“Feel Awesome!” QiGong
“Feel Awesome!” QiGong is a new spin on an ancient practice. The whole point of “Feel Awesome!” QiGong is to feel awesome doing it, and to feel awesome afterwards. QiGong is typically a really weird and inaccessible practice for beginners, but “Feel Awesome!” QiGong is different – you’ll feel the vitalizing power right away. It’s a little like yoga, only with a deep focus on internal awareness and sensation. It can help you feel great, help heal strained body parts, or even soothe deep emotional wounds. And, you can do it any time, in any circumstance, to help alleviate stress and enhance vitality. If you can breathe, you can do “Feel Awesome!” QiGong.
Intro I: Exploring the breath with the body
In this introduction to the ancient Chinese energy practice of QiGong, we’ll discover how to find pleasure in the breath by paying attention to the container that is the body. We’ll explore the inner container, outer container, and epicenter of the breath, playing with how it feels to become delicately and deliciously sensate in our breathing. Hey – you’re gonna breathe anyways – might as well make it fun!
Intro II: Exploring the body with the breath
In our second exploration of QiGong, we’ll leverage our newfound awareness of the breath to take us deeper into the sensate experience of the body. We’ll explore resistance, strength, and drag as we stretch and ventilate using the breath. Finding and feeling the pleasure of deep vitality is the goal. These techniques will stay with you because they’re so easy and pleasurable to do.
Regular weekly sessions
“Feel Awesome!” QiGong class is an hour of deep-dive into your sensate awareness. We explore and expand awareness of “stuck” places within the body, and free and revitalize them. These stuck physical places are often somatic markers for social, psychological, and emotional tensions that impede our ability to perform at our highest level. A weekly dose of “Feel Awesome!” QiGong can help you feel better and stay at the top of your game. (See our calendar for regular sessions open to the public.)
