About the Weekend
The aim of this weekend will be to get in touch with our subtle energy through the basic practice of pranayama breathing exercise & gentle qigong movement.
Pranayama is an ancient system of breathing exercises associated with the practice of Hatha yoga (physical posture yoga). By controlling the breath we can energise the body keeping it fit & healthy for everyday life. At the same time these exercises calm the mind making it the ideal preparation for any meditation.
Qigong or chi gung is a holistic system of coordinated body posture and movement, breathing, and meditation.Qigong forms are simple to do but deeply effective for both health & well being. Becoming sensitive to the energy around us & flowing within us helps to balance the body & mind. It is another great aid to meditation or just going with the flow and not as physically challenging as yoga.
During the weekend we will also do some short meditation sessions based on simple mindfulness techniques to help the mind slow down & gently settle into our own awareness, learning how to just be in the moment.
I hope you can join us for a lovely energising experience!
