Balance Workshop

with Lindsay Sommers

Sunday, December 9, 2018 • 1:00pm – 2:30pm

Yogis practice balances poses to not only create a foundation for their asana practice, but also to increase their focus and core strength for a balanced approach to both their physical and mental health. Balance poses require the practitioners to hone in on their core muscles which support even and deep breathing. Through focused attention to the form of balance poses, a yogi will improve their overall asana (physical) practice.

Join Lindsay Sommers as she warms up your core, breaks down a few balance poses, then flows these balance poses together into a vinyasa-style class, ending with some stretches.

This class is perfect for those who struggle with balancing postures, as well as for practitioners who want to advance their practice.

Introduction to Chi Kung (Qigong), A Self Healing Art

Practicing the Eight Brocade

with Emily Turin

Sunday, October 20, 2018 • 1:00pm – 2:30pm

This workshop is an Introduction to Chi Kung (Qigong), the Chinese practice of aligning breath, movement, and awareness for the benefit of healing. Chi Kung is known as Taoist Yoga. It consists of slow- motion movements used to tone, energize and detoxify the muscular tissue, organs and energy meridians. This includes breathing techniques and meditation. It is known as the martial art of healing. We find many similarities of philosophy when comparing Chi Kung with Yoga, Reiki, Tai Chi, acupressure/puncture and other healing arts.

We will start the workshop with discussion about Chi or life force energy, followed by practicing some breathing techniques that will help us to engage with and become aware of the Chi as it travels through our own bodies. From there, we will explore a series of self-massages of the face, neck, limbs, and vital key points on the body that are used to activate, stimulate and regulate the meridian systems, which are a fine network of energy transporting vessels, that govern the organs of the body . Once activated, we will begin to flow Chi (Vital Energy) through our bodies and subsequently, our meridians, through a traditional series of poses known as the Eight Brocade. This is an easily performed series of slow moving exercises, that has been passed along through the past centuries, specifically chosen, along with controlled breathing and mindful concentration, to circulate, balance, and build Chi throughout the entire body. The term Brocade comes from the name of a silken Chinese fabric, indicating that the movements should have silken fluid quality to them. Slowly and peacefully, we will practice eight standing poses and movements, allowing the body to move with the breath as one silken action flows into the next. This practice can be used a a daily moving meditation to bring overall health and vitality to ourselves physically, mentally and energetically.

Throughout the time spent together, we hope to help bring an awareness to the energetic capacity and innate power that we each have within us to bring healing and vitality to our own bodies, minds, hearts and spirits.

This workshop is available to people of all ages and physical conditions. It is said that even remaining in stillness and using only visualization and breathing techniques to mentally flow through the practice will have great health benefits.
The class will be collectively led by Edward Wright, Emily Turin, and Sabrina Simpkins. We are looking forward to sharing our practice with you.
