Yoga & Tai Chi Chuan and Chi Kung

 

Yoga

All yoga classes are practiced as a meditation in motion. Classes include warm ups, breathing techniques, formal yoga postures, relaxation and stories. Posture, concentration and inner stillness are nurtured in every class. Mats are provided.

In Kripalu yoga every movement in the posture is synchronized with breathing, as conscious breathing stimulates a greater flow of prana
(life energy) into the body. It trains the mind to a greater ability
to look over one's own shoulder with humour, patience, and self-trust.

All yoga postures strengthen the alignment of the body. With
time the body will be strong, flexible, and calm, as an welcomed
by-product of Kripalu yoga

Every class nurtures body, mind and soul.

Tai Chi Chuan & Chi Kung

Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient eastern body, mind, spirit discipline and self-defence system based on the principle of internal power and structured by Taoist, Confucist, and Zen thought.

Chi Kung is Tai Chi Chuan’s predecessor and complimentary practice. Chi Kung can literally be translated as ‘energy work’. Through dynamic technique, sensory perception, breath, mudras and meditation Chi Kung cleanses and balances our subtle energy chakric and meridian system, and cultivates and directs that vital energy in the body.

Both arts are a restorative for mind and spirit and support the health of all the body’s physical systems.

Beginning in the training of one's body,
practice continues with the training of one's spirit.
Finally one realizes that body and spirit are not two things but one.
This is true practice.
~Shigeru Egami
