This Qigong class is a great escape from stressful city life and Misty is very good at explaining the technique and reasoning. We're complete beginners but she makes everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Misty is very warm and immediately puts you at ease. We enjoy the class a lot.

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.

Being with our Autumn Rhythms

Welcome to Autumn! It can be so helpful to create a practice that flows with our natural rhythms and this includes the changing of the seasons. Our relationship with these changes can help us maintain balanced healthy lives.

There is a fifth season in Chinese medicine called Late Summer which begins mid August and ends at the equinox. We have just transitioned from Late Summer which is connected with Earth energy and the stomach and spleen. In Chinese Medicine every season is associated with an organ, an emotion, an element, a direction, a colour, a taste and an animal.
