• 9:30 am – 12:00 pm ~ Yoga and Qigong: The Dance of Heaven and Earth When the body flows like running water, it is always renewed, always fresh. This is true freedom.
While yoga has its roots in the Vedic scriptures of India, Qigong grew out of the Chinese Taoist pursuit of longevity. Explore the Taoist concept of “effortless flow” through qigong exercises and then bring the same ease of motion into Yoga of Energy Flow flowing sequences. The movements in both forms are graceful and gentle, with powerful effects that detoxify the body as they increase strength, flexibility, and peace of mind.
This workshop focuses on Qigong practices to open the meridians, meditative flow in yoga sequences, breathing exercises to enhance life energy, and concentration techniques for mental clarity.
• 2:00-5:00 pm ~ Partner Stretching and Thai Yoga Massage Our health is dependent on the free flow of chi/prana (life force) in our mind, body, and soul.
With partner stretching and Thai Yoga Massage, we will open blocked areas in the body, bringing harmony, lightness, and joy to our being. The partner stretching draws on a modern stretching technique called PNF/resistance stretching, while Thai Yoga Massage involves gentle finger and hand pressure, acupressure release points, and comfortable joint manipulations. This is an unbeatable combination that reduces muscle tension, increases flexibility, enhances circulation, helps alleviate lower back pain, and improves balance and coordination. In the end, you will feel more relaxed and energized, guaranteed! Feel free to attend alone or with a friend.
