Free-Flow-Movement Qi Gong
Free Your Body - Flow into your Essence
What is Qi-Gong?
By integrating physical postures, slow movements, breathing techniques and focused intention Qi Gong/Tai Chi is a system of self-healing that has been used in China for thousands of years to achieve health and longevity.
It literally means "working with the Qi energy", the all-pervading vital life force that keep us alive. As Qi circulates in our bodies in energetic pathways called meridians, it nourishes our body, internal organs, and promote our emotional, psychological and spiritual balance and well-being. When our Qi does not flow smoothly dis-ease (which is a lack of ease) can manifest in our body and mind.
Qigong is easy to learn, less strenuous than yoga or Pilates, and is accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels.
What is Free-Flow-Movement Qi-Gong?
By combing the learning of Qi-Gong exercises, principles and practices together with individual explorations of free-body movement & dance (and aided by AMAZING, sometime Live, Music), this class offers an opportunity to cultivate the life force energy within our body, release stress & tension as well as harmonize the body, mind and spirit.

The class will be divided in two parts:
1) LEARNING : In the first part we will learn simple yet powerful Qi Gong warms up & exercises that combine three elements: abdominal breathing, slow postural movement, and visualization.
2) FREE-MOVEMENT/ DANCE / FUN !! The second part will facilitate, through music and other suggestions, the individual exploration and application of what was learnt to free-body movements (Yes, you will also be able to Dance if you wish !!! ) as a way to enjoy ourselves, as well as improve our range of movements and creative body expressions.
The class emphasis will be on consciously detaching one´s self from the “critical and judgmental mind” of our movements, becoming an “observer” of our own body rather than a “doer”.
Free-Flow-Movement Qi Gong: An example of connecting to the Qi and letting it flow into movement that free up new body's energetic pathways.
