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!

This class combines the healing benefits of Restorative Rest and Sound Healing. Restorative poses are bending and opening positions that are held in comfort using blankets, bolsters and blocks. They are held for 2-10 minutes to allow the fascia, muscles, joints and mind to unwind and relax. It can be an exhilaration feeling to have tension released in this way.
We layer over this the balancing sounds of various professional sound healers. The frequencies of sound assist in bringing the mind to a meditative state, and also steers the body to balance and ease.
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.
