IMG_6494 - Version 2

Our health is dependent on the free flow of chi/prana in our mind, body, and soul.

Using gentle pressure, body weight, and skillful touch to open the body’s energy pathways, we will work with a partner to increase our range of motion and perfect our alignment in yoga asanas associated with the fourteen meridians of Chinese medicine. A modern stretching method called resistance/PNF stretching will be taught, along with shiatsu and Thai Yoga massage.

When we release the tensions that we store in our bodies, we experience a profound alignment of body, mind and soul. As nature's energy streams through us, the heart begins to sing and we become connected to the universal life force that bridges heaven and earth, sun and moon, and all of nature.

Feel free to attend by yourself, or with a friend.   Register . . .

Sunday, June 18th, 8:00 am-12:00 pm, Vinyasa Yoga and QiGong: Flowing into Wholeness
Tenth Gate Yoga, Portsmouth, RI

When the body flows like running water, it is always renewed, always fresh. This is true freedom.

While yoga has its roots in Indian Vedic scriptures, Qi Gong grew out of the Chinese Taoist pursuit of longevity. In this workshop we will explore the Taoist concept of “effortless flow” through Qi Gong exercises, and then bring the same ease of motion into sequences from Yoga of Energy Flow. While the movements in both forms are graceful and gentle, the effects are powerful, detoxifying the body while increasing strength, flexibility, and peace of mind.        Register. . .
