Well I totally let the ball drop and forgot to remind people that the Intro to Qigong Class was last night at 6:30 pm.
I got distracted yesterday by an identity theft issue that had to be straightened out Wednesday and Thursday morning (someone filed their taxes out with my social security number). Yikes!
For those who weren’t able to attend, we talked about the health benefits of qigong and learned some exercises that can be used while at work and during difficult interactions with others to keep your balance and energy up – as well the first part of Morning Medical Qigong. If you had questions that you wanted to ask, but weren’t able to, please be sure to comment below. Don’t hesitate - others probably have the same questions and will be grateful that you had the nerve to actually do it! Or just write “Hello!” to let me know you were here. (:
NEW FORMAT FOR QIGONG STARTS NEXT WEEK! (OCT 15th)
If you came to any of the sessions earlier this year, there have been some major changes since then:
1) We are no longer at West Hills Unitarian Church.
As it turns out, blenders and distracting smells from PCC cooking classes were not particularly conducive to moving meditation. The dog training classes they were going to hold right outside the same room this Fall also didn’t sound too appealing (as much as I love dogs). Time to move!
2) Classes will now be held at my Barbur Blvd office.
Come and see my amazing, transformable waiting room to qigong space. Quiet, relaxing and easy to find, it has been a great space to meet in so far. Be sure to come through the double doors in the back of the building and keep the wedge in the door as doors lock after-hours.
3) Classes from here on out will be about 90% experiential. Let’s face it. I’m super excited and love to talk about Chinese Medicine and the body, but the truth of the matter is that we learn the most by doing. My goal from here on out is to immerse you in the experience of qigong and to have a take-away each week that you can carry into your daily life. There will of course be room to ask questions at the end.
4) Be a part of designing the new qigong classes! What do you want to see? What are you interested in? Email me or comment below.
5) Classes will be drop in and by donation through the end of October. Because I am working with a new space and format, I’ve decided to keep classes open to drop in. Donations are accepted and welcome. It’s anonymous, so just do what feels light and right to you. This will give us a few weeks to get a stride going that works for everyone. Classes will start at 6:30 and go until somewhere between 7:30 and 7:45 pm.
Hope to see you in practice soon,
Please feel free to leave comments or questions below - or just say, "Hi!" -- or you can email me as well. Thanks! Your input it very much appreciated.
