each other and I can further explain how everything works.
Until COVID-19 showed up in late winter, we had all our classes (Tai Chi and Qigong) in a studio, but then had to switch to Online. Much to my surprise and joy, I (we) have found the Zoom platform a wonderful way to learn and practice together. We’ve been Online since end of April and it has gone very well, beyond all our expectations.
I have been a devoted and passionate teacher and practitioner of Qigong and Tai Chi for 29 years and am a former Shiatsu Therapist and Registered Massage Therapist who practised in Toronto at my own natural health centre. I have had a committed meditation practice for over 40 years.
