In this workshop we will swim and soar into the world of Qigong. Qigong, which literally translates as "Life Energy Cultivation", is an ancient Chinese movement, meditation, and healing tradition. This practice offers tools to disperse tension and stagnation from the body, as well as ways to calm the mind, regulate the breath, rejuvenate one's energy, and listen deeply to the subtle signals from our bodies and from the world around us. While cultivating a meditative awareness on breath, circulating our attention through various points and pathways in the body, and embodying imagery from animals and nature, we will explore how this practice transforms our relationship to our bodies, other bodies, and our environment. With an introduction to various forms from Qigong and Baguazhang, breathing techniques, meditative visualizations, and circle walking practices, this workshop will serve as a bridge between the energetic body and the dancing body.
