Given the ongoing situation with coronavirus it is not possible to restart face to face teaching at the moment. So I will be offering another programme of online classes for the winter. These online classes work exceptionally well and have been very popular. Their effectiveness has exceeded my expectations and I’m very happy to be teaching another series.
The classes are open to everyone regardless of experience or ability. This new series begins on October 6th.
Tuesday evenings 5.30-7pm from October 6th
The Qi ball. The Qi ball practices are some of the most profound Qigong has to offer. Through practicing with the ball we increase our Qi capacity, build resilience and stamina, and open our connection to source. At the deepest level we can enter a state of meditative peace and aliveness. Each session includes still gestures, movements and sitting.
Wednesday mornings 10-11.30am from October 7th
Hua Gong forms. These are the fundamental practices of the Huagong style. This sequence of flowing movements opens the body, activates all the Qi channels and cavities, and wakens the body light and consciousness. It is excellent both for maintaining health and transforming illness and difficulty.
Thursday mornings 10-11 from October 8th
The Five Animals. The five animals are the tiger, deer, bear, bird and monkey. The five animal practice includes both forms and spontaneous response. Through tuning in to the essence of each animal we connect with its power in a way that is similar to shamanism although the approach is very playful. The five animal practice is very physical and invigorating and will leave you feeling very enlivened.
I will also be launching a completely new course in Chinese medicine nutrition. This ten lesson series is accompanied by extensive notes, recipes and a WhatsApp group for ongoing discussion and resource sharing. There will be a free introductory session on Monday October 5th at 7pm. To register please click here
How to join
To join, simply click on the link. If you have not used Zoom before you will be asked to download the free app from the internet which just takes a few minutes. You can join a test meeting here
During the class it is important that you keep your video off to reduce bandwidth. You will be muted automatically. Set your screen to “speaker view” and you will see me. At the end of the class you can turn audio and video on for feedback and discussion.
Classes are set up on a sliding scale and you are invited to pay what you can afford. My preferred method is payment by BACS. Please email me for my account details. If for any reason you are unable to pay by BACS please email me to set up an alternative method.
If you are unable to pay at this stage because of Covid I am happy for you to join anyway and to receive the class as a supportive gift. Wishing you strong Qi and resilience during these extraordinary times.
