"I enjoy Misty's Qigong classes and find them extremely relaxing. I feel I have distinctly elevated energy levels the next day and plan to make Qigong a regular practice."

What is 'dan tian'?

There are three dan tians in the body. The upper dan tian is situated between the eyebrows, also known as the third eye. The middle dan tian is in the middle of the chest, the heart area. The one we refer to most often in Qigong and Taiji practice is known as the lower dan tian. It translates as elixir or cinnabar (dan) and field (tian). The lower dan tian is where qi (energy) is cultivated and stored and then circulates throughout the body.

Being with Breath & Sound

Our lungs are continually nourished by our breathing. Integration of breath, movement and attention offers an effective way of clearing and revitalising not only our lungs but all the meridians in our body.

Breath has its own vibration which extends to sound, even the words for our breath's process, inhalation and exhalation contain the root word 'hal' meaning wholeness. Bringing awareness to our breath reminds us that we are here and can help us to feel grounded and present.
