At it’s most simple level Qi Gong is a basic practice of following and staying present for the continuously unfolding and changing senses of life force energy as these changes move through you. We will be starting at the beginning in this Qi Gong class: Beginner’s mind.

Appropriate for those who have practiced Qi Gong, are practicing, and those who never have and/or want to begin. Beginner’s mind is always profound.

Qi Gong is an ancient system of self-healing consisting of gentle movement exercises that combine breath, slow movement, self-massage, and meditation to harmonize the body, mind and spirit. A dedicated practice can provide countless benefits including increasing calmness, reducing blood pressure, anxiety, musculoskeletal pain, regulating the neruoimmunological system and enhancing resilience,strength, balance and vitality.

Our times are calling for us to learn to ride the waves of life more skillfully.

Efficient function requires an alignment of sensing, thinking, emoting and moving. This kind of movement of our thoughts, senses, emotions and bodies all have a similar felt sense in our inner worlds. The felt sense of fluidity.

Using innovative, fun and informative ATM study, we will learn how to be able to allow life to move through while focusing with clarity on a clear intent for ease and fluidity.

Awareness Through Movement (ATM) explorations are powerful experiments in using a particular type of curious and non-judgmental noticing while moving.

In these classes, we will explore Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement (ATM)® lessons which allow you to learn to generate true ease and flow of movement from a dynamic counter-balance within all of your movements. This contributes to ease and comfort for you!

This can make many types of activities more effective including walking, reaching, transitional movements as well as many creative endeavors. Being able to more easily hold two opposing views without adding tension can make difficult conversations easier as well as helping to navigate moments of unknowing.

By learning to widen your focus and access your awareness, you can notice when changes are necessary and be able to increase your comfort, dynamic alignment, and efficiency.

Reduce discomfort, increase efficiency, improve flexibility, balance and innovate your adaptability for moving through all moments in life.

Explore the fun and highly novel movement pattens in Feldenkrais ATM’s!

Learn to decrease effort and discomfort from repetitive habits of moving. Good for first-time Feldenkrais participants or those who have explored ATM before.
