Qigong Workshop with Samantha Lavery, Saturday 22nd May 12:30pm


We are so excited to be able to offer you this stimulating Qigong workshop hosted by the lovely Samantha Lavery!


Qigong is the movement of energy through a mind-body practice that improves your mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing techniques and focused intent.


In this 90-minute workshop we will explore an early summer focused qigong practice, working with the Pericardium and Triple Heater, the organs and their associated meridians, which resonate with the season. We will strengthen and support our whole system through breath, movement and meditation in a gentle and energising way.


In the fire element, we will embrace the expansive and uplifting energy of early summer. Through awareness of this element, we can help to balance the fire energy, circulate energy and regulate any extremes within ourselves. In qigong, we want to build and maintain our energy to keep the body and heart warm. This will enable us to keep our inner radiance that allows us to feel more open and relaxed and awaken the potential for growth and possibilities.


We will also practice the body-clock qigong flow – The body has a natural daily cycle, illness, injury, stresses, travel and shift work can negatively impact the flow of energy in the meridians. We can reset the body clock to restore the body’s natural rhythm, maximise energy so our body can function at an optimal level.


With these flowing and uplifting movements, the routines themselves are usually gentle but the effects may be powerful.


We will practice meditation to deepen the connection to ourselves using the breath; our most powerful tool, finding stillness, quieting the mind and healing the body.


Physically, the slow gentle qigong movements, warms tendons, ligaments and muscles; tonify vital organs and connective tissue and promote circulation of body fluids.


Mental clarity, many physical problems are at least partially due to, or aggravated by mental or emotional stress, so the importance of the inner tranquillity developed through qigong cannot be overestimated. This practice will help manage stress, depression, frustration, morbid thoughts and general confusion that prey on our mind when your chi is not regulated or balanced.


· This practice is suitable for beginners as well as those with experience

· A mat is advisable but not essential

· If your balance is unsteady, a chair will be advisable

· Wear comfortable clothing which allows you to move freely

I look forward to sharing this amazing practice with you


Have the power of your own health in your own hands


Love and gratitude
