Offerings By This Teacher
Qigong is a wonderful mind/body exercise form originating in China over 5,000 years ago. Practiced by millions of people around the world, qigong is considered the ultimate energy workout. By combining gentle stretches, strengthening postures, and flowing movements, qigong opens the body’s energy system in a therapeutic way. The word “qi” ( pronounced chi ) means life force and “gong” means to work skillfully with. Qigong practice teaches one how to work with energy in six different ways; cultivating, circulating, clearing old energy, exchanging, transforming, and storing in the center. Qigong movements mirror the movements of nature, especially the fluidity of water. Combined with breathing techniques, qigong releases stress, boosts the immune system, respiratory and cardiovascular systems, and increases the body’s innate healing potential. It’s a great choice for anyone looking to increase overall wellness and find more energy and joy in life.

Welcoming a child into your life is a sacred time and can often be quite demanding of energy, patience and flexibility. The vibrational field of energy transmitted between mom and baby is profound. By learning self-care techniques that cultivate inner peace, relaxation and energization, mom gains awareness of how to navigate the challenges of sleep disruptions, hormonal changes and changes in relationships following the birth of baby. This class brings together moms with babies newborn through 8 months in the serene, nurturing environment of Bindupoint Yoga. Practicing breathing techniques, simple yoga stretches, gentle qigong movements and meditation with other new moms and babies offer support and inspiration during the early months of motherhood. Baby massage, discussion of topics relating to motherhood and personal sharing will be integrated into each session. When mom and baby are in harmony with each other a deep bond and connection is present right from the beginning.
