CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

 

     Hatha-Qi Yoga

This class weaves traditional Hatha Yoga and Daoist Qigong practices into a holistic approach to embodiment. As we surrender to the support of the Earth, awaken the spine, explore meditational movement through the breath, and open the energetic pathways of the bodymind through the healing arts, you will:

 

*nourish flexibility, mobility, strength, alignment, healing, and release

*invite balance, aliveness, presence, connection, and wellbeing

 

All levels; 75 minutes.

 

 

     Hatha-Qi Yoga for Men

 

Affectionately referred to as “Broga”, this class uses the principles of Hatha-Qi Yoga to address imbalances typical to the male body known as upper- and lower-crossed syndrome: tightness in the neck, shoulders, chest, back, hips, hamstrings, and calves that creates underactive muscle stability and energy flow elsewhere.

 

All levels; 75 minutes.

     Wuwei Qigong

 

Through the complimentary practices of Qigong, DaoYin, Reiki, and Craniosacral Flow, this class focuses on opening and nourishing the energetic pathways of the body from the concept of wuwei – “effortless effort”. In restoring regenerative balance to the Five Elements (Earth, Water, Wood, Fire, and Metal) within, we come back into wuwei – back into integrity with our interbeing with all of Life.

 

All levels; 45 minutes.
