Come along to deeply relaxing and rejuvenating weekend workshops of Tai Chi-Qigong techniques which build and balance energy in the 3 Dantien Centres – the head, heart and belly. You will learn how to find stillness at the centre of movement, with an alert mind, an energized body, and an open heart.
Workshops are presented in either a one or two day format, as follows:
In the morning of a one day workshop you’ll learn circular, flowing Tai Chi-Qigong exercises which develop harmony in life from a grounded, centred and relaxed place. In the afternoon you’ll learn standing and sitting style meditations which calm the mind, deepen awareness and build your internal reservoir of Qi energy.
TWO DAY WORKSHOPS
The two day weekend workshops allow even more time for you to absorb the exquisite Tai Chi and Qigong meditation practices which enhance the moving exercises. These calming and restorative meditations include traditional standing, walking and sitting styles.
Within all of the smooth flowing Tai Chi-Qigong exercises you’ll be practicing alignment and deep relaxation, to activate your chi and circulate it smoothly throughout the whole body. You will also learn stronger Yang exercises alternated with the soft Yin forms to build a strong container for your increased energy and to regulate the nervous system.
On the first day there will be an emphasis on grounding and centering while harnessing lower body power to provide connection to earth chi. During the afternoon we will focus on opening and expanding the upper body to connect with heavenly chi.
On the second day, you will learn how to maintain awareness in movement which will include partner exercises to blend and harmonise with incoming forces. We will also practice meditations to differentiate thoughts, feelings and sensations within, which refines the witnessing aspect of the mind.
Throughout the weekend, a range of standing and walking meditations anchor awareness in the aligned postures of the moving body. You’ll also practice energy breathing in the forest, to absorb the beauty and Qi of nature. Practicing for a whole weekend is not tiring as the moving exercises are interwoven with the silent, still meditations. This combination restores the entire energy system and you will be replenished at the end. Also you can rest whenever suits, either sitting or lying down, whatever you need on the day.
