Summer Yoga & Organ Cleansing Qigong Workshop

With Cheri Moran and YongIn Kim (a Body Grace student)
Fee: $35 pre-registered; $40 drop-in

Summer is nature’s season of growth and maturation as flowers and fruits are all around us and our gardens are growing full and tall.  This is the time to feel inspired, joyful, loving, compassionate, and open to life in all its expressions and to connect with others.  The sun is the perfect expression of yang energy, encouraging outward movement and action.   

Combining yoga with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), this workshop will guide the practitioner to align with the natural cycle and flow of life through a balanced practice of asanas, and qigong movements for the organ systems, also known as "acupuncture without the needles." Summer is associated with the fire element in TCM, and is connected to the organs and meridians of the heart, pericardium and the small intestine. The heart is often described as the “home and sanctuary of the mind and the spirit.”  We will practice asanas that will open the heart and strengthen and tone the core muscles along the heart and the small intestine meridians, and practice organ cleansing qigong movements that will inspire love and joy.  

All levels of yoga and qigong are welcome.  
Reserve a spot with Jan at bodygrace@verizon.net by Saturday, August 5.

Yin Yoga

With Lisa

$20 with pre-reservation; $25 drop-in

Yin yoga is a meditative style of yoga which provides a deeper release in the body by safely working the connective tissue - the ligaments, tendons and fascia.  Poses are typically held for three to seven minutes, increasing circulation in the joints and enhancing range of motion.
 Yin also stimulates the flow of qi, the body's subtle energy.
This quiet and sometimes intense practice allows you to release and connect more profoundly into inner silence and awareness.

Please reserve a spot for this class with Jan
at bodygrace@verizon.net

Drop-ins are welcome with six preregistered students.
