Group Classes

Mindful Movement Training For Facilitators

The Mindful Movement Teacher Training for Facilitators course offers a basic and thorough training in the philosophy, practice and delivery of body work. Held over two weekends, the course investigates the relationship between mind and body, how to identify imbalance and ways of working safely with differing people and conditions. After the first weekend each participant will have acquired a set of safe, gentle and powerful movements to explore in their own practice and to offer to their groups or clients. The second weekend will go deeper and introduce other aspects of delivering mindful movement as well as exploring the experience gained between the sessions.

"The course was great and I left feeling relaxed, enriched and inspired. I enjoyed the interesting mix of people and I appreciated the subtle way you identified our specific requirements and encouraged us gently and with great skill towards our goals." Shona January 2012

THE SMALL PRINT

Qigong (pronounced ‘Chi Kung’) is a powerful type of health exercise, which has been practiced for centuries in China. It is based on gentle movements that are specifically designed to benefit and balance health.

Qigong is easy to learn and enjoyable to do. Even a few minutes of practice can have an invigorating and rejuvenating effect. Regular practice strengthens the whole body and its internal systems (nervous, digestive, respiratory, skeleto-muscular, hormonal, gynaecological, etc). Its ability to help in healing a large variety of chronic and acute injuries and illnesses has been the subject of various research programmes led by the Chinese medical authorities. The aim of Qigong is to promote the movement of Qi (energy) in the body. A key point in Qigong practice is relaxation and deep breathing, both of which allow Qi to flow

Some Qigong movements are very gentle, others more vigorous. Some movements are very large and expansive, others are more subtle, almost imperceptible. All are different and have a very specific effect on body and mind. The deeper the practices, the more we understand the purpose of each movement, allowing our Qigong practice to become ever more enjoyable.

The regular practice of Qigong has a powerful effect on mind, body and spirit. Benefits include increased general health and well being, reduced levels of stress and a brighter and more balanced outlook on the possibilities in our life.
