I’m offering a two-part workshop in the famous baduanjin (eight silken movements) practice that dates back to the 11th century. It contains all the essential ingredients of qigong – cultivation of the three skills of body, breath and mind. In these challenging times qigong can help us stay grounded and resilient.
Cultivating the body, we develop elasticity, strength, stability and alignment. Cultivating the breath, we learn how to move into a nourishing and healing, relaxed parasympathetic state. Cultivating the mind, we build mindful presence and actually start to change the physical structure of the brain, building areas responsible for managing our emotions.
Two Sundays – January 31st and February 7th, 10am to 1.15 (UK time)
