Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the philosophy from which the practice of acupuncture and mind-body breathing practices like Qi Gong originate. This medical model understands our bodies as a dynamic energetic system. When we are connected to fully “being” in our bodies – acknowledging sensations, responding to physical changes and our meridians are in balance, Qi – universal life force can flow though us, bringing lightness, harmony and joy to ourselves, along with a profound connection with life and purpose.
This session will offer an experience of Qi Gong, restorative yoga poses and through these practices, incorporate practical at home practice tips to help support your wellness.
We will have a chat on sustaining your vital energy from a TCM perspective whilst in restorative yoga poses.
Leave feeling connected to self, inspired, supported and relaxed!
