Qigong with Trees ~ Earthgym!
Fall 3-Class Series
Wednesdays, 9/25, 10/9, 10/23 • 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Green Lake Park
Step into your Joy and Vitality! This class is a unique practice combining the fundamental and powerful practices of Qigong 气功 with barefooting, staff training, stone-toning and tree weaving with ropes.
Trees, rivers, mountains, wildlife, and Nature are naturally Exuberant. Their strength is interwoven with all life and grounded in our Earth’s massive Qi. And Qi – our vital energy – is in some languages also translated as JOY!
Remember, recover, and restore your natural strength and vitality – come train and be prepared to laugh and smile!
Join us for an invigorating and profound practice with the Big Trees at Green Lake!
When: Wednesdays, 9/25, 10/9, 10/23, 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Where: Green Lake Park (by the Bathhouse Theater on the NW side of the lake)
Much of this practice is inspired by my wilderness and movement training with Mick, also known as the Barefoot Sensei. You can view a youtube clip of some sample movements from this practice. Here’s another link to a training I did with him in Tahoe.Among many things, this class will help you:
- Step outside and play;
- Access your natural body wisdom;
- Restore your strength and vitality; and
- Establish your healthy connection with the Earth.
