Meridians & Movement: A Transformational Yoga-Qi Gong Immersion
with Setareh Moafi, Ph.D., L.Ac. & Salvador Cefalu, M.S., L.Ac.
Saturday, May 13th 9:30am - 12:30pm
Setareh and Salvador will guide a series of transformational practices designed to target the channel systems of Classical Chinese Medicine to activate the energy of Spring for renewal, rebirth and transformation.
In this workshop you will learn fundamental theory and movement practices to help you:
- Release patterns of chronic stiffness and pain. Movements to free these blockages will allow Qi to flow smoothly and prepare the body for deeper exercises.
- Strengthen and consolidate Qi (energy) to fortify the metabolism, enhance mental clarity, reduce fatigue, and improve sexual, respiratory and digestive health. These practices also support weight loss and help trim the waistline.
Mondays 11:45am - 12:45pm with Salvador Cefalu, M.S., L.Ac.
The word “Qi” (or “chi”) means “life force” or "vital energy" of the body and the word “Gong” means "skill" that is cultivated through steady practice. Thus, Qi Gong means “the skill of cultivating energy.” The practice involves gentle, rhythmic exercises combined with simple breathing techniques to relieve stress, support detoxification, regulate the immune system and thereby increase the body’s innate healing abilities. Qi Gong is quickly becoming popular in the West for its healing power and rejuvenating properties. The exercise routines can be learned easily and are perfect for people of all ages and fitness levels.
