'QiGong for Health'

- SATURDAY 1ST FEBRUARY 1.00-2.30PM

Tel: Julie 07905806383 Email: eva.maria.hunt@gmail.com Website: www.spiritual-wonder.com

Are you looking after yourself or just taking your energies for granted, constantly using up the last drop of energy you have for the day, and then expect to feel on the top of the world the next day? Being surprised to feel depressed or anxious, exhausted physically, mentally or emotionally after pushing yourself to your absolute limits? Any of these ring bells for you?

Throughout the year the energies are changing in the Universe, from season to season, which also means our body is changing and so we should take it into account, when we are looking after ourselves regarding nutrition, exercise, meditation and so on.

This workshop will help you to align with nature’s energies. It is all about aligning your being: Mind, Body and Soul with nature and the Universe through: * Gentle movement – that soothes the BODY * Focused Breathing – that calms the MIND & EMOTIONS * Flowing Meditation – that cleanses the SOUL

What is Qigong for Health? Qigong for Health is a physical practice of intention to repair, restore and revive your Body, Mind & Soul. It is a powerful tool of self-healing combining physical exercises with the power of breathing and mindfulness to gain control over your Life Force Energy/Qi/Chi to enhance your quality of life.

Everything happens from the feet up!

A must for all sports enthusiasts and anyone who has ever suffered with foot or lower limb problems.

The more I learn, the more strongly I feel we must pay more attention to our feet. We squash them into ill-fitting shoes, stand for long periods of time and walk on cement pathways. Our feet are highly sensory, telling us where and how to step, but they also set up the balance of the pelvis and spine. If we stop and pay attention, we may improve back issues, hip and knee pain, and release our necks.

A practical session looking at correct alignment of the foot and lower limb, incorporating take away exercises to restore healthy foot function, improve strength, articulation and proprioception in the feet.

Learn the most common injuries and how to avoid them. Some of the injuries we will be covering: Plantar fasciitis, dropped arches, mortons neuroma, bunions, weak ankles, ankle sprains and strains.

Worksheets will be provided but please bring a pen and paper. Balls, therabands and other small props will be used in the workshop and will be available to buy at the end.
