In this Immersion we will cover…
Flowing Stretch Sequences
These have a profoundly relaxing “unlocking” effect on the body, especially the lower back.
Pressure Point Self-Massage
Learning to massage the light switches of the body brings you healing, relaxation, and more energy.
We explore the Taoist ways of breathing, and work this into Qi Gong practices to build power.
A big part of Tao Yin is manifestation: focusing clearly on what you are working toward and setting intentions.
In this Immersion we will cover…
Postures of Power
You’ll use these standing postures to build and store Qi in the lower Tan Tien, the seat of the Pearl of Consciousness, and circulate it through the meridians.
Inner Alchemy Meditation
You will build this Pearl of Consciousness and pack it with Qi, as you begin to sense how you’re independent of the physical aspect of your being.
Fusion of the Five Elements meditation
Discover how you can bring Qi in from all elements of the environment, and pull this into your Tan Tien for more grounding and inner strength.
Discovering the Taoists’ relationship with nature, life, and death will help bring you into harmonious relations with the world around us.
Intermediate Qi Gong Flows
Taking another level of detail in the principles of flow and their application in flowing movements, so you can fine-tune your practice.
