The slow, gentle, guided movements of Tao Yin, performed while lying on the floor on a yoga mat, are a different way of doing Qigong. They are suitable for most anyone. Tao Yin focuses on the internal alchemy of the body and on the Chinese five Elements (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood), which correlate to our vital organs and meridian energy flows. It also serves to develop flexibility and strength in the whole spine and in the Psoas muscles deep within the lower back. Students receive an enjoyable, stress-relieving, muscle-relaxing weekly class. Content is mostly the same week-to-week so that one learns how to release stress more easily, and the spine and Psoas muscles become stronger and more flexible over time.

The Primordial Qigong movement form is a joyful, slow-moving form that gathers powerful energies from the earth, heavens and the four directions. The loose, free-flowing movements are fun to do – they make you smile. They are also a moving meditation and can be done for that purpose – as well as for exercise, celebration, and ceremony. You will enjoy this form on many levels. Discover how to ground yourself, release negativity, gather fresh energy from the world around you, and use that to replenish your own body’s energy. Learn this easy form to enjoy for the rest of your life – on the beach, at the mountains, or in your own backyard.

Learn several simple ways to calm holiday stress and anxiety with Qigong. We will do Qigong practices involving movement, mind-body connections, intention, breathing, guided meditation, posture, self massage, and more. We will be standing, sitting and lying on the floor so dress in loose, comfortable clothes. Expect to feel balanced, relaxed energy and a renewed focus on the pleasures and meaning of the holidays.

See Classes and Calendar for details.

Change is inevitable. Navigating change underlays everything we do in life. The ancients understood this. Through study of the human body and human nature, they developed simple, yet profound ways to transform internal energies to maintain a healthy relationship of body and mind, and achieve healing and a balanced approach to life. Join me on retreat, in classes, or one-on-one to explore these healing practices. They can change your life, as they have mine!
