About the event
These sessions are for continuing students, or those who are already familiar with White Tiger Qigong practices or other Qigong systems. If you are a beginner, I recommend the 6:30pm class which follows this one.
The term consists of 10 sessions in total:
Block 1 = 4 sessions. 20 Jan; 3rd, 10th and 17th Feb.
Block 2 = 3 sessions. 24th Feb; 3rd and 10th Mar.
Block 3 = 3 sessions. 24th and 31st Mar; 7th Apr.
You may book for 1, 2, or all 3 blocks. It is possible to start with the 2nd or even the 3rd block, but there must be a commitment to all classes of a block.
DATES: PLEASE REFER TO THE BLOCK DATES BEFORE PURCHASING A TICKET (there is no class on 27th Jan and 17th Mar).
Please note that our venue is outdoors in Veale Gardens (South Terrace), Adelaide. If the weather is inclement, we will meet at an indoor city venue. Occasionally, where I am unable to secure a venue at short notice, the class will be held online via Zoom.
WHAT IS QIGONG?
Qigong is a system of healing that comprises at least 5,000 years of wisdom, and several thousand styles. It is an integral system of exercise specifically designed to keep all the body organs and systems in top health. Ideal to maintain vitality & keep you feeling great!
During these classes, we will deepen our exploration of 8 Trigram Organ Qigong and other Qigong practices from the Taoist Medical Qigong lineage of Lao Tzu. In China, Qigong has been used for healing and strengthening the body for centuries. The chosen sequence of movements from White Tiger Qigong's 8 Trigram Organ Qigong together with specific meditations can ease back pain, strengthen the spinal column and the torso to minimise risk of future back problems, and improve the flow of energy (Qi) and blood in the body to boost your natural healing abilities. Added to this, better care of your spinal column leads to better flow of Qi and nutrients to the brain, thus enhancing brain health!
New course components include:
Learning about the Kinetic Chain Principle Actions of Movement to help you feel the generation of Qi more easily and get into a flow state.
Additional breathing practices before, during and after the 8 Trigram sequence.
Some variations on the classic 'Palms' (forms) of the 8 Trigram Organ Qigong.
Characteristics of 8 Trigram Organ Qigong include:
-Smooth continuous flowing movements
-Correct, natural alignments
-Use of naturally efficient motion
-Supple and soft movements
-Reaching one’s full range of motion in the trunk and upper limbs
-Using ground energy to stay rooted, by feeling rooted from the feet and legs
White Tiger Qigong will deepen your body connection to new levels, and effectively enhance the internal communication systems of your body to support increasing mobility, circulation, flexibility, and much more.This truly is a powerful form which can support transformation both physically and energetically, as well as detoxify the emotional body.
Be ready to move, using these movements to attain true, deep relaxation. The movements can be modified to suit different levels of ability, and all age groups are welcome. Be prepared to feel good!
