Gentle Yoga - All levels:
The aim of this class is to wake up the body with gentle stretching, breath practice and yoga postures, intended for beginners with no previous experience, or those looking for a gentle basic ongoing practice.
This class will be a combination of healing Qigong and Tai Chi Easy and is appropriate for beginners or those wishing to continue the benefits of an ongoing practice.
Tai chi easy was created by Roger Jahnke of the IIQTC to make Tai Chi more accessible for all ages and abilities. Tai Chi is one of the most complex forms of Qigong (an ancient Chinese system for health and wellness of mind and body). Tai Chi Easy takes five essential movements from the traditional Yang style 108 movement long form, and distills it into simplified practice that makes Tai Chi easy, beneficial and fun right away.
The form was created by carefully reviewing many of the most popular and beneficial forms and distilling it down to five. It can be done standing or sitting, and the most important thing is not the form or the movement, but the state of being (state of awareness) that you do in the movement.
Cynthia enjoys combining ancient and modern healing systems for health of body, mind and spirit, including Yoga, Energy medicine, Tai Chi and Qigong.
