Qigong - Private sessions - Guided Practice



Description

Private Integrative Qigong session

Qigong is more than exercise, it's a healing discipline for the body. It's a unique combination of movement, breath and meditation that improves the functioning of virtually all of the systems of the body and has both preventative and curative effects. Traditional qigong is an Eastern self healing practice, originating from China and dating back over 4,000 years. Qigong enables the cultivation of energy, vitality and relaxation and it delivers a wide range of physical and mental health benefits.

We teach Integrative Qigong which is a little different to traditional qigong but just as powerful in terms of delivering the benefits of Mindfulness, Meditation and Movement.

Integrative Qigong is more accessible for our modern lives. Our focus is body awareness, mindfulness and relaxation rather than the cultural and traditional aspects of this ancient practice.

Effectively it is a moving meditation that explores acupressure, slow stretches, gentle flowing movements and mindfulness. Our style is modern and integrative and it brings together traditional qigong, taiji and daoyin yoga.

During practice we focus and anchor our attention on the breath and the body, and we use the meditative techniques of intention and visualisation to support the mind.

Being in stillness allows the body to heal and restore and it encourages a connection to the present moment. Being in stillness is about disconnecting from the ever-constant activity of the mind and intellect and connecting to the heart and body.

The POW Story

It is our mission to inspire people to optimise their health, wellbeing, awareness and vitality through Mindful Movement - the practice of integrative qigong and mindfulness...

Our modern lifestyles are becoming increasingly busy and sedentary and it has become even more important to take moments to unplug from the outer world so that we can connect to ourselves, build emotional resilience and care for our bodies. When we are in balance with our own physical and emotional needs we are better able to show up in our lives, to help the people we care about and to bring motivation, optimism and engagement to our careers, our families, our passions and our overall lives. 

We believe:

 ○  In taking care of our body - it's the only place we have to live

○ In taking moment to connect to our body, mind and spirit, through doing this we can feel happier and healthier

○ In building self awareness so that we can better understand ourselves and better connect and understand the people around us

Learning these skills brings:

○ Improved overall health - physical, mental, emotional, social

○ Emotional resilience and empathy

○ The ability to be calm and effective in the face of our everyday busyness 

○ A sense of wellbeing and an improved quality of life now and in the future
