Join Rebecca Gould on Wednesday nights for an hour of self-healing meditative movement and poetic contemplations!
This is an ongoing weekly class, Wednesdays, 6:15-7:15pm. Drop-ins, newcomers, and beginners are always welcome; no pre-registration required. The cost is $10 per class. Passes are also available. http://sanctuaryyogaaustin.com/schedule/
Qigong (chi kung) is the root of Tai Chi and Acupuncture and referred to by some as Chinese Yoga. These practices are designed to help you feel internal and external Qi (vital life force enery) while increasing circulation throughout your body, have greater focus, and build strength, all the while relaxing your body and mind. The focus of Qigong in general is on building a reservoir of Qi (also known as prana) in your core and being more aware of balance, breath and alignment, which will ultimately cross over into your Yoga practice and other activities as well.
In this class, Sheng Zhen Gong will be the primary system taught, with a focus this Spring and Summer on the form Heaven Nature Gong. This Qigong enhances physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being through gentle movements and poetic contemplations that express the “flavor” of the movements. Above all, Sheng Zhen focuses on opening the Heart and the power of the energy of Love. Supreme Science Qigong may also be included in some classes. These practices are gentle and easy to learn, appropriate for all ages and fitness levels. Newcomers and beginners are always welcome!
