Ancient qigong and yoga are essentially two branches of the same tree. Though umbrella terms for a wide range of practices, both yoga and qigong are concerned with unifying the body in order to refine ones ‘qi’ or ‘prana’ to achieve higher states of being.
While much of modern yoga has become synonymous with ‘flexibility’, the Chinese systems are thought to have better maintained their roots. The simple movements of qigong allow the student to easily and effectively feel the internal flows of energy in the body.
Once connected with this energy, we can carry this sense in to our yoga asanas to correct obstructions in flow and develop our practice to deeper and more subtle levels.
In these two workshop we will: • Explore how these systems can complement and enhance each other • Learn to develop mental focus and breath control • Give you ways to integrate them both into your regular practice with ease and simplicity.
