Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness meditation is a mental training practice that involves focusing your mind on experiences, such as body sensations, emotions, and breathe in the present moment. It is simply the act of paying attention to whatever you are experiencing, as you experience it. 
By choosing to turn your attention away from the everyday chatter of the mind to what your body is doing, the mind is able to gently quiet with practice.
Mindfulness meditation can involve breathing practice, mental imagery, awareness of body and mind, and muscle and body relaxation.

Moving Meditation (Qigong)

Qigong-reston-fitness_meditation

Qigong is an ancient Chinese gentle practice of movement that heals and supports all body functions. It helps your body, mind and spirit to connect with each other and function in harmony.  Qigong has the power to reawaken and strengthen your body’s innate healing ability, and lets you increase and balance Qi, or life force.   This practice is a pillar of Chinese medicine. Fundamental to this approach is the understanding that before any symptom appears in the body, there is an energy blockage.  When the qi is flowing, there is health and also a sense of joy!


Sound and Movement

This class fuses Hatha yoga poses, Qigong exercises, and Sound Healing. The free-flowing movements for all level of physical fitness will place attention on alignment, serene state of mind, and joy. With regular practice, both Hatha yoga and Qi Gong, cultivate a clear understanding of how your body moves, and how to strengthen and relax it.

Sound healing is the use of deep-vibrational instruments such as crystal bowls to support healing and meditation. The tones the bowls carry impact us in specific ways, different tones activate different energy centers, organs, and organ systems within the body. As the sounds reverberate throughout the body, participants can allow themselves to reach deeper states of consciousness and allow regeneration of cells within the body.

The combination of healthful movement and sound healing maximizes the effect of both, making this a very beneficial hour.

Take a Nap - Change Your Life

We will use the book by this name as the foundation of this class. You will gain a foundation of understanding about why sleep is crucial to well-being. It has a curious twist: that power-napping  could be what's missing to become our most productive and happy. In a perfect world, could it be that there would be enticing napping studios at every corner instead of coffee shops??!
