What can people expect from one of your classes or workshops?
Classes and group sessions involve gongs. We will do a lot of qigong, which is Chinese yoga, so lots of stretching to lengthen and open up the body and loosen the joints. Then as the mind gets more rooted in the physical body, we refine that process and go on to certain types of meditation. And we finish with sound. Sound is nourishing; it allows us to start to tap into the subtler dimensions within each person – the emotions and the mind.
In individual sessions, I work on allowing the ‘qi’– the energy –to flow. There are ways of tonifying and topping up energy but if there are leakages foundations are not there – like bad eating habits, overworking, dehydration, not sleeping, it is very difficult. These need to be addressed first, then we can design a treatment plan that will build on that, so we look at lifestyle changes first.
