Slow, gentle movement suitable for most anyone. Tao Yin emphasizes the breath, activates the different energy meridians of the body that govern the vital organs, and gives special emphasis to the Psoas Muscle and the various Vertebrae groups of the spine to give flexibility and strength to these areas. You will be cultivating gentleness while developing strength…perform the exercises with awareness and sensitivity; they are moving meditations…
Primordial Qigong /Tai Chi for Enlightenment
Saturdays, Feb. 28-April 18* / 3:00-4:00 pm / $95
Also called Wuji Gong, the Primordial Qigong form is a joyful, slow-moving form that gathers powerful energies from the Earth, Heavens and the Four Directions. It employs looser, more free-flowing movements than typical Tai Chi forms, and encompasses the Wuji, Bagua, and Yin/Yang concepts. Learn this easy form to enjoy for the rest of your life - on the beach, at the mountains, or in your own backyard.

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!
