Hello, below are the new courses starting in January 2018.
But first I'd like to mention that it's time to do a little detox.
Cleansing our body around the solstice time is very beneficial. I know it's a difficult time because it coincides with the festive days.
To ride the wave of nature's rhythm and thereby be in harmony with nature's restorative power:
Cut out processed flour and sugar (biscuits, white bread and pasta), coffee, alcohol, meat, we are giving ourselves a rest from the inside out. If we could do this for 2 weeks right up to Xmas, cleansing will have a huge knock-on effect for our health all the way through summer.
The new courses will start on:
SMA, Wilton; Tuesday 9 January 2018 - 18.00 PM
It will be a course with several aspects, learning varied simple exercises, beginners will learn what Qigong can do for them. E.g. Microcosmic Orbit for Qi flow, Increasing the feeling of Chi in your body. Warmups designed to increase Qi Flow, stimulating acupoints in the face and body to promote unblocking Qi.
An Sanctoir; Friday 12 January 2018 - 09.30 AM
We will continue to work on nourishing the kidneys using the exercises from Tai Chi Chi Gung Shibashi and Healing Sounds Meditation. It will be geared towards beginners' understanding of mindfulness based exercise.
Nano Nagle Centre, Ballygriffin, 27th and 28th January 2018
We will use Qigong exercise and Daoist healing Sounds Meditation to stimulate the “Ming-men” energy center, located between the kidneys. Its called “the fire of the gate of vitality”. This area, when stimulated, nourishes the kidneys and benefits our health and well being. Practising Qigong prevents illness and restores the energy balance within our body and mind.

Warm the body with kidney energy, needed for the functioning of our organs.
