Embodied Awareness: Explorations through Movement (Apr)

Sat 8 Apr 2017, 13:30-15:30

A series of workshops developed from the Feldenkrais method to support you in reconnecting with the joy of moving freely. Sessions involve gentle experiments that invite you to refine your ability to sense, feel, reflect and play. In this way you will come into contact with your innate capacity for ease, spontaneity and expressive movement. The whole process unfolds at your own pace and will be of benefit for anyone interested in cultivating awareness and creativity through the moving body.

Colin Poole is a choreographer, certified Feldenkrais practitioner, Aikido instructor and holds a Masters degree with distinction in 'Dance and Somatic Wellbeing'.

Mindfulness Qigong - the Path of Relaxation (Apr)

Sat 29 Apr 2017, 13:30-16:30

Zhineng Qigong is a Chinese non-diagnostic health training. It involves a meditative training in active relaxation during both movement and stillness in order to reduce unnecessary mental and physical effort. This leads to increasing health and power.

You will learn how to employ the four foundations of mindfulness to relax correctly in standing, sitting and reclining postures, plus some easy to practice methods. Some of the methods are; 'improving the upper and lower spine', 'La Qi energy accumulation' to help us get a feeling of chi, and 'arm swinging' to aid relaxation, Qi Washing, arm and leg training, and Qigong healing. Making correct use of the Gears of Relaxation we will build good foundations for effective relaxation.

The aim of these methods is the ever increasing cultivation of mindfulness, relaxation and enjoyment. Unifying these three qualities will naturally guide us towards deeply satisfying relaxation and well-being
