Thursdays, 10:15 a.m. This Land Yoga, 600 NW 23rd St. Suite 208 This is a community contribution class, $5 minimum, though $10 would be lovely.
Qigong self practice is an hour of easy to follow standing qigong form lead by Karen. Using gentle repetitive movements we harmonize and balance our personal fields, tan tiens, deep pathways, meridians, and organs. Bringing these aspects of ourselves into harmony boosts vitality, balances emotions, and improves concentration. No experience is necessary. You can do these practices wearing your work clothes (minus the shoes) and may find this a restorative practice revitalizing you in the mid morning. You can sign up in advance and check for cancellations at www.thislandyoga.com
Wednesday Evening Practice
Each month, unless my schedule prohibits, we will meet the second and fourth Wednesday. This will be a combination of a simple standing form followed by either la chi or an inner alchemy practice.
in April we will meet on April 11th and 25th, at 6:00 p.m. 5131 N. Classen, Ste 208 $10
During La chi we sit in a circle and, through the use of our inner focus, hand movement, and sounding, we cleanse and support our organ systems. If there is time, we extend this practice out to other parts or our body, our community, our planet, our universe.
During Inner Alchemy we sit quietly and let our movement be on the inside as we use our minds to guide the chi through various chi pathways in the body. These practices restore balance, harmony, and health to the energy body, organs, emotions, and thoughts. What I need from you? I need to know the day before if you are coming. That means “tell me by Tuesday”. Please reserve your space by Emailing me, texting me, or calling me (405-517-5819). The class size is limited so first come first served and if I need to, I will build a waiting list. This advance notice ensures an actual physical seat in the room for you. Knowing when the class is full will keep me from having to turn someone away at the door.
Many thanks to Nancy Cottrell for this photo of Qigong practice.
