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/asana yoga) By controlling the breath we can energise the body keeping it fit & healthy for everyday life, at the same time these exercises calm and focus the mind making it an ideal preparation for all forms of meditation.
Qigong/chi gong is a holistic system of coordinated body movement and breathing working with the basis of chi. 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.
During the weekend we will be doing regular short meditation sessions, based on working with and experiencing our prana chi energy. For everyone who studied with the material Lou provided at the beginning of the year this course will be a great opportunity to deepen your knowledge and ask question during the guided Zoom sessions.
Lou and the team at Land of Joy hope you can join us online for a lovely energising experience!
