The Qigong Projects class is a chance to learn a number of Qigong routines that
are more in depth and scope. Each topic will last a number of weeks before
moving on to the next one. Although we will go into these Qigong practices
deeply, each area of study will be very easy to learn and easy to incorporate into
your weekly routine. Topics range from advanced breathing methods, using the
natural world around us, to moving gracefully like a crane. The following is a list of
tentative topics that are subject to change. The next up-coming topic will be
announced at the end of the current project we are on. The number of days listed
for each topic is approximate and will depend on the number of students
attending, questions, and progress of the group.

The first topic will be the Qi of Nature (approx 3 sessions).  We'll send additional topics before each one begins.

This class combines somatics (slow, conscious isolated movements of major muscles and joints which reprogram the body to move fluidly), and stretch postures, along with breath, mudras, and internal focus. We will also practice classical gentle Yoga poses, mudras to specifically direct & open energy in the body, as well as flowing poses and stretches from Tao Yoga that allow energy to flow through the meridians. This gentle to moderate class promotes flexibility, lightness, and graceful movement. Appropriate for all levels.

SPECIAL CLASSES

HARVESTING ENERGY FROM TREES

JULY 21-23, 2024

Kripalu Institute

There is something magical about the forest. When we enter the woods and walk

among trees, we enter another world—a place where we not only feel safe and

comfortable, but also healed, refreshed, and rejuvenated. Those giants that we walk

among are powerhouses of life-supporting gifts.

Join certified qigong instructors John Platt, Mary Platt, and Cris Caivano for a program

that invites you to explore ways to tap into this incredible power source.

Through qigong, mindfulness, and more, you will:

 Learn postures, breathwork, and other techniques in a Five Element qigong

practice.

 Understand how the energy in specific trees can benefit different organs and

emotions.

 Identify the right trees for greater energy, emotional balance, and inner peace. 

 Breathe the air of trees—an ancient Taoist instruction.

TUITION: $349.00 per person + accommodations.

YOGA NIDRA

 

Zoom Series and Recordings Available soon! Please check back here!

***NEW*** PRIVATE YOGA NIDRA/HEALING SESSIONS AVAILABLE

contact Mary for more information peacefulpostures@gmail.com

  

Yoga Nidra means “yogic sleep.” It is a state of profound stillness and peace in which the body is in the deepest state of relaxation, yet the mind is awake. Practitioners are led through a series of techniques using body, breath, and awareness, resulting in deep physical relaxation, subtler mental states, and eventual stilling of the mind. Old reactive patterns and stresses are effortlessly dissolved, freeing the practitioner to function in life with greater clarity and inner joy.

REIKI (with Mary) and TUNING FORK (vibrational sound healing with John) sessions now available.

Please contact us for more information
