11.30am – 1.30pm
In this special New Year’s Day workshop, we will welcome 2015 with a mindful, steady vinyasa and qigong fusion practice. The practice will be aimed at building internal heat and fostering health and vitality. Qigong, meaning ‘cultivation of life force’, is a Chinese energy practice with roots in Daoist beliefs and traditions. It works with gentle, breath-led movements, visualisations and meditation, all aimed at refining the qi, or life energy. Using a creative interplay of yoga asanas peppered with Daoyin forms (sometimes known as Daoist yoga), we will explore how we can harness balanced, vibrant and revitalised energy, and start 2015 aglow with the incandescent light of good health. All levels are welcome.
