I have long held a dream of practicing qigong in different parks throughout Oklahoma City. The time has come, and you are invited to join me at no cost. I will lead simple standing forms with the intention of not only supporting the circle, but to bring chi to the city and our neighborhoods. Because we are standing and outside, please dress for the weather. And, feel free to bring a chair to sit in if you are not currently able to stand for an hour. All forms can be modified to sitting and you may also just sit in the field and receive the chi. The parks and time will change but you can expect me to be leading qigong somewhere outside one Sunday morning a month. I will announce the place and time here on the website and in my newsletter (which you can subscribe to at the bottom of the page).
This month we will meet Sunday, July 22nd, 2018 7:00 a.m. Location is still to be determined. Oklahoma City, OK
Qigong Self Practice
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
Bi-monthly 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.
we will not meet in July, look for this to return in August 2018 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.
