8 Week Series: Tao Yin, All levels,  with Dondrub Wangchuk

Tao Yin (Qi gong) exercises follow the principles of TCM  consisting of an inner aspect which influences the meridians and an outer aspect which influences the muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. This set works by opening the joints, tendons and ligaments so that chi can flow more freely through the body.  These exercises are done slowly and are very easy to learn.

Tao yin can be practiced by anyone wanting more flexibility in their body. This set includes 38 movements that are practiced to promote mind-body balance, exercise and relaxation.

Mondays, 6-7 pm, April 2 - May 21. Next Session: Mondays, 6-7 pm, June 4 - July 30 (No class on July 16) Use any card or drop in $20 per class. To pre-register email dondrub@powerofbalance.com or call 416-465-6122.

8 Week Class Series: Qigong for a Healthy Body, All levels with Daniel Pikelin

Using the simple Basic, Coiling and Rocking sets we continue to explore Silk Reeling (Chan Si Jing) in order to become better acquainted with our intrinsic Qi in the Dantiens - recognizing, gathering, dispersing, circulating and storing Qi. In the process we sharpen our Yi (mind intention), strengthen the legs, loosen the upper body, deepen the breath, and foster the free movement of the fascia (connective tissue) of our internal organs. Come for a great workout and go home with easy to practice and easy to remember qigong jewels.

Wednesdays, next session starts May 30-July 25, 10:15 to 11:30 am. Use any card or drop-in $20 per class.
No need to pre-register.
