Classes are winding down for this year, but 4 opportunities remain to experience Qigong:

Ongoing Class: Gentle Tao-Yin Yoga
Mondays thru Nov. 23 / 6:30-7:45 pm / $15 drop-in anytime or $50 for 4 classes

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 …

Inner Smile Meditation & Microcosmic Orbit
Wednesday, Nov. 4 / 6:30-8:30 pm / $40

The Inner Smile is an ancient Chinese healthcare practice that transforms damaging, negative emotions into vitality and healing through directing energy to all vital organs and glands, the complete digestive system, and the brain and nervous system. The Microcosmic Orbit circulates Chi inside your body to balance and enhance your energy.

Primordial Qigong Movement Form
3 Saturdays: Nov. 4, 11 & 18 / 1:00-4:00 pm / $129
Location: Richmond Natural Medicine, 2201 W. Broad St., Suite 107
Call to Register in Advance: 804-977-2634

The Primordial Qigong movement form is a joyful, flowing form that gathers powerful energies from earth, heaven, and the four directions. It can be used as a celebration, a moving meditation, an exercise or a spiritual practice. It is also called Wuji Gong, or Tai Chi for Enlightenment. It encompasses the Wuji, Bagua, Yin/Yang and Torus concepts. Qigong movements are generally looser/more free-form than Tai Chi movements. Learn this easy form to enjoy for the rest of your life--on the beach, at the mountains, or in your own backyard.

Whole Body Breathing
Wednesday, Nov. 11 / 7:00-8:15 / $25

Class will begin with the guided Full-Body Breathing Meditation, after which you will learn how the breath can be used for healing purposes throughout the body.

Six Healing Sounds
Wednesday, Nov. 18 / 7:00-8:15 / $25

Vibrations from your own voice can help release excess heat from deep within your body and bring about relaxation of your vital, inner organs to promote healing. A great sleep aid!

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!
