Tuesdays 8am – 9am

Qi Gong is a system of body and mind cultivation developed in China, with roots going back thousands of years. It uses accessible sequences of simple movements to explore and refine principles of posture, movement, breathing and awareness. As a regular practice it helps improve health, fitness and inner balance.

These classes focus on the foundation of practice, including ground rules of structure and movement, breathing and body-mind relationship. The 8-9am class focusses in particular on the techniques of body alignment, release of breath and refining of the energy body, through a combination or static postures and simple moving sequences.

Accessible to all, the classes do not require any particular level of strength, flexibility or prior knowledge. The two classes on Tuesday are complementary, so you can attend either or both of them, depending on your interest and availability. Feel free to drop in, or get in touch for more details.

Andrea is a dedicated practitioner of Qi Gong, Tai Ji and Daoist Meditation, with over 30 years’ experience in bodymind practices. He is an affiliated Lotus Nei Gong instructor and continues developing his practice with internationally established teacher Damo Mitchell. Andrea is also a teacher of the Alexander Technique and a Shiatsu practitioner.

£8 per class (or £30 for 5 classes). Concessions available – please get in touch.

These classes focus on the foundation of practice, including ground rules of structure and movement, breathing and body-mind relationship.

Scaravelli Inspired Yoga

October 13, 2016

 

 

 

This is a class that anyone can join from beginners to those who want to deepen their practice. Vanda Scaravelli inspired an approach to Yoga that encourages you to ‘undo the doing’, to relax and move ‘without the slightest effort’.

In this class we pay attention to the breath, the spine and flow of energy in the body. We focus on Yoga as self-discovery and enquiry – as Scaravelli writes:

‘ To question authority is the mark of a good mind, unafraid to explore. Is it possible to have a different attitude in which a new intelligence, not imposed by others, but born out of curiosity, attention and sensitivity will emerge? In which body and mind, focused in one single action, collaborate together? It is just this revolutionary attitude that we are going to discover through a new disciple in the practice of yoga’

Come and explore with us: £8/£6 concessions. Drop In
