About the Event
Join TMG and Barbara Hussong for a Mindful Movement workshop introducing qigong exercises.
In this workshop you will be guided in gentle qigong exercises which can stimulate the flow of energy - or qi - in our bodies by opening the energy pathways. We will be paying attention to the body and breath whilst we are moving. Doing the exercises can help improve flexibility and suppleness of our body and calm the mind. No previous experience is required.
Practising qigong is suitable for just about everyone, so long as you listen to your body and modify or omit things that do not feel good for you, and rest if you need to. If you have health conditions that you would like Barbara to be aware of, please let her know in advance or at the start of the workshop. If you have any doubts about what is appropriate for you, please consult your health professional.
It is best to wear loose, comfortable, layered clothing and soft-soled shoes or bare feet. Most qigong is done standing, but much can also be done seated on a firm chair.
At the end of the workshop, you will be invited to sit or lie down in order to fully feel the benefits of the exercises, so you might like to bring what you need to be comfortable, i.e., a blanket or extra layer for warmth. Participants are also advised to bring a bottle of water with them in order to stay adequately hydrated throughout the session.
The cost of participation is £20 (£10 concessions).
