Learn to create an easy fluid counter-balance in your movement!

Our times are requiring the ability to be able to grow, see and move from more than one perspective and often navigate conflicting ideas without becoming stagnant or resistant.

At the core of this skill is the ability to find contra-lateral counter-balance in all actions. Many of us either skipped or significantly limited this time period in our early development leaving us with less options as adults.

The lessons in this series are innovative and will involve retracing some developmental movement patterns including rolling, crawling and moving backwards.

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.

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.

You can drop in or attend regularly. We will start each class with some foundational basics and then slowly over this series continue to learn the Hui Gong for the Heart Qi Gong form. We started this form at the beginning of 2019 and are continuing. You can join in easily. You do not need to have attended the past classes.

This standing Qi Gong form is known as Wisdom Qi Gong. This form focuses on bringing the heartmind to tranquility by cleansing. It replaces the train of many thoughts with one thought by using the mind to guide the Qi through the five solid organ meridian systems.

The intent is to wake up the spiritual qualities within the five solid organ energetic systems–the Shen (desire/knowledge) in the Heart, the Hun (imagination) in the Liver, the Po (animal spirit) in the Lung, the Yi (intention) in the Spleen and the Zhi (Will) in the Kidney. These qualities are what make a human a full human.

Not only is a physiological potent awakened but this primary essence evokes the power of pre-immunity. In that way self-healing is created by balancing yin and yang energy.

This particular Qi Gong can help to re-establish emotional equilibrium and maintain a sense of well-being. No prior Qi Gong experience necessary. Optional study book $15.

Embody the grace and beauty of balanced yin and yang!
