In Person & Online via Zoom
“Chi Yoga” is a wonderful fusion of Holistic yoga and Chinese energy movement. Weaving together softly flowing movements, holistic yoga, pranayama (the yoga science of healing breath) and mediation, these practices support our whole system – mind, body, and (emotional) heart. Ancient wisdom for 21st century living – a perfect way to feel gently energised and alive in mind and body. This is a popular class, with the ‘tapping’ (see below) particularly loved!
Our sessions may include:-
“Do In” – gentle self-massage which is excellent for calming the nervous system, improving sleep and boosting immunity;
“Makka Ho” is a series of gentle yoga postures that clear the meridians (energy channels in Chinese medicine) and supports all the organs and systems within the body to function at their optimal level;
Simple Qi Gung mindful movement – soft flowing movement that restores energy and vitality via the meridian system, these practices also reflect the changing seasons and nature’s energy (earth, fire, water, wood, air). Think acupuncture without needles…
“Energy Medicine” techniques that boost our immune system, overall health and energy.
Holistic Yoga includes postures (asana), effective breathing techniques (pranayama), and relaxation (yoga nidra). Build physical strength, stability and flexibility, gain greater clarity and focus, reduce stress, anxiety and low mood and improve sleep, immune function, and overall wellbeing.
This 1 ¼ hour session is the perfect way to boost your mood, health and wellbeing – naturally.
We all have different bodies – flexibility, strength and health issues – options are always offered to help you get the best from your practice. A confidential health questionnaire will be sent to you upon booking – this helps me support you in the best way I can.
Equipment: Your yoga mat, a lightweight blanket and, if possible, a yoga block and belt. (A large book and dressing gown belt are fine to start with!) Wear loose comfortable clothing, bring a water bottle and your mask.
