I am so excited to be bringing this workshop to the YOGA HOUSE a lovely space filled with natural lighting, access to a beautiful backyard patio and a direct path to the ravine should you wish to mindfully forest bathe : ) This will be an intimate workshop for 6-7 people, a day for YOU to focus on your self within a calm & safe healing & wellness space with guidance on mindfulness, self-compassion and qigong (energy work for self-care & manifestation). Participants from past workshops share how by the end the feel more calm yet energized, grounded, clear, and reconnected to their bodies & authentic resilient selves. Workshop participants will learn easy practical skills in:

1) MINDFULNESS:

  • The foundational attitudes that are at the heart of what mindfulness really is

  • Both formal and informal ways to integrate mindfulness into a busy life

  • How mindfulness can help you navigate physical and emotional challenges such as stress, pain, anxiety

  • Help you integrate all parts of yourself (the dark, the light everything in between) and

2) MEDICAL QIGONG:

  • How this 5,000 year old Chinese practice can cultivate a healthy energy body, leading to a healthier physical body, mind and spirit

  • How to use posture, gentle movement, intention, concentration, visualization, breath work, and your ability to vocalize healing sounds to 1) purge the body of Qi that is no longer of highest service 2) nourish the body with fresh new Qi, 3) bring balance to the flow of Qi through the body and 4) help you to reconnect with your true resilient nature, moving into the future you know you can create!

This workshop is beneficial for anyone who wants to learn new self-care practices to:

  • cope better with physical pain and fatigue

  • cultivate current personal practice for learning, healing, growth and overall wellness

ONLINE: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) + Medical Qigong
Mar
19
to May 7

ONLINE: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) + Medical Qigong

  • Online via Zoom Video Conferencing (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This workshop takes the world renowned 8wk Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction curriculum and infuses it with the ancient practices of Medical Qigong.

Why would one add Medical Qigong to Mindfulness?

Well, mindfulness helps us to BE with the present moment as it is without trying to change it, giving us a better understanding of how to move forward with compassion. Medical qigong offers us various ways to respond to each moment with practices that help us to affect change with wisdom and compassion. So while mindfulness helps us to ACCEPT the moment medical qigong helps us to AFFECT the moment.

What is Medical Qigong?

Medical Qigong refers to the 5,000 year old practice of Chinese Energetic Medicine. "Qi" (pronounced "chi") means "energy" and "gong" means "the skill of working with." In this class you'll be guided through the use of posture, gentle movement, intention, concentration, visualization, breath work, and your ability to vocalize healing sounds to 1) purge the body of Qi that is no longer of highest service 2) nourish the body with fresh new Qi and 3) bring balance to the flow of Qi through the body.

This workshop is beneficial for anyone who wants to learn new self-care practices to:

  • cope better with physical pain and fatigue

  • learn new ways to integrate and process emotional challenges such as stress, anxiety and depression

  • cultivate current personal practice for learning, healing, growth and overall wellness

  • Strengthen the body’s energetic capacity for conscious attraction and manifestation (since the body is like a radio transmitter & antenna).

  • Consciously radiate positive vibes from the inside out!


Learn to balance the flow of YIN, feminine, earth energies with YANG, masculine, solar energies moving through your body. With more life force flowing through your grounded physical body you can navigate life and its challenges with more skills.
